  • -I want to talk about your new

  • You have a new show with Steve Martin?

  • -I do. It's on Hulu.

  • And, you know, what Hulu is doing,

  • which I think is very funny, is going after that coveted

  • 70-to-95-year-old demographic.

  • So, uh...

  • It's called "Only Murders in the Building."

  • And this show is kind of like Steve at the urinal.

  • It streams for 42 minutes.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • Marty, have you talked to Steve at all during the pandemic?

  • -Well, I've certainly talked to him on the phone.

  • I've tried to Zoom with him, but he tends to stand

  • in front of a white wall, and he just blends in,

  • so there's a sense of, you know, chatting with a ghost.

  • -That's tough. You know who is on our show tonight, by the way,

  • is Randy Newman. -Ah, Randy Newman.

  • Randy Newman is a genius

  • and was the cowriter of "Three Amigos."

  • -Yeah.

  • -The "Three Amigos" script was written by Steve Martin,

  • Lorne Michaels, and Randy Newman.

  • And Randy, of course, wrote all the songs.

  • -Do you remember getting that script?

  • Is that the first time you met Steve?

  • -Yes. Um --

  • I was being considered for "Three Amigos," you know --

  • You know, everyone had, you know --

  • Carrot Top had passed.

  • Believe me. I wasn't the first choice.

  • But I remember going to -- I'd never met Steve.

  • And it was --

  • I had just finished a year at "SNL" as a cast member.

  • And I had a one-year contract, so that's --

  • I was now no longer doing the show.

  • And it was May 1985. -Wow.

  • -And I went to his house,

  • his old house on Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills.

  • And -- Beautiful house.

  • But when you went inside,

  • you couldn't believe what you were seeing.

  • I mean, it was just -- Because of the artwork.

  • You know, Steve is a major art collector.

  • -Yeah.

  • -And you'd see a Picasso there and a Hopper there.

  • And I -- The first thing I said to Steve was,

  • "How did you get this rich? Because I've seen your work."

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -And he said to me, "Can you try

  • to get the script to Martin Short, please?"

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -That's really good.

  • Do you remember we were at Steve's house

  • and we were doing a bit?

  • I forget -- I think he was coming on the show or something,

  • so we did a bit where we pretended I got really wasted

  • at the dinner and got in a fight?

  • -Yeah. Yeah. And then there was one shot

  • of you, like, with your shirt off, just screaming at people.

  • And we're like this.

  • And the last shot was you just passed out right on my lap.

  • -[ Laughs ] Yes. Shirtless and passed out.

  • It was like, yeah, we had fun. I think the bit was like,

  • "Yeah, we had a really fun time at the dinner party."

  • -Fun time. I went to Steve Martin's house.

  • I couldn't believe it.

  • -We've had so many fun dinners and fun nights out.

  • Do you remember going to Orso? Did Lorne leave?

  • -We went to -- Yes, it was dinner with John Alexander,

  • Lorne Michaels, you, and me.

  • And then Lorne I guess had to leave to go back to "SNL."

  • -Oh, yeah.

  • -And we had the most hilarious night.

  • And there might have been a cocktail.

  • And then at one point,

  • you and I went downstairs, we were in the bathroom,

  • and then we're down in the hallway

  • down below at Orso, and we're doing dueling Robin Williams.

  • -That's right. We're doing...

  • -[as Robin Williams] "Oh, get down, man!"

  • -Yes, we were both --

  • -And we were so loud that the maître d'

  • finally leaned over and said --

  • He thought we were having a fist fight.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • That was fun.

  • -Do you remember going out with Paul McCartney and Lorne?

  • -Oh, my God, yeah.

  • And then we ended up in the Polo Lounge.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • -Yeah, we sang a song with the piano.

  • -We sang a song at the end.

  • [British accent] Paul -- Paul felt it was

  • one of the great boys' night out.

  • -It was really good.

  • -He's had some good boys' nights out. Yeah.

  • -Do you remember who's -- I'll never forget this.

  • The best bit I've ever seen. We were at --

  • Ah, it's the Italian restaurant. Really delicious. Um...

  • I'm going to forget name of the restaurant now.

  • -With Paul, you mean? -Yeah.

  • -Isn't it Medeo's?

  • -Medeo's. That's exactly right. So we were at Medeo's.

  • And so we're kind of in the corner, and we got

  • Paul in through, like, a different entrance.

  • He came up through an elevator underneath so no one saw him.

  • And so he's kind of sitting there with Lorne in the booth.

  • And it's Paul McCartney. And I'm there.

  • And I think Lee Eastman was there, too,

  • having dinner with us, and so we're just being cool.

  • And you come into the restaurant.

  • It's the best move I've ever seen.

  • And you come in and you go, "Paul, Paul?!

  • Paul?! Lorne?! Lorne! P-Paul McCartney?!"

  • "Over here!" "Ah! Guys! Hi. There you are!"

  • And you were banging the table.

  • -I kept pretending I couldn't see you.

  • -It's a small restaurant. It's the funniest bit.

  • -"Jimmy? Lorne? Paul?"

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • It's like ten tables. You can see --

  • -Ten tables. I know. -It was so well done, man.

  • Martin short, I love you, buddy.

  • I can't wait to see you. Be safe.

-I want to talk about your new
