Martin Short

Sunday evening was date night for my husband and I.  We went out for supper to Zorba's Family Restaurant.  The food is really good there and the service from our experience has always been good.  After supper we headed over to the E.A. Rawlinson Center for the Performing Arts to see Martin Short.  Our son won tickets at work on Friday and wasn't able to attend the performance so he gave them to his dad and I.

What a wonderful Canadian performer.  This man has gone along ways with his career.  He performed many of his impersonations that he has done over the years.  He portrayed Ed Grimley, Giminy Glick and Franck the Wedding Planner to name a few.  He also did his impression of Katherine Hepburn, Liz Taylor, Richard Burton and even Betty Davis.  He had the audience in stitches throughout his 1 and half hour performance. 

He even performed a couple of songs including this one you can see on YouTube -  "goodbye al qaeda's rose" performed not that long ago on the Late Show with David Letterman. 

Martin ended the evenings performance with a tribute to a few other Canadians that made their way to the United States with their acting skills and have become famous entertainers such as Donald Sutherland & his son Keifer, Howie Mandel, Keanu Reeves and Eugene Levy to name a few. 

Then ended with 
Oh! Canada, We Stand On Guard For Thee

A wonderful performance given by a very very talented Canadian - Martin Short.  If you love Comedy and you ever have the chance to see him perform live, you should go.
