Reviews

Embodies the essence of Demetri's comedy to perfection, which is a good thing since he wrote it. Silly but incredibly smart -- Will Ferrell
When I first saw Important Things With Demetri Martin, I said to myself, "this is the funniest thing ever." I was wrong. This Is A Book is better -- Malcolm Gladwell, author of 'Outliers'

This Is a Probability. If you like random, short-attention-span riffs built on pithy comic premises, Martin's your man. If you delight in writing that deconstructs comedy even while constructing it, his self-aware style will appeal. And if you relish literary humor, "This Is a Book" is a book for you.
... Because Martin's literary quickies are so consistently clever - and his occasional longer pieces are engaging change-ups - we can conclude that the reader who fancies this brand of wry absurdism and playful labeling will be absolutely entertained from The Front to The Back.

-- Michael Cavna * Washington Post *
Range[s] from the straightforwardly daft - like the killing of a bee told from various different perspectives...to rather beautiful tales, like the account of a man who falls in and out of love with a ghost... like the best of Woody Allen...sure to delight -- James Kettle * Guardian *
A mix of the inspired and the absurd, with an undercurrent of surrealism that still manages to resonate as sincere...One of the most acclaimed and beloved comedians in the US -- Davin O'Dwyer * Irish Times *
