Legendary standup comedians and actors who both star in the hit TV series Only Murders in the Building, Steven Martin and Martin Short are coming to the Turning Stone Event Center on Sunday, November 12.

They will be performing their “You Won’t Believe What They Look Like Today!” show that redefines the form in unexpected and profound ways, from two of the funniest, most influential, and acclaimed talents of the past century. Guests must be 18+ years old.

“A historic anniversary deserves a historic lineup of entertainment for our guests,” said Ray Halbritter, Oneida Indian Nation Representative, and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO. “The biggest entertainers in the world will be performing at Turning Stone this year as we celebrate our ‘Next 30’ anniversary and look forward to even bigger and better things to come.”

Touring together since 2015, Martin and Short’s chemistry and timing on stage reflect a friendship forged over three decades which developed when they met for the first time on the set of the 1986 film “Three Amigos.” 

Their humor is often subversive, but it is always a joyous self-deprecating romp from two comedy masters driven to make each other laugh as much as the audience.
