Martin Short, Steve Martin soap opera on Tonight Show

Posted on


Things got tense on The Tonight Show on Thursday night.

Martin Short and Jimmy Fallon reminisced about their days spent shooting the (fake) soap opera Tensions, with Short starring as a be-wigged Joan Collins-esque drama queen who demands to know what is in Fallon’s sandwich. Later, Fallon accuses Short of cheating on him with a man who has been coming around daily for the past six months — see the full sketch below for Steve Martin’s tense entrance.
