Steve Martin and Martin Short to launch Netflix comedy special
Comedy elder statesmen Steve Martin and Martin Short will be releasing a comedy special on Netflix cheekily titled Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget For The Rest Of Your Life. The two comics announced the news in a creatively-shot video on Martin’s Twitter account.
Martin and Short filmed the special at the Peace Center in Greenville, South Carolina while on their ongoing national tour. So for fans who aren’t able to see the two comedians live, they have this feature to look forward to and more. The special will have all-new material that viewers will enjoy in the form of musical sketches and conversations about their storied careers. Expect the wildest exchanges that encompass their lives in the topsy-turvy worlds of showbiz and stand-up.
Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers and renowned jazz pianist and Jimmy Kimmel Live band member Jeff Babko provide the soundtrack for the special.
Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget For The Rest Of Your Life was directed by Marcus Raboy. Martin and Short serve as the executive producers along with Lorne Michaels, Erin David and Marc Gurvitz.
Okey dokey. Here’s a video with Marty and me talking about our new Netflix special coming this summer! Now we’re like Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle except for the pay! pic.twitter.com/zd4hd1kQ74
