#Fact
1 He is known to be a popular private man.
2 Before he had a successful career in comedy, he used to work with Danny Thomas.
3 Martin's father was born in Crossmaglen, County Armagh in Northern Ireland.
4 Shares the same birthday with and is friends with Vicki Lawrence.
5 Pictured on one of a set of five nondenominated Canadian commemorative postage stamps honoring Great Canadian Comedians, issued 29 August 2014. In addition to the main portrait, he is shown as his characters Ed Grimley, Jiminy Glick, and Jackie Rogers Jr. Others honored in this set are Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Catherine O'Hara, and Oliver Guimond. Price of each stamp on day of issue was 85¢.
6 Opened his one man show (with a full cast of six), Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Broadway on August 17th. He had been enjoying a successful preview run since July 29th, 2006. [August 2006]
7 Rehearsing to play Leo Bloom in The Producers at Pantages Theatre in LA beginning May 2. [March 2003]
8 First cousin of British politician Clare Short.
9 In May 2012, while appearing on the "Today" Show, host Kathie Gifford asked Martin Short several questions about his marriage to his wife, Nancy, in the present tense, indicating that she had no idea that Nancy had died two years earlier. After Short's segment was over, Gifford reappeared to apologize for not knowing about the death and the whole line of questioning.
10 His wife, actress Nancy Dolman, passed away from cancer on August 21st, 2010. She had been battling the disease since 2007.
11 Was nominated for the 2007 Tony Award for supporting or featured actor in a musical for Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me.
12 He was awarded the C.M. (Member of the Order of Canada) on April 13, 1994 for his services to entertainment.
13 In Pure Luck (1991) Proctor's (Short) violent, allergic reaction to bee stings influenced the make-up idea behind Primetime Glick (2001).
14 Owns a luxury vacation home in the affluent Ontario area of Muskoka, along with friends Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw.
15 In the fall of 1980, Short joined the cast of I'm a Big Girl Now (1980), a sitcom vehicle for Diana Canova that also starred Danny Thomas. Canova was offered the sitcom after her huge success playing Corinne Tate Flotsky on ABC's Soap (1977). She left the cast of the latter show in order to accept the offer - shortly before Short's newlywed wife, Nancy Dolman, joined the cast. I'm a Big Girl Now (1980) was an instant flop, and ratings declined for Soap (1977), causing both shows to be canceled that season.
16 He was Mel Brooks' first choice to star opposite Nathan Lane as Leo Bloom in his Broadway version of "The Producers". In 2000 Short was hosting his short-lived talk show, The Martin Short Show (1999), and Brooks and Lane appeared as guests on the same episode--during which, sitting between Lane and Short, Brooks pulled out the contract for "The Producers", wanting them both to sign it right there. This was met with gales of surprised and flattered laughter from the two actors. Having professional obligations on the West Coast due to the talk show, as well as family obligations (he had three children enrolled in school in the Los Angeles area at the time) Short had to decline, and was visibly guilty as he told Brooks he couldn't sign at that moment and would consider the offer later. Lane helped the situation by doing the same. While Lane later accepted, Short declined and Matthew Broderick took his place (earning a Tony Award nomination). Short wound up enjoying a successful run opposite Jason Alexander in the Los Angeles production of "The Producers" in 2003.
17 Son Oliver Patrick Short currently attends The University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business for marketing and film, television and theatre. He is an aspiring director/producer.
18 Daughter Katherine Elizabeth Short currently attends New York University. She was chosen in 2003 to serve as Queen Shenandoah LXXVI for the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester, Virginia. She is an aspiring actress.
19 Short is the youngest of five children. In addition to his two aforementioned brothers, the late David Short and Emmy winning television writer Michael Short, Short has an older brother Brian, vice president of Dover Industries in Canada, and an older sister Nora, an anesthesiologist.
20 Husband of Canadian comic actress Nancy Dolman, most notable for her recurring role on the ABC cult sitcom Soap (1977) and Custard Pie (1977). She also appeared in his critically acclaimed 1985 television special, Martin Short: Concert for the North Americas (1985).
21 Uncle to Bob Dolman's and Andrea Martin's two sons, Jack Dolman (born 1981) and Joe Dolman (born 1983).
22 Won Broadway's 1999 Tony Award as best actor (musical) for a revival of Little Me. He was also nominated in the same category in 1993 for The Goodbye Girl.
23 Is one of very few former Saturday Night Live (1975) cast members to make guest appearances on the rival Saturday night sketch comedy show MADtv (1995) .
24 Has three children: Katherine Elizabeth (born December 3rd, 1983), Oliver Patrick (born 1986) and Henry (born 1990)
25 Older brother David was killed in a car accident in 1962. His mother, Olive Grace (Hayter) Short, who was of English and Irish descent, was a child prodigy of the violin, and the first female concert-mistress in North America. She was concert-mistress for the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. She married Short's father, Charles Patrick Short, in 1935 - an Irish VP of Canada's largest steel company who came to North America as a stowaway. Olive Short died in 1968 after a five-year battle with cancer. Charles Patrick Short died in 1970 as a result of complications from a stroke.
26 Majored in social work at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario after beginning as a pre-med student and then studying sociology.
27 Met future Second City collaborator Dave Thomas in college in 1970 where they began acting together. Short appeared with Thomas in a production of "MacBeth" with Short as Lennox and Thomas as Banquo. A legendary production of "Godspell" in 1972 would include Thomas, plus other funsters Gilda Radner, Eugene Levy, Paul Shaffer and Andrea Martin. His future wife Nancy Dolman was Radner's understudy. Short first dated Radner and then began dating Dolman in 1974. They married in 1980.
28 First acting job was playing a giant Visa card in a TV commercial.
29 Went dramatic and appeared in a 1974 production of "Fortune and Men's Eyes" which dealt with prison rape.
30 Brother of Michael Short
31 On Inside the Actors Studio (1994), said his favorite curse word is "poo".
32 Was supposed to host the 1994 season premiere of Saturday Night Live (1975), but he had to back out at the last minute. He was replaced by Steve Martin.

#Quote
1 I don't really tour. I'll do three show here, three shows there. I like to not go too long not being in front of an audience. It's like the Tin Man in 'The Wizard of Oz' not being oiled. The more you don't do something, the rustier you become. If you do a show once a year, you're going to walk out there and just worry about lines.
2 I don't work in anxiety. I don't work in stress. If someone's a prick, I have the person removed or I leave. The end result is a little less important than the joy of doing it. The one thing you can control is the hang - who are you going to work with, and is it going to be fun.
3 I think that we and the audience make a deal with the funny people we've known for a long time. Our deal is they make us laugh. I can sing. I've done Broadway shows. I can come on Dave Letterman's show and just sing a medley of songs. I can go as sincere as I want. But you'd always be waiting for the sandbag to fall on my head.
4 [on appearing on Bill Maher's current events program] That's a tricky show to do. If you go there and just try to be funny, then you're not doing the show correctly. But you're also competing with a former congressman, a financial specialist from CNBC. You've got to figure out what your turf is and you have to have a little bit of passion about politics and what's in the news.
5 [observation, 2013] The thing that I try to avoid is anything that is long-term - a long run of something, a long tour of something, involvement in a sitcom that requires me showing up every week. I'm 62 now. I've been doing this for forty years, and what's appealing to me is making it very eclectic. It keeps me more interested than just doing one thing.
6 (on Canada's Got Talent (2012))It's the return of variety entertainment, like the The Ed Sullivan Show (1948) (aka "Ed Sullivan Show"). You never get bored. You have to appreciate what they do. But we do see the delusional - the ones who think they kill because they practised singing into the hairbrush in the bathroom. But I have no trouble dealing with attitude. I have three children and when I get that certain tone in my voice, they know it's time to listen.
7 [on being asked what judging capabilities he brings to Canada's Got Talent (2012)] My own unique, kind of subtle brilliance, coated with modesty.
8 [In 2000] I truly believe that when you're funny, you're blessed. Your whole life is kind of golden. I was happy, although it was not perfect happiness. There was illness and sadness and death.
9 [on his 2006 Broadway show "Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me"] This is satire. I am a satirist. Modern-day society has this obsession with needing to know every ounce of angst about performers' lives, to the point that it becomes more important than whether they can perform.
10 [in 2000] I'm totally aware of how lucky I am. I have health, family, children. I do work that gives me total joy and allows me to make a living, and maybe, if I'm lucky enough, I'll feel I've fulfilled a little bit of service to society because I brought other people some laughter.
11 [asked why he remains in show business] Two words, sweetie: balloon mortgage. And the need to be loved.
12 What's great about being a character actor is you know that you can survive forever. It's not about the gloss of your eyebrows . . One of my great influences was Don Knotts as Barney Fife."
