Description

This critically acclaimed comedy tour is coming to Belfast in March 2020!

This celebrated comedy show redefines the form in unexpected and profound ways, from two of the funniest, most influential and acclaimed talents of the past century. The duo will be joined on stage by Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers.  Tickets go on sale Friday 27 September at 10am from all usual outlets.

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 tour was filmed for a Netflix special that earned rave reviews and garnered four Emmy® nominations. Fueled 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 humor is often subversive, but it is always a 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 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.

Martin and Short’s chemistry and timing on stage reflects a friendship of more than three decades; they met for the first time on the set of the 1986 film Three Amigos. The comedy icons have been touring together since 2016, when they launched their first live show titled “A Very Stupid Conversation.”

Tickets go on sale Friday 27 September at 10am. To book tickets, please visit www.ticketmaster.ie or call 08442774455
