Ontario-born comedian Martin Short shared a night of fun with his 22-year-old daughter Katherine this week when he joined a host of fellow funnymen in a Broadway benefit.
The father of three was participating in the appropriately named Night Of Too Many Stars in New York, alongside fellow Canadian Mike Myers, Will Ferrell, Jack Black and Elvis Costello, to help raise money for autism education.
And the evening, which was hosted by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart and broadcast on TV, was likely to have been especially interesting for the comedian's eldest child, as Katherine apparently has her sights set on Broadway, too. The multi-talented youngster, who plays the piano and writes her own music, has said she'd also like to appeat in the Big Apple's legendary theatre district.
Martin, meanwhile, has already made his mark on the famed theatre strip, having starred there since mid-August in the offbeat hit musical Fame Becomes Me - which he co-wrote. An added bonus to Martin's New York sojourn is that father and daughter have been able to enjoy some quality time together, as Katherine is a student at New York University.
It looks like the Tony Award-winner may soon be returning to his Canadian homeland, however. He's in negotiations to star alongside Mary-Louise Parker and Nick Nolte in a big-budget adaptation of The Spiderwick Chronicles, set to be lensed in Montreal. Before that he'll be back on North American screens in The Santa Clause 3, sharing the screen with Tim Allen and Ann Margaret.
