Steve Martin, Martin Short coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
For a couple of comedy legends, Steve Martin and Martin Short are surprisingly familiar faces in Tampa Bay.
Martin's brought his bluegrass band to the Mahaffey Theater in 2013, and Short has performed twice at Ruth Eckerd Hall since 2008. And in 2014, they came to the Mahaffey together for a night of fun and games.
Now they're bringing their joint roadshow back to Tampa Bay, this time to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Feb. 11. Tickets start at $100.25, and will go on sale Saturday. Click here for details.
The actors and occasional co-stars (Three Amigos, Father of the Bride) will trade stories, banter with the audience and each other, and generally offer more laughs than Martin has given paying audiences since largely quitting stand-up years ago. Any chance you get to see either of them live is one not to be missed, so to catch them both together is a treat.
