Steve Martin and Martin Short- The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment
Comedy icons Steve Martin and Martin Short bring “The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” to The Palace Theatre in Stamford for one performance. The duo will be joined on stage by former Late Show with David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer and Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers.
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.
