The two Martins of the “Three Amigos” will join forces for a night of individual Q&As along with singing, banter and banjo playing presented in an interview-style format at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., Sept. 6.

Both entertainers have had incredible careers.  Having spent his early days in show biz writing for “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” by the end of the 1970s Martin was one of the hottest stand-up comics in the country and quickly transformed that success into a movie career.  Lately he’s been expressing his almost lifelong love for playing music, having won a best bluegrass album Grammy for his 2010 release, The Crow: New Songs For The Five-String Banjo. Martin is touring this summer with Steep Canyon Rangers and Edie Brickell.

Short’s entertainment résumé is equally impressive and includes stints on “Second City” and “Saturday Night Live.”  With movie credits including “Inner Space,” “Three Fugitives,” “Father Of The Bride” and “Mars Attacks,” Short received a Tony nomination and won an Outer Critics Circle Award for his work in a musical version of Neil Simon’s “The Goodbye Girl.”  Short also co-wrote and starred in “Fame Becomes Me.”

A Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood exclusive social media presale begins July 10 at 10 a.m. with the general onsale launching July 11 at 11 a.m.  All times Eastern Daylight.  Visit for more information.
