Event Details

Comedy icons Steve Martin and Martin Short will bring their critically acclaimed tour “The Funniest Show in Town at the Moment” to Birmingham 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 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.

Martin and Short’s chemistry and timing on stage reflects a friendship forged over three decades which developed when they met for the first time on the set of the 1986 film “Three Amigos”. These two titans of comedy have been touring together since 2016, when they launched their first live show entitled “A Very Stupid Conversation.”

Definitely don't miss this one!
