A prep party — Steve Martin, Martin Short & Tom Hanks throw colonoscopy party

Ahead of their colonoscopies, Steve Martin, Martin Short and Tom Hanks get together every other year to throw a colonoscopy party, Page Six reports.

Mr. Martin and Mr. Short were on Jimmy Kimmel Live! June 19, discussing their colonoscopy parties.

Mr. Martin said, "We thought, everybody at our age…at a certain age, you want to get a colonoscopy. We all came over, we played poker and we watched some funny movie and you drink all this stuff."

Mr. Short joked that the trio refer to it as 'colonoscopy eve' and that they cater in jello.

The one downside to the party is Mr. Martin's lack of available facilities.

"What's shocking is with Steve, you know, he's a wealthy man. Who would think he would have one bathroom?" Mr. Short said. "I mean by 10 p.m., the bathroom looks like day 14 of a Carnival Cruise."

The day of their procedure, the group plays cards on the way to the healthcare center, and whoever loses gets to go last.
