Short Is In

Gather ’round, young people, and we’ll tell you a story. Our protagonist is Martin Short. You might remember Short from such seminal roles as Ned Nederlander in ¡Three Amigos! or Franck Eggelhoffer from Father of the Bride. No? Come on! Franck, the wedding planner? “The chipper chicken”? Still no? Well, the point of the story — excepting the short-lived Ed Grimley cartoon in the ’80s and the Juminy Glick period — is that Martin Short is funny! Don’t believe us? Good... the plot thickens. Witness for yourself (sure, now you’re part of the story!) when Short performs standup at 8 p.m. Monday at Hard Rock Live (5747 Seminole Way, Hollywood).

Tickets cost $39, $49, or $59 and can be purchased at the box office or through Call 866-502-PLAY, or visit

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
