Martin Short & Robert Klein Set to Attend Johnny Carson Tribute Festival
Martin Short and Robert Klein will be taking part in the 10th Great American Comedy Festival.
The festival, which pays tribute to the late Johnny Carson, will mark the 25th year since he stepped down as the host of “The Tonight Show.” It kicks off on June 14 in his hometown of Norfolk, Nebraska.
Klein will be honored with the Johnny Carson Comedy Legend Award, while Short will be the festival's top headliner. The festival's executive director, Lori Williams, said in a statement, "We're thrilled to have both of them coming to Norfolk. But we're also excited to have eight of our nine professional stand-up winners from past festivals returning, as well as several headliners from past festivals. It's a lineup like we've never seen before in Norfolk.”
