Adrian Bohm Presents is proud to announce that Steve Martin and Martin Short will bring their critically acclaimed comedy tour Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t for the first time to Australian and New Zealand audiences in November. This celebrated comedy show redefines the form in unexpected and profound ways, from two of the funniest, most influential and acclaimed talents of the past century. The duo will be joined on stage by Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers. Tickets for Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t go on sale Tuesday, 7 May. To purchase, please visit ticketek.com.au. The Sydney show will be part of the Just For Laughs Sydney Comedy Festival.
Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t follows Steve Martin and Martin Short’s sold-out tour An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life. The tour was filmed for a Netflix special that earned rave reviews and garnered four Emmy® nominations. Fueled by comedic precision and anchored in a lifelong friendship, Rolling Stone called the special “wryly hip but unexpectedly touching,” with the New York Times describing it “gleeful and satisfying.”
Steve Martin and Martin Short’s humor is often subversive, but it is always a joyous self-deprecating romp from two comedy masters driven to make each other laugh as much as the audience. 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.
Martin and Short’s chemistry and timing on stage reflects a friendship of more than three decades; they met for the first time on the set of the 1986 film Three Amigos. The comedy icons have been touring together since 2016, when they launched their first live show titled “A Very Stupid Conversation.”Martin Short, a celebrated comedian and actor, has won fans and accolades in television, film and theatre since his breakout season on Saturday Night Live over 30 years ago.Short has also returned to SNL as host three times, and performed in the series’ landmark 40th anniversary special in February 2015. Other recent television credits include Hairspray Live! Maya & Marty, Mulaney, How I Met Your Mother and the critically acclaimed PBS series Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That.
NOW YOU SEE THEM, SOON YOU WON’T goes on sale Tuesday 7 May. This tour cannot be extended.
