For the last few years, Steve Martin and Martin Short have been touring in a two-man show called “Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life.” A combination of conversation, standup and music, the show was turned into a Netflix special, which is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded), as well as for its writing, directing and music.
Martin and Short (or should that be Steve and Martin?) talked to TheWrap about the show, and their past, present and futures.
