Dude of the Week

Demetri Martin.

you may have caught his new weekly show show this past weds on Comedy Central called "Important Things with Demetri Martin", or you may have seen him doing correspondence for The Daily Show, OR you may have seen his half hour special "Person" a year or so ago. Demetri Martin is the dude of the week simply because he's a genius.

Though I don't know his IQ number, I do know that this dude went to Yale and studied to be a lawyer until his comedic call came through. He's ambidextrous and his favorite past time is also to create palindromes...so we all know he's totally smart...

But its the way his jokes are presented that makes this beautiful 30 year old so great. Monotone and dead pan, he takes you on a journey pointing out life's little ironies that we've all thought about from time to time.

"It's very easy to turn a toy into an adult toy: Location, location, location."

Here's a quick glimpse at a behind the scenes take from "Important Things" and stay tuned for an all new episode Wednesday on Comedy Central
