Comedy icons Steve Martin and Martin Short will bring their critically acclaimed tour “The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” to the UK and Ireland for the first time in 2020. This celebrated show redefines the form in unexpected and profound ways, from two of the funniest, most influential and much-loved talents of the past century.
The tour will kick off at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on the 9th March 2020 with dates at the 3Arena in Dublin, The SSE Arena in Belfast, two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall and shows at Manchester Arena and Resorts World Arena Birmingham.
“The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” follows Steve Martin and Martin Short’s 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. Fuelled 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.”
Steve Martin and Martin Short’s brand of humour is an often subversive but always 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 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.
This side-splitting tour promises to be the hottest comedy ticket of the year. Book now to avoid disappointment!
