Martin Short Hometown: Hamilton, Ontario Politics: In early 2008, Short told the Arizona Daily Star: "I cannot be political. Not that I'm not political, but whenever you do a very political show, unless you are a true political satirist like Bill Maher or Dennis Miller, you end up spouting your own personal views, which alienates half your audience." Records show he donated $1,000 to Hillary Rodham Clinton's U.S. Senate run in 1999.
