Martin Short Show

Martin joined Saturday Night Live for the 1984–85 season. He helped revive the show with his many characters for season ten (the last one produced by Dick Ebersol). “His  appearance on SNL helped to revive the show’s fanbase, which had flagged after the departure of Eddie Murphy, and in turn, would launch his successful career in films and television.”  Martin’s  SNL characters included numerous holdovers from his SCTV days, most notably, his Ed Grimley character, depicted on Saturday Night Live as a geeky everyman who finds himself in bizarre situations rather than a miscast bad actor in several film and TV show parodies. Martin’s also did impressions of such celebrities as Jerry Lewis and Katharine Hepburn.
