Brighten your summer with a very special treat: tickets to Martin Short's uproarious new comedy revue, Fame Becomes Me. This outrageous send-up of a one-man show features music and lyrics by Tony Award winners Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman (Hairspray) and has been called "a darn funny night!" Fans of Martin Short are sure to enjoy this spirited collection of gags, skits, and wisecracks set to an exuberant score, and delivered with customary inimitable timing by one of the most original comedians of the past thirty years.
A native of Hamilton, Ontario, Short began his career in theater and cabaret, perfecting the stand-up routines, the spot-on impressions, and the lovingly grotesque line of characters that would eventually make him such a memorable addition to Second City TV and Saturday Night Live. Audiences who still chuckle over the memory of such over-the-top misfits as "Ed Grimley" and "Jiminy Glick" as well as Short's great performances in Three Amigos with Chevy Chase and Steve Martin and again with Steve Martin in Father of the Bride will not want to miss this chance to see him live!
Fame Becomes Me begins as a "retrospective" of the comedian's "fabulous, perfect life," but quickly spins out of control as the truth comes out in all its raunchy, irreverent, chaotic glory. All of Martin Short's wacky attributes are here: the unpredictable goofiness, the insane situations, the self-mocking vulnerability -- and the essential humanity. The result is hilarious!
If you really appreciate great live comedy, snap up a couple of tickets to see a master of the art! Martin Short's Fame Becomes Me will have you rolling in the aisles!
