Demitri Martin

Demitri Martin

The last two days, I covered dry humor on television and also in film.  Today, I salute one of my favorite stand-up comedians of dry humor: Demitri Martin.

Demitri delivers almost his entire routines without laughing, while the audience is rolling over so.  (Of course, they're probably a little drunk, too.  More things are funny when you're drunk.)  He tells stories, plays instruments, sings songs, and even draws posters.  Here are a couple of examples to get you by until you can look him up on youtube for yourself.  Enjoy!

I LOVE Demetri Martin! His television show was a little bit of a letdown, but I his normal stand up routines are HILARIOUS!

Dmitri is great. I love his bit about how adding "ladies" to the end of anything can make it sound suggestive. "Help I'm stuck in a well....ladies. Come on in ladies it's just like a hot tub with really high walls"

Demetri Martin is awesome.

"Sort of" is such a harmless thing to say. Sort of. It's just a filler. Sort of - it doesn't really mean anything. But after certain things, sort of means everything. Like after "I love you" or "You're going to live" or "It's a boy.""
