Short has won fans and accolades in television, film and theater since his breakout season on “Saturday Night Live” more than 30 years ago. He became an SNL fan favorite for his portrayal of characters such as Ed Grimley, lawyer Nathan Thurm and “legendary songwriter” Irving Cohen before crossing over into feature films and Emmy and Tony Award-winning acting roles. Short’s New York Times bestselling memoir, “I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend,” was published in 2014.
In 2018, Martin and Short’s Netflix special “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life” received four Emmy nominations.
