Martin/Short

Steve Martin and Martin Short will perform at the Orpheum Theatre in May 2018. They'll be joined by the Steep Canyon Rangers.

Longstanding actors and comedians (and two-thirds of The Three Amigos) Steve Martin and Martin Short are scheduled to play this spring at the Sioux City Orpheum Theatre.

Opening May 19, the stage show collaboation show will be presented through a mix of stand-up comedy, musical numbers and conversations about their experiences and careers.

Joining the two comedians that night is the Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers, along with jazz pianist and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" musician Jeff Babko. 

Martin and Short have both led extensive careers in the comedy business. Martin spent many years performing his brand of absurdist humor to sold out shows before branching out as a Hollywood actor in films like "The Jerk," "Cheaper by the Dozen" and "Planes, Trains & Automobiles." He's also an accomplished banjo player, earning himself a Grammy Award in 2002.

Short got his start on the Canadian sketch comedy show "SCTV" before moving to "Saturday Night Live." His stay at "SNL" helped revive the show's fanbase and successfully launched his career even further into television and film. Short also saw success in theater, earning himself a Tony Award in 1999 for his lead role in the Broadway revival of "Little Me."
