Video: High-Flying Martin Short Serenades Late Show Audience

Martin Short just raised the bar on how to make an entrance.

On Thursday’s Late Show with David Letterman, the funnyman/Mulaney survivor came swooping in from the rafters, parodying the classic Frank Sinatra ditty, “Fly Me To The Moon,” with the aptly titled “Fly Me Through the Room.” Afterwards, Letterman insisted that his friend receive a standing ovation.

That appearance marked Short’s record-setting 29th appearance on The Late Show, and 42nd overall sit-down with the longtime host. (Prior to Letterman’s CBS run, Short appeared 13 times on NBC’s Late Night With David Letterman between 1982 and 1993.) It is unknown if he will “swing” by again before Letterman signs off on May 20.

Short can next be seen as a guest on the SNL 40th Anniversary special, airing Sunday, Feb. 15.

    To whom it may concern,

    Please refrain from mentioning that Mr. Short is in Mulaney. I’m sure you understand. Thank you.

    Yours truly,

    Martin Short’s image handlers

    Cannot stand Martin Short. I can’t think of any other performer who thinks and asks like he is so much a “legend” and really isn’t.

      He absolutely killed Hollywood Game Night for me. I get that one of the points is for the guests to grab attention, but he went from a legend to a hyperactive toddler in about 3 minutes.
