Steve Martin & Martin Short
Sept 11 2020 | Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre

Steve Martin and Martin Short bring “The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” with special guests Paul Shaffer and Alison Brown & Fair Weather Friends to Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre as part of the Fifth Third Bank Concert Series on Friday, September 11 at 8 p.m.

Steve Martin and Martin Short’s “The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” is a show that redefines the form in unexpected and profound ways, from two of the funniest, most influential and acclaimed talents of the past century. Their humor is often subversive, but it is always a joyous self-deprecating romp from two comedy masters driven to make each other laugh as much as the audience. The jokes come at you at a rapid-fire pace with little set-up and big punch lines as they mock Hollywood and the fickle nature of celebrity, but the comedy truly soars when they lovingly (and relentlessly) roast each other.

Martin and Short’s chemistry and timing on stage reflects a friendship forged over three decades which developed when they met for the first time on the set of the 1986 film Three Amigos. These two titans of comedy have been touring together since 2015, when they launched their first live show entitled “A Very Stupid Conversation.” “The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” follows Steve Martin and Martin Short’s celebrated sold-out tour “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life.” The show was filmed for a Netflix special that earned rave reviews and garnered four Emmy® nominations. Fueled by comedic precision and anchored in a lifelong friendship, Rolling Stone called the special “wryly hip but unexpectedly touching,” with the New York Times describing it “gleeful and satisfying.”
