Most recently he was the spokesperson for the launch of Microsoft Windows Vista.

Immensely likable comedian, and a terrific show! Sep 05, 2007
By Ethan D. Van Sciver
Demetri Martin's low-key, child-like comedy is an awful lot of fun to watch. One part Zach Galifianakis, one part Mitch Hedburg and with a dash of early Pee Wee Herman on Ritalin, Demetri performs as though he's a talented but strange kid putting on a show for his parents. Through stand up ("I like to stand around ATMs, wait until someone punches in their PIN number and say, 'Got it!" and run away."), odd train of thought music, graphs and pie charts of observations he's made ("This graph represents how cute a girl is vs. how long I'll listen to her talk about how intuitive her cat is..."), "Art", and even some animation, it's laugh out loud hilarious and worth watching twice.
Criticism? The stage play of "Where my comedy goes" could have been cut, or at least cut down. It's amusing, but goes on a bit too long, hence, I give the DVD 4 instead of 5 stars. An excellent show by perhaps the next superstar comic!

Hysterical! Nov 14, 2007
By Kurt L. Leiker
Demetri Martin is an extremely funny young comic who doesn't need the rants, raves, and fast-paced nonsense that other comics use in their acts. Demetri creates big laughs from a look or short quip. His comedy enlists the audience member to think, not just react to some wild provocation. He fills the niche of subtle humor not tapped enough in this fast=paced world. He is fantastic.

My ability to draw trees over time Feb 19, 2008
By A. T. Goddard
"...can't stop reading.."
I saw Demetri Martin on a comedy central stand-up and my husband and I thought he was hilarious so we bought his DVD. We are so glad we did because this dvd was worth every cent!!!
Martin is absolutely hilarious! He is one of those rare artists who do not use profanity and sexuality for a laugh. Instead is comedy is based on pointing out the obvious but making it funny! He uses charts and graphs that he drew himself, a piano and harmonica, and a guitar. The "finale" has people acting out what he is saying in the background. An absolute riot!!!
DEF worth the purchase. Loved it!

Very original humour Apr 21, 2011
Demitri Martin epitomises originality in humour. He is an observation-based comic but never makes you feel that he thinks you are stupid or ignorant, he just takes you along on his journey through finding us (everyone) and what we do funny. He is somehow more sincere and less derogatory than other observational comics. I recommend him highly, this DVD is worth every cent!

Intriguing Mar 03, 2008
By The Phantom
Martin is something different for those who like off-beat standup comedy. Don't expect a lot of belly laughs, but instead a more subdued, goofy comedy that appeals to quirky and intelligent types. The artwork sketches, done by Martin himself, are the strongest elements.
If you like guys like Jim Carrey, Martin Lawrence or Carlos Mencia...forget this and look for something else. You won't "get" it.
