Steve Martin & Martin Short: “A Very Stupid Conversation”

You read that right, not one but two out of Three Amigos will take the Majestic stage Friday in what’s sure to be a, uh, well we’re not sure what exactly, but anytime the minds behind “King Tut” and Ed Grimley come together in the name of stupidity, it’s sure to be a good time. Both men have changed considerably over the years — Martin’s most recent tours have been with his bluegrass band, the Steep Canyon Rangers (who share the bill here, as well) and Short’s most recent screen appearance was as a coke-snorting dentist in a Paul Thomas Anderson adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel — but, like their Amigo counterparts, Martin and Short are first and foremost entertainers of the old-school comedian-as-renaissance-song-and-dance-man tradition. Things may get very stupid, but they’ll never be dull. Sold out ($107-$369 at stubhub.com), 8pm Fri, The Majestic Theatre, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — Jeremy Martin
