Martin Hayter Short, CM (born March 26, 1950) is a Canadian American actor,[1] comedian, writer, singer, voice actor and producer. He is best known for his comedy work, particularly on the TV programs SCTV and Saturday Night Live. He starred in such comedic films as Three Amigos (1986), Innerspace (1987), Father of the Bride (1991), Pure Luck (1991), Father of the Bride Part II (1995), Mars Attacks! (1996), and Jungle 2 Jungle (1997) and created the characters of Jiminy Glick and Ed Grimley. He also has appeared on stage, and won the Tony Award for the 1999 Broadway revival of Little Me.

Early life[edit]

Short was born in Hamilton, Ontario, the youngest of five children of Olive (née Hayter), a violinist, and Charles Patrick Short, a corporate executive with Stelco, a Canadian steel company. He and his siblings were raised as Catholics.[2] He had three older brothers, David (now deceased), Michael, and Brian, and one older sister, Nora.[3][4]

Short's father was a Catholic from Crossmaglen, South Armagh (present-day Northern Ireland), who came to North America as a stowaway during the Irish War of Independence.[5][6] Short's mother, concertmistress of the Hamilton Symphony Orchestra, encouraged Martin's early creative endeavours.[2] His eldest brother, David, was killed in a car accident in 1962 when Short was 12. His mother died of cancer in 1967, his father two years later of complications from a stroke.[7]

Short attended Westdale Secondary School and graduated from McMaster University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work in 1971.[8]

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

When Short graduated from McMaster University, he intended to pursue a career in social work; however, he became interested in acting once he was cast in a Toronto production of Godspell that same year.[9] Among other members of that production's cast were Victor Garber, Gilda Radner, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, and Andrea Martin; Paul Shaffer was the musical director.[10] He was subsequently cast in several television shows and plays, including the drama Fortune and Men's Eyes (1972).[10] He worked solely in Canada through 1979.

In 1979, Short starred in the U.S. sitcom The Associates about a group of young novice lawyers working at a Wall Street law firm. In 1980, he joined the cast of I'm a Big Girl Now, a sitcom starring Diana Canova and Danny Thomas.[11] Canova was offered the sitcom because of her success playing Corinne Tate Flotsky on ABC's Soap and left Soap shortly before Short's newlywed wife Nancy Dolman joined it.

SCTV[edit]

Short was encouraged to pursue comedy by McMaster classmates Eugene Levy and Dave Thomas, whom he joined in the improvisation group The Second City in Edmonton, Alberta in 1977.[9]

Short came to public notice when the group produced a show for television, Second City Television or SCTV, which ran for several years in Canada, then the United States. Short appeared on SCTV in 1982-1983.[9] At SCTV Short developed several characters before moving on to Saturday Night Live for the 1984–1985 season:

Saturday Night Live[edit]

Short joined Saturday Night Live in 1984-1985.[12]

He helped revive the show with his many characters for the show's tenth season (the last one produced by Dick Ebersol). "Short's appearance on SNL helped to review the show's fanbase, which had flagged after the departure of Eddie Murphy, and in turn, would launch his successful career in films and television."[11]

Short's SNL characters included manic man-child and Wheel of Fortune fan Ed Grimley, which he borrowed from his SCTV days. He also did impressions of such celebrities as Jerry Lewis and Katharine Hepburn.[12]

Television[edit]

In addition to his work on SCTV and SNL, Short has starred in several television specials and series of his own. In 1985, Short starred in the one-hour Showtime special, Martin Short: Concert for the North Americas.[13] This was Short's first live concert, interspersed with studio sketches and a wraparound featuring Jackie Rogers Jr. Co-produced by the CBC, this aired as The Martin Short Comedy Special in Canada in March 1986. In 1989, Short headlined another one-hour comedy special, this time for HBO, I, Martin Short, Goes Hollywood, Short's classic send-up of all things Hollywood. It featured many of his characters including: Ed Grimley, Jackie Rogers Jr.[14]

Short has had three television shows called The Martin Short Show, including a sitcom, The Martin Short Show, 1994; a sketch comedy show, The Show Formerly Known as the Martin Short Show, 1995; and a syndicated talk show The Martin Short Show, which ran from 1999 to 2000.[15]

Short starred as Jiminy Glick on Comedy Central's Primetime Glick (2001–03). He interviewed performers and celebrties as the character Jiminy Glick.[16] The character was called "the most unpredictable and hilariously uninhibited comic creation to hit TV since Bart Simpson was in diapers."[17]

In addition to his own series, Short has guest starred on several shows including Arrested Development (episode titled Ready, Aim, Marry Me, 2005), Muppets Tonight (1996),[18] Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Weeds. He joined the FX drama Damages as lawyer Leonard Winstone in 2010.[19]

Short voices the Cat in the Hat in The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! on the Public Broadcasting Service in 2010.[20]

He shot a new comedy special for television in Toronto in September 2011.[21] The special, I, Martin Short, Goes Home follows Martin's return to his native Hamilton, Ontario and has a cast that includes Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Joe Flaherty and Fred Willard. The special aired on CBC Television on April 3, 2012, and garnered Short a nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Program or Series at the 2013 Canadian Screen Awards.

In 2011, Short joined the cast of How I Met Your Mother for its seventh season, playing Marshall Eriksen's manic boss.[22]

He was a judge on the first and only season of Canada's Got Talent (2012).[23]

He, along with Steve Martin and Chevy Chase appeared on an episode of Saturday Night Live as part of the "Five-Timers Club", on March 9, 2013, which was all of the old hosts who have hosted for five or more times on the show. However, Short appeared as a waiter, as he has only hosted twice. Other members included Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd.[24][25]

Film[edit]

After doing sketch comedy for several years, Short focused on film—appearing in ¡Three Amigos!, Innerspace, The Big Picture, Captain Ron, Clifford, Three Fugitives (1989), directed by Francis Veber, with Nick Nolte and James Earl Jones, the 1991 remake of Father of the Bride, and its sequel, and in Pure Luck (1991), directed by Nadia Tass, with Danny Glover and Sheila Kelley.[26]

In 1996, he appeared in Tim Burton's sci-fi comedy Mars Attacks![26] as image-obsessed, hormonally driven Press Secretary Jerry Ross. In 1997, he appeared as Wall Street broker Richard Kempster in Jungle 2 Jungle alongside Tim Allen.[27]

In 2004, he wrote and starred in Jiminy Glick in Lalawood with Jan Hooks as his wife, Dixie Glick.[28]

In 2006, he starred in another movie with Tim Allen, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.[29]

Short also provided the voices of several animated film characters, such as Stubbs in We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story (1993), Hubie in The Pebble and the Penguin (1995), Huy in The Prince of Egypt (1998) (alongside Steve Martin as Hotep), Ooblar in Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (2001), B.E.N. in Treasure Planet (2002),Thimbletack the Brownie in The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008), and Stefano the sea lion in Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted (2012).[26][30]

On August 31, 2007, he appeared as the new host of O Canada!, a Circle-Vision 360° film premiering at Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park.[citation needed]

Stage[edit]

Short resumed work in the theater, playing a lead role in the 1993 musical version of the Neil Simon film The Goodbye Girl, on Broadway, receiving a Tony Award nomination and an Outer Critics Circle Award.[31][32][33]

He had the lead role in the 1999 Broadway revival of the musical Little Me, for which he received a Tony Award and another Outer Critics Circle Award.[34][35][36]

In 2003, Short took to the stage once again in the critically acclaimed Los Angeles run of The Producers. Short played the role of the accountant, Leo Bloom, opposite Jason Alexander's Max Bialystock.[37][38] Although the role of Leo Bloom was originated on Broadway by Matthew Broderick, Mel Brooks first approached Short about doing the part opposite Nathan Lane.[39] On the subject, Short has stated in numerous interviews that, while he was thrilled by the opportunity, the idea of having to move his family from their Los Angeles home to New York for a year was less than ideal and ultimately proved a deal-breaker.

Short performed in his satirical one-man show, with a cast of six, Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Broadway. The show toured several cities in the spring of 2006, prior to opening on Broadway in August 2006; the show closed in January 2007. In it, he performed his classic characters Grimley, Cohen, and Glick.[40][41][42][43]

As Glick, Short brought a member of the audience (usually a celebrity) on stage and interviewed him or her. Jerry Seinfeld was the guest on opening night. The show also featured parodies of many celebrities including Celine Dion, Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Tommy Tune, Joan Rivers, Britney Spears, Ellen DeGeneres, Renée Zellweger, Jodie Foster, Rachael Ray, and Short's wife, actress Nancy Dolman. The cast album was released on April 10, 2007, and is available from Ghostlight Records, an imprint of Sh-K-Boom Records.[44]

Short has continued to tour in his one-man show, which features many of his best-loved characters and sketches.[45] In addition to Fame Becomes Me, some of the titles Short has used for his one-man show include Stroke Me Lady Fame, If I'd Saved, I Wouldn't Be Here, and Sunday in the Park with George Michael.[46]

Short revealed in March 2011 that he plans to write a memoir, covering his 40 year career in show business.[21]

Personal life[edit]

Family[edit]

Short met Canadian comic actress Nancy Dolman in 1972 during the run of Godspell. The couple married in 1980. Dolman retired from show business in 1985 to be a stay-at-home mom[47] and raise her family. Nancy Dolman Short died on August 21, 2010, from ovarian cancer.[48] Short and Dolman have three children: Katherine (1983), Oliver (1986), and Henry (1989). [49]

Short and his family make their home in Pacific Palisades, California. Short also has a home on Lake Rosseau in Ontario.[50] He is a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Short has two stars on Canada's Walk of Fame.[51] His brother Michael Short is a comedy writer and twice winner of the Emmy Award for comedy sketch writing.

Extended family[edit]

Dolman's brother, screenwriter/director Bob Dolman (who served as a part of SCTV's Emmy-winning writing team alongside Short), married their close friend and colleague Andrea Martin, also in 1980. Dolman and Short are aunt and uncle to the couple's two sons, Jack and Joe. Dolman and Martin have since divorced.[52]

Short is a first cousin of Clare Short, a former member of the British Parliament and former British cabinet minister.[53]

Philanthropy[edit]

Short has actively campaigned for the Women's Research Cancer Fund, and he accepted a "Courage Award" on behalf of his late wife, who succumbed to the disease in 2010, at a 2011 gala by the group.[54]
