BEHIND THE SCENES: George in Martin Short’s Upcoming Special
April 1, 2012
submit to reddit

What's it like for one of Canada's comedy legends to return home? Martin Short's new one-hour special, 'I, Martin Short, Goes Home' (a nominal sequel to 'I, Martin Short, Goes Hollywood') answers that very question, with guest spots from some other well-known Canadian entertainers, including fellow SCTV alums Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin.

One other special guest? Our very own George Stroumboulopoulos. He and Martin took a little ride together...

The special airs on CBC Television on April 3rd at 9pm (9:30 NT).

When Martin and George were filming their scenes together, we got a little footage of the two of them wrapping up George's stuff - along with Zaib Shaikh. Check it out below:
