Important Things

One of my favourite comedians stars in a new show starting on Comedy Central this week.

Poster for 'Important Things for Demetri Martin'

I first came across Demetri Martin as his role as a youth correspondent on The Daily Show—a segment in which he was also able to showcase his signature use of self-drawn illustrations, graphs and diagrams in his comedy. One of my favourite in this series, was that on Social Networking:

This coming Wednesday he gets his very own show on Comedy Central: Important Things with Demreti Martin. Looking at the previews, I’m not sure whether his sketch comedy will hold up, but luckily the show contains some of his traditional stand-up too.

Sadly, to the best of my knowledge this show will only air in the US, but I’m hoping that the power of Hulu and a proxy server means I won’t miss out!
