`SIR MARTY’ IS TITLE ENOUGH FOR CANADIAN MARTIN SHORT

SHARE `SIR MARTY’ IS TITLE ENOUGH FOR CANADIAN MARTIN SHORT

Martin Short, the comedic actor, has been tapped for Canada's highest honor: He will be inducted into the Royal Order of Canada in October.

The equivalent of British knighthood, the appointment is a rare distinction. So far, the comedian, who was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, is not letting it go to his head."I will only be Sir Marty to my friends," he said.
