Martin Short to Perform at Gallo Center, 11/23

Among Short's memorable characters are the nerdy Ed Grimley, nervous lawyer Nathan Thurm and "legendary songwriter" Irving Cohen.

His show at the Gallo Center will include an appearance by Glick interviewing Modesto native Robert Ulrich, the Emmy-winning casting director for "Glee" and other television programs.
Short's popularity on television led him to such feature films as "Three Amigos," "Inner Space," "Three Fugitives," and Tim Burton's "Mars Attacks." One of his most memorable roles was in the remake of "Father of the Bride," as Franck the wedding planner. Short's acting accomplishments have earned him an Emmy, a Tony and an Outer Critics Circle Award.
