Steve Martin and Martin Short have been touring together for years now, so it’s about time somebody recorded their act and made it available for your on-demand viewing pleasure.
Anyone surprised that it’ll be on Netflix?
Here are the fellas with their announcement. Are they calling it Steve Martin Short, though?
Okey dokey. Here’s a video with Marty and me talking about our new Netflix special coming this summer! Now we’re like Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle except for the pay! pic.twitter.com/zd4hd1kQ74
