Demetri Martin Has A Show

I first saw Demetri at the UCB Theatre in New York in 2004. I still think of it as one of the most original and hilarious live shows I have ever seen in my entire life. He has stayed relatively obscure and relegated to the favorite lists of comedy dorks and industry types.  He had a stint on The Daily Show where he covered trends, like Myspace and Drinking wine, offering such suggestions as "If you are going to eat red meat, drink red wine. If you are going to eat fish, drink white wine. And if you are a vegan, you are annoying." It’s the subtle play on words and Mitch Hedburg style of irony that makes him so good at what he does. But in a world where Dane Cook and Carlos Mencia are some of the most popular comics, will Demetri ever have mass appeal? Decide for yourself, Wed Feb 11th at 1030. A few more videos after the jump.
