Known as 'The Funniest Show in Town At The Moment' the two superstars of comedy will feature special guests former 'Late Show with David Letterman' band leader Paul Shaffer and Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers

After the show was postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic—the promoters Parachute Concerts LLC and The Palace Theatre in Stamford announce that comedian legends 'Martin Short and Steve Martin: The Funniest Show in Town At The Moment' will appear at the Palace Theatre on August 26 at 7:30 PM featuring special guests former band leader Paul Shaffer of 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers. The two comedic geniuses make themselves laugh so hard as much as the audience!

The jokes come at the audience with rapid-fire pace and precision; with little set-up and big punch lines as they mock Hollywood as we know it and the fickle nature of celebrity. Their slapstick humor really soar to the max when they lovingly and relentlessly roast each other to the point where it's all a barrel of laughs!

Their chemistry and timing on stage reflect their friendship when they met starring in the 1986 film together, 'The Three Amigos', and have forged a friendship over three decades. Both were former cast members and occasional guests on Saturday Night Live (SNL). They have been touring together since 2015, when they launched their first live show entitled, "A Very Stupid Conversation."

"We are thrilled to be able to bring these two legendary Comedians/Actors to Stamford. With the addition of bluegrass music sensations," said Ross Atamian in an email statement, promoter of Parachute Concerts, LLC. "The Steep Canyon Rangers and (Late Show with) David Letterman's iconic bandleader Paul Shaffer; this will make for an unforgettable evening of Comedy & Music. This show plays in larger theaters/amphitheaters. We're excited to present the opportunity for fans to see these two icons up-close and in person at The (intimate) Palace Theatre."
