One of Second City Toronto’s most famous exports, Martin Short joined the company in 1977 in the excellently titled revue show The Wizard of Ossington. After successful stints on both SCTV and SNL, Hollywood beckoned and Innerspace, a high-concept hybrid of sci-fi, action and comedy, was his second big studio film following Three Amigos. Starring alongside Dennis Quaid, Short is hugely entertaining in a role that allows him to engage in a wildly physical and wonderfully expressive comedy performance.
