    Martin Short's eccentric, character-driven work on Saturday Night Live (as Ed Grimley and Jackie Rogers Jr.), Comedy Central (Jiminy Glick), and the big screen (CLIFFORD, THE THREE AMIGOS) speaks to his remarkable versatility as a comedic actor. His one-man show, FAME BECOMES ME, dots and crosses the proverbial i's and t's, though, and shows Short to be an ambitious comedic genius. This companion disc to the Broadway musical of the same name traces Short's entire life while poking fun at showbiz, musicals, celebrity ego, and the whole concept of the one-man show itself (there are actually six people in the cast). This is a delightful, face-paced, quick-witted show that should appeal to fans of musical theater and Martin Short alike.
