Saturday, October 15th

Steve Martin & Martin Short : You Should See What They Look Like Now

When: 8:00pm
Where: Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Auditorium, 399 McCallie Ave
Cost: $65-$250

Steve Martin & Martin Short will be in Chattanooga this weekend. I really don’t need to say anything more, but I will. This dynamic, comedic duo represents three decades of friendship between two of the funniest, most influential and acclaimed talents of the past century. Both Martin and Short have had successful careers in Hollywood and in their “You Won’t Believe What They Look Like Today” tour, the jokes come at you at a rapid-fire pace with little set-up and big punch lines as they mock Hollywood and the fickle nature of celebrity, but the comedy truly soars when they lovingly (and relentlessly) roast each other. You know… a true friendship. Do not hesitate as there are only a few seats left. Click here to grab your ticket before it’s completely sold out!
