Steve Martin and Martin Short

Comedy legends Steve Martin and Martin Short will be hitting the Peoria Civic Center Theater in Peoria, IL on Saturday, April 20, 2019.

In this special performance, Martin and Short present new material in a variety of musical sketches – and conversations on their iconic careers, most memorable encounters, and of course their legendary lives in show-business and stand-up. Martin and Short will be joined on stage by Americana all-star trio I’m With Her, and renowned jazz pianist and Jimmy Kimmel Live band member Jeff Babko. Steve Martin is one of the most acclaimed and beloved talents in entertainment. His work has earned numerous honors including an Academy Award, five Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, the Mark Twain Award, and the Kennedy Center Honors.

Many of Martin’s films are considered modern classics including: The Jerk, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Roxanne, Parenthood, L.A. Story, and Father of the Bride. As an author, Martin’s work includes the novel An Object of Beauty; the play Picasso at the Lapin Agile; a collection of comic pieces, Pure Drivel; a bestselling novella, Shopgirl; and his memoir Born Standing Up. His latest play, Meteor Shower, just concluded its Broadway run in a production starring Amy Schumer, Keegan-Michael Key, Laura Benanti, and Jeremy Shamos, and directed by Jerry Zaks. Steve Martin is also an accomplished Grammy Award-winning, boundary-pushing bluegrass banjoist and composer. In 2013, Martin released his third full-length album called Love Has Come For You, a unique collaboration with songwriter Edie Brickell. Love Has Come For You won a Grammy for Best American Roots Song for the title track and inspired the Broadway musical Bright Star, which received five Tony Awards.
