These special children will be treated to a day of celebrities, entertainment and stage shows, carnival rides and activities and loads of yummy food and treats. They will also experience Santa’s toy cave filled with thousands of high-quality toys where they will receive 3 or 4 each to take home. We aim pretty high and it is our intention to provide a day that these families will remember and appreciate for years!

Steve Martin and Martin Short – Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t

Steve Martin and Martin Short will bring their critically acclaimed comedy tour Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t for the first time to Australian audiences in November.  This celebrated comedy show redefines the form in unexpected and profound ways, from two of the funniest, most influential and acclaimed talents of the past century.   The duo will be joined on stage by Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers.

Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t follows Steve Martin and Martin Short’s sold-out tour An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life.  The tour was filmed for a Netflix special that earned rave reviews and garnered four Emmy® nominations. Fueled by comedic precision and anchored in a lifelong friendship, Rolling Stone called the special “wryly hip but unexpectedly touching,” with the New York Times describing it “gleeful and satisfying.”

Steve Martin and Martin Short’s humour 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. The jokes come at you at a rapid-fire pace with little set-up and big punch lines as they mock Hollywood and the fickle nature of celebrity, but the comedy truly soars when they lovingly (and relentlessly) roast each other.

Martin and Short’s chemistry and timing on stage reflects a friendship of more than three decades; they met for the first time on the set of the 1986 film Three Amigos.  The comedy icons have been touring together since 2016, when they launched their first live show titled “A Very Stupid Conversation.”

Don’t miss comedy legends Steve Martin and Martin Short! Hurry, this will sell out!
