I listened to the audio version of Martin Short’s 2014 autobiography — read by the author, of course.
Very funny. Plenty of name dropping. Embarrassing stories.
Short remembers his favourite years as those with the Second City comedy troupe in Toronto. And playing whacky and weird SCTV.
He doesn’t remember Saturday Night Live all that fondly.
I enjoyed most Marty’s stories of his earliest years in the entertainment business. Short is 7-years older than me. I can relate.
“What a wonderful book! If only it was about someone else.” (Larry David)
In writing this, no doubt Marty was influenced by his buddy Steve Martin’s 2007 memoir Born Standing Up. Also excellent.
With friends in Idaho, summer 2019, I saw Martin Short and Steve Martin LIVE in An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life.
