Stand-up comedian. Actor. Writer. Person. Demetri Martin is all these things; and more. Known primarily for his televised stand-up specials and his Comedy Central show, Important Things with Demetri Martin, deadpan comedian Demetri Martin has brought a breath of fresh air into the world of comedy. A Yale graduate and former Clinton White House intern (not that one), Martin interjects both intellectual and ridiculously simplistic humor into everything he does. While his acting career is quickly growing, Demetri Martin still finds time to perform live stand-up; including a short tour in 2011. After dropping out of New York University School of Law in the late 90s, Demetri Martin pursued a career in stand-up comedy and toured around NYC. He appeared on Premium Blend in 2001, followed the next year by a small role in Analyze That. A 2003 tour date took him to the 2003 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he won the Perrier Award for his one-man show, If I. The show was turned into a special for British television in 2004; the same year Martin received his first Comedy Central Presents stand-up special. Demetri Martin continued to tour the country, with some of his performances being compiled into the 2006 gold certified comedy album, These Are Jokes. The album and Martin's previous Comedy Central special led to another Comedy Central Presents stand-up up extravaganza titled Demetri Martin. Person. The special's success led to higher profile stand-up tours and movie roles, including his own show on Comedy Central in 2009. Important Things with Demetri Martin ran for two seasons and featured many of the routines and unorthodox bits that appear in his televised stand-up specials. Martin recently released his first book, This Is a Book, and is continuing to tour and develop films. Demetri Marin has only a handful of dates on his stand-up tour in 2011, with the latter half of July spent in Southern California. At the end of July, Martin will take a brief break before picking up the tour again in September.
