NIAGARA FALLS, ON, Jan. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - There is funny, and then there
is fall-off-your-seat hilarious. The illustrious careers of comedy
giants Steve Martin and Martin Short unite on stage at Fallsview Casino for two nights as part of Fallsview
Casino's April live entertainment.
"It's a huge opportunity to bring two of the biggest names in comedy to
our stage," said Cathy Price, Vice President of Marketing with
Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara. "Their unique style of
comedy connects with audiences of all ages, and their natural tact for
entertaining is a great extension of our brand experience."
Fallsview audiences will receive a double whammy of laughs when Steve
Martin and Martin Short engage together in "A Very Stupid
Conversation". Appearing with the Steep Canyon Rangers, the two
comic-actor friends present a unique blend of entertainment that
includes an interview-format conversation, pithy one-liners, singing,
banjo playing and film clips, all the while recalling their respective
careers and creative influences.
Leading off the lineup is the return of Legends in Concert, the ultimate live celebrity tribute show featuring the greatest
collection of celebrity look-alikes in the industry.
Rock 'n' Roll royalty, six-time JUNO Award-winner Burton Cummings, known for hits like "These Eyes" and "American Woman", takes the stage
