a notepad and Demetri Martin
I have been a fan of Demetri Martin for years- ever since my hubby and I saw his first stand-up special and scoured youtube for more of his clips. (Yes, we like to think we discovered him.) We faithfully tivo’d Important Things last season, and were excited to learn that it’s coming back next year. But I must say, Demetri Martin is even better in person.
Keep reading to hear more about our night with Demetri Martin!
Neal and I took a little drive to Cleveland to see him a few weeks ago. Demetri began the show by genuinely chatting with the audience and welcoming people who were arriving late. He made fun of some open seats with limited leg room in the front row, which became even funnier when the owners of those seats showed up!
I’ve always appreciated Demetri’s unique style. His jokes are smart, and he doesn’t resort to raunchy innuendos or fart jokes. In fact, almost every joke he told made me laugh out loud. It was delightful.
Demetri played a few songs on the piano, then moved to his signature large notepad, where he showed us graphs of statistics like: ‘the amount a man looks like Jesus’ on the x axis, and ‘the likelihood he has weed’ on the y axis.
He transitioned with one of my favorite lines of the night: “Most dogs don’t like Halloween as much as their owners think they do…” I am so guilty as charged. (see below)
Demetri interviewed his left shoe, who made a few requests in a surprisingly deep voice, then later invited a fan to come play his guitar while he played harmonica.
All night, it seemed that Demetri was on top of his game, and I was in awe of his brilliance. To end the evening, he took requests from the audience for his old material- just like a rock star.
As Neal and I drove home, we uttered single words, like ‘birdhouses’ or ‘ladies,’ and both laughed. A good time was had by all.
Are you a Demetri fan? If you ever have the chance to see him live, do it!
Eric and I love Demetri Martin too! His show is so funny & he is seriously talented. I can’t get over his ambidextrous writing technique! I’m glad you guys got to see him.
Also… he is really really cute!! 🙂
My significant other and I love Demetri Martin! We were extremely disappointed to see that he had no more tour shows this year. There is always next year! Love to all Demetri Martin fans! 🙂
I’ve loved Demetri for a long time, and no one knew who he was! Happy to see someone spreading the love. “I like dolphins.”
I saw Demetri in Denver earlier this year. He is so amazing! I loved when he took requests from the audience. I love his old work best. My favorite was when he had a pad of numbers and on the number “56”. He goes “56, the number of Heinz varieties I’ve never seen before”.
He’s so adorable too! Love! Can you beleive he’s like 37?!?
I adore that man.
i love Demetri Martin! whenever he’s on t.v, i know i’m going to be laughing about something he says for a couple of days after.
As everyone else has said, Demetri Martin is great! I think he’s one of the most intelligent comics out there, and I admire him for that (with bonus points for his stunningly gorgeous hair).
I’ve never gotten the chance to see him perform live (it sounds wonderful!) but I did once randomly run into him at a Borders bookstore in Hollywood. My cousin and I were stalking him around the store for what seemed like forever (is that him? No…waitohmigod it’s totally him!), before we finally got the courage to go up and talk to him, and I can confirm that he is a total sweetie to his fans! He invited us to have coffee with him and his lady-friend, and he was super funny and charming throughout. He even signed us a couple of the most creative, badass autographs I’ve ever recieved (basically making little joke-maps out of our names) on the Peet’s coffee napkins!
All of this is to say that Demetri Martin = best. Best comedian, best dude, best everything.
First of all, I love Demetri Martin. I discovered him from his “comedy central” presents piece, and have loved him and his comedy since. You have no idea how thrilled I was to read this blog just now…Secondly, (directed to Hayley), I laughed out loud at your story. That is so funny, I wish I could meet him, especially if I just ran into him at borders and then had coffee!!
Hayley, that is an amazing story!! Thank you for sharing =)
Everyone, I’m so glad to see there are so many ModLife blog-reading Demetri fans!!
Me and my boyfriend like to think we discovered “flight of the conchords” and when demetri martin made a debut on one of their shows we liked to think we discovered him too! but i will withdraw that and say you did =)
SUCH a fan! I’m very jealous you got to see him! I think he’s just hilarious and I can quote him in front of my parents without being embarrassed either so that’s a plus. 🙂
I was so excited when I saw this on here- I adore Demetri Martin- it’s so refreshing to find an intelligent comic who doesn’t need to be loud or obscene to get a laugh (ahemDaneCookahem).
Yay for sharing his awesomeness! =)
