ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

Steve Martin has won an Academy Award®, five Grammy Awards, an Emmy® Award, the Mark Twain Award and the Kennedy Center Honors. Many of Martin’s films are considered modern classics, including “The Jerk,”” Planes, Trains & Automobiles,” “Roxanne,” “Parenthood,” “L.A. Story” and “Father of the Bride.” 

As an author, Martin’s work includes the novel “An Object of Beauty,” the play “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” a collection of comic pieces “Pure Drivel,” a best-selling novella “Shopgirl” and his memoir “Born Standing Up.” 

His latest play, “Meteor Shower,” will premiere on Broadway this Nov. 29th in a production starring Emmy Award winner Amy Schumer, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony winner Laura Benanti and Jeremy Shamos, and directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks. 

Martin is also an accomplished Grammy Award-winning, bluegrass banjoist and composer. In 2013, he released his third full-length album, “Love Has Come For You,” a unique collaboration with songwriter Edie Brickell. “Love Has Come For You” won a Grammy for “Best American Roots Song” for the title track and inspired their musical “Bright Star.”

Bright Star received five Tony Award nominations and received Outstanding New Broadway Musical and Outstanding New Score at the Outer Critics Circle Awards. Martin and Brickell’s second album together, “So Familiar,” was released on Rounder Records and featured 12 remarkable songs that bought the acclaimed duo’s musical collaboration into fresh creative territory. Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers recently released their newest collaboration, “The Long-Awaited Album,” on Rounder Records.

Since his breakout performances on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Short has become a household name with roles in feature films including the science fiction comedy “Innerspace,” “Three Amigos” and as the quirky wedding planner, Franck Eggelhoffer, in the “Father of the Bride” series. 

He has appeared in Broadway productions including his 2006 revue “Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me” and the 1998 revival of Neil Simon’s “Little Me.” 

Short has earned two Emmy Awards for his writing in SCTV Network 90, as well as his involvement in the 2014 AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Mel Brooks.
