Join Merrimack Parks & Recreation and Best of Times Travel as we make our way out to one of New England’s Premiere concert venues, Tanglewood, where Comedy Legends Steve Martin and Martin Short have joined forces for their hit show “An Evening You Will Forget For The Rest Of Your Life.” Martin and Short
will be joined by the Grammy Award winning bluegrass band Steep Canyon Rangers. Audiences can expect an evening of nonstop laughs as the duo recall their iconic careers, creative influences and most memorable encounters, uniquely presented though a blend of stand-up, musical numbers and conversations about their lives in show business. The show will have costume changes, improv, bluegrass from Martin’s six-piece band, Steep Canyon Rangers, and show tunes from Short and his accompanist, pianist Jeff Babko. There’s even a bit of cross-dressing. (“We do that mostly backstage,” Martin joked.) The comedian Catherine O’Hara has called their act a children’s show for adults.
Steve Martin is one of the highest-profile comedians in the world. On Comedy Central’s list of “100 Greatest Stand-Up Comics” of all time, Martin ranked sixth, an honor that should come as no surprise to those familiar with Martin’s work. Not only has Steve Martin achieved great success and critical acclaim as a stand-up comedian, but he has also starred in numerous movies and television shows over the years. This Academy Award winning comedian is currently preparing for a tour with Martin Short, and you can bet that this will be one of the most talked about tours of the year in the comedy world.
There are some figures in the comedy world that can turn up decade after decade in movies and television shows and still command the same response of laughter from an audience no matter what era it is! Martin Short, an Emmy Award winner and Tony Award winner, got his start performing in sketches for television and in stand up clubs across the country, and he’s returning to his roots now to bring all of the fun back to the stage for his fans to enjoy!
