(First featured 2001)
This visual funny man hails from Hamilton, Ontario. He began his show biz career performing a weekly television show in his attic bedroom.
He eventually moved onto the stage in musicals and then joined Toronto’s Second City. He performed with the SCTV Comedy Network and spent one season with Saturday Night Live.
He moved easily into movies with the Three Amigos and has continued playing many memorable characters such as Franck in Father of the Bride. It seems the audience loves him best when he becomes one of his quirky, hilarious characters.
The Martin Short Show had a limited lifespan but Short is already back in a new talk show format as Jiminy Glick in Primetime Glick with Martin Short.
