Columbus Short set his sails for entertaining at the tender age of three. He built a ship in his living room out of gym socks and magazines, and said let me entertain you! Let me discover my dynamite body! And my tantalizing twinkle toes! Which was totally possible because his mom ran a talent agency and put him in a bunch of commercials! And the voyage was off! Short graduated high school two weeks early to slay an innocent world with the thunder of his thighs in the Broadway production of Stomp! which quickly led to a stint as choreographer in the glittery waters of Britney Spears’ In The Zone tour. Columbus Short is nothing short of a one man village, he can act, direct, dance, write, and take his shirt off with the best of them. That’s right, this captain of your ship is all things topless as the character August in The Girl is in Trouble (2015). And the skin is so decadent, so filling, so rich, you don’t even need dessert! And you get a four day weekend for the rest of eternity!
