    NIAGARA FALLS, ON, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - Canadian comedy legend Martin Short and
American pop pioneer Bobby Vinton will return to Fallsview Casino Resort for
two performances each as part of the resort's entertainment line-up for April
    Short established his reputation as a sketch-comedy genius on SCTV and
Saturday Night Live, inventing classic characters like Ed Grimley and Jiminy
Glick and mastering impersonations of stars as diverse and Jerry Lewis and
Katherine Hepburn. He has also starred in a string of hit movies, including
Three Amigos and Father of the Bride and several successful Broadway shows.
    When Vinton burst onto the music scene with his hit "Roses are Red" in
