“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.

Martin’s 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.”

The duo has 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.
