Steve Martin and Martin Short Announce US Tour Dates

on February 18, 2020, 3:20pm

Legendary comedians Martin Short and Steve Martin have announced a string of US dates as part of their “Funniest Show in Town at the Moment Tour”.

The 15 stops will follow the duo’s previously announced March run of the show in the UK, with US dates kicking off on July 17th in Irvine, California, then making their way through the states, closing on September 19th in Atlanta, Georgia.

“The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” promises a set of jokes arriving at “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.”


In addition to the two comedians, the tour will feature performances from former Late Show With David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer, current Jimmy Kimmel Live pianist Jeff Babko, Della Mae, and Alison Brown. Additionally, Martin’s own bluegrass group the Steep Canyon Rangers will play select dates. 

In a press statement Short expressed, “There are few people that I truly admire and Steve Martin is very close to being one of them,” Martin also noted, “Marty and I love touring, especially while we can still tolerate each other.”

Tickets for the new dates go on sale on February 21st, and you’ll be able to pick them up here. See them while you can, as the two will likely have to halt dates soon to start work on their upcoming Hulu series.
