Steve Martin and Martin Short – A Review

I have always been a huge fan of Steve Martin and when I learned he was coming to the Winstar World Casino just a quick hour drive away I knew this was a once in a lifetime chance to get to see him live and in person. It was a no brainer and enjoy it tremendously I did.

He is probably in my top 5 comedians including his roles in Roxanne, The Jerk, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, on Saturday Night Live, and my personal favorite Three Amigos.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this show and tour entitled “A Very Stupid Conversation”. Martin Short, another one of my favorites, played the fantastic role of stirring up the craziness between these two senior citizen jokers. It was a funny mixture of casual comedy, music, general insanity on the part of Short and the two of them spending most of the evening cutting each other down in some of the funniest ways ever heard. To see these two older men command the stage with such energy and passion after 3 decades of making most of us laugh was quite a pleasant surprise.

If you get a chance to go see these two, do it. It was better than I expected and I laughed my self silly.

After all, you never know how long we will get to enjoy the comedic brilliance of two men as funny as these are.
