The Ontario-born actor began his career with smaller roles on American TV shows including “The Associates” and “I’m a Big Girl Now.” His big break came in 1982 with a role on “SCTV: Network 90,” the American version of the hit Canadian comedy series “SCTV.” Following the success of “SCTV,” Short returned to New York City for a year-long stint on “Saturday Night Live” (SNL). Shortly after his small-screen success, Short made his big-screen debut in “Three Amigos,” opposite Chevy Chase and Steve Martin. He has appeared in other films such as “Father of the Bride,” “Mars Attacks,” “The Prince of Egypt” and “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause,” among others.

In addition to his TV and feature film work, Short has appeared in the stage productions of “Godspell,” “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” and “The Apple Tree,” to name a few. Between films and live theatre, Short has written and produced three comedy specials – “Martin Short’s Concert for the North Americas,” “I, Martin Short Goes Hollywood” and “The Show Formerly Known as the Martin Short Show,” which earned Short an Emmy Award.
