Maya Rudolph Reveals Why Her Name Comes First in 'Maya & Marty'

Maya Rudolph is explaining why her name got to be first in the title of her upcoming variety show Maya & Marty, which co-stars Martin Short.

The Saturday Night Live alum told Entertainment Weekly that Martin came up with the title and she “kept her mouth shut.”

“My whole life I’ve known him as Martin Short, but when you get to know him he’s Marty, and Marty is a warm welcome as a name,” Maya said. “I felt like it ended there to let you know this is your buddy. Marty is letting you know what you’re in for.”
