Martin Short, a celebrated comedian and actor, has won fans and accolades in television, film and theater since his breakout season on Saturday Night Live over 30 years ago.
Short won his first Emmy in 1982 while working on Canada’s SCTV Comedy Network, which brought him to the attention of the producers of SNL. He became an SNL fan-favorite for his portrayal of characters such as Ed Grimley, lawyer Nathan Thurm and “legendary songwriter” Irving Cohen. His popularity and exposure on SNL led Short to cross over quickly into feature films. He made his debut in Three Amigos and followed with Innerspace, Three Fugitives, Clifford, Pure Luck and Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks. One of Short’s most memorable roles was in the remake of Father of the Bride as Franck the wedding planner, a role he reprised a few years later in Father of the Bride Part II.
Short lent his voice to the animated film Madagascar 3 and Tim Burton’s Oscar-nominated Frankenweenie. An accomplished stage actor, Short won a Tony, Theatre World Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for his role in the revival of Little Me.
He was also nominated for a Tony and took home an Outer Critics Circle Award for the musical version of Neil Simon’s The Goodbye Girl. Short co-wrote and starred in Fame Becomes Me, prompting The New York Times to describe Short as “a natural for live musicals, a limber singer and dancer who exudes a fiery energy that makes you want to reach for your sunglasses.”A two-time primetime Emmy winner and multi-nominated for both primetime and daytime Emmys, Short returned to television in 1998 for the miniseries Merlin and host of The Martin Short Show. In 2001, he launched the popular comedy Primetime Glick and in 2010 received critical acclaim for his role in FX’s drama series Damages. Short has also returned to SNL as host multiple times, and performed in the series’ landmark 40th anniversary special in February 2015. Other recent television credits include Mulaney, How I Met Your Mother and the critically acclaimed PBS series Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That.
Short co-stared with Maya Rudolph on his new weekly NBC variety show series Maya and Marty in Manhattan . Short’s New York Times bestselling memoir, I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend, was published in 2014.
In 1994, Short was awarded the Order of Canada — the Canadian equivalent to British knighthood. He was also inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame in June 2000.
