Steve Martin and Martin Short Eulogize One Another on ‘SNL’ | #entertainment | #news

Steve Martin and Martin Short hosted the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, and the two actors must’ve had only murders on their minds as the two opened the show by rehearsing one another’s eulogies. 

Before they got into the bit and invited their Only Murders in the Building co-star, Selena Gomez, to join them, the comedic pair recounted their past experiences hosting the late-night show. This past Dec. 10 episode marked Martin’s 16th go at hosting SNL and Short’s third.

After flipping through old photos of Martin’s previous gigs as SNL host, Short, ready to prove he’s just as capable as his counterpart, quipped, “You see, we are like Harry and Meghan. No one’s rooting for us, but you’ll tune in to watch anyway,” a reference to Netflix’s new docuseries from the couple.

The former Father of the Bride star quickly shot back, “For me, working with Marty Short is like World Cup soccer–somehow, I just can’t get into it.” 

But it wasn’t all hostility on stage. The two actors reminded fans that they’ve been busy working on Season 3 of the Hulu hit, and Short packed his punches up with a sentimental reminder to Steve, “I adore working with you; I hope we can do this forever.”
