Martin Short has proven his ability as a comedic chameleon through his host of hilarious impressions. Many of those characters will appear at this performance. With the tremendous exposure he gained on “Saturday Night Live,” he was on the Hollywood fast track and quickly crossed over into feature film work.
Short made his big screen debut in “Three Amigos,” where he worked alongside former “Saturday Night Live” colleagues Chevy Chase and Steve Martin. Currently, Mr. Short is the voice of Cat in the Hat in the “Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About that!” for the PBS series based on Dr. Seuss’s famous children’s book for which he has also been nominated for an Emmy. His appearance in South Bend is a gift to Fischoff because he believes in the importance of its award-winning music programs, which are provided free of charge to community children and youth. Fischoff's award-winning quintet, Arundo Donax, will also perform with Martin Short during the show.
A limited number of $10.00 Notre Dame student tickets for this event are available beginning Tuesday, January 24th. Those students presenting a valid Notre Dame ID may purchase one ticket per person at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center Ticket Office windows ONLY from noon-6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
