Demetri Martin is a Very Important Award-Winning Comedian, so
spends a lot of his time travelling around, with a notebook,
filling it with jokes and incredibly long palindromes (over
500-words long, in fact).
Demetri Martin is an award-winning comedian, known for his show Important Things with Demetri Martin, as well as his stand-up comedy routines and contributions to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Also, he is a person. He has brown hair and is allergic to peanuts.
Embodies the essence of Demetri's comedy to perfection, which is a
good thing since he wrote it. Silly but incredibly smart -- Will
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.
