He first gained prominence as a writer and performer on the legendary Canadian skit-comedy series “SCTV” before moving on to “SNL” for the 1984-85 season. Short’s TV resume is filled with memorable comedic roles and on the big screen, Short has co-starred in such iconic comedies as the “Father of the Bride” franchise and “Three Amigos.”
