From writing for Late Night with Conan O’Brien to performing regularly on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, through multiple albums, books, a TV series, a film, and the recent Netflix hit comedy special "The Overthinker," Demetri Martin's style of stand-up comedy is no laughing matter. Or perhaps it is.
Demetri Martin is a stand-up comedian, artist, writer, and director. He won the Perrier Award at the International Fringe Festival in Edinburgh for his one-man show, "If I." At the Melbourne International Comedy festival, his show "Dr. Earnest Parrot Presents Demetri Martin" won Australia’s Barry Award. Demetri has released three stand-up comedy albums and four hour-long standup comedy specials, including his latest for Netflix, "The Overthinker."
Demetri created and starred in his own television series for Comedy Central called Important Things with Demetri Martin. His books, This Is a Book and Point Your Face at This, are New York Times Bestsellers. His latest book, If It’s Not Funny It’s Art, features a collection of his original drawings. Demetri’s fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, and The New York Times Magazine. He recently wrote and directed his first feature film, Dean, which won the Founder’s Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival for best narrative American feature film.
