  • This is probably the best stand-up I've seen on Comedy Central Presents

    Demitri Martin deserves more credit. Most comedians just take the microphone and nothing else and talk for half an hour. There is the occasonial musician. But Demetri Martin is the TRIPLE THREAT. He is funny with just a microphone. He is funny with a guitar and other instruments. He is funny with his drawings. He is probably one of the hardest working comedians. He entertains the people with so many different ways. I wish they would give him another special. Like I said at the beginning, Demtiri Martin deserves more. I also want to see him in person. That would be cool.moreless

    I've always enjoyed this episode the few times that I've seen it. Demetri Martin uses his own unique humor in this episode along with some unique props.

    I love his pictures on his easel that he uses during his stand up routine. Overall, this was an above average episode and is worth watching.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Demetri Martin: If you want to make a mythical creature, just take a regular animal and add wings to it. A horse becomes a pegasus, a lion becomes a griffin, and a hawk... becomes a double hawk. (que card of bird with 4 wings saying 'I'm awkward'.)

    • Demetri Martin: I noticed that there are no b-batteries. I think that's to avoid confusion, cause if there were you wouldn't know if someone was stuttering. 'Yes, hello I'd like some b-batteries.' 'What kind?' 'B-batteries.' 'What kind?!?' 'B-batteries!!!' and D-batteries that's hard for foreigners. 'Yes, I would like de batteries.'

    • Demetri Martin: I wanna make a jigsaw puzzle that's 40,000 pieces. And when you finish it, it says 'go outside.'

    • Demetri Martin: I feel stupid when I write the word banana. Its like, how many na's are on this thing? 'Cause I'm like 'Bana ... keep going. Bananana ... damn.'

    • Demetri Martin: When you have a fat friend there are no see-saws. Only catapults.

    • Demetri Martin: 'Sort of' is such a harmless thing to say. Sort of. It's just a filler. Sort of - it doesn't really mean anything. But after certain things, sort of means everything. Like after 'I love you' or 'You're going to live' or 'It's a boy.'

    • Demetri Martin: I saw a guy at a party wearing a leather jacket and I thought, 'That is cool.' But then I saw another guy wearing a leather vest and I thought, 'That is not cool'. Then I figured it out: 'Cool' is all about leather sleeves. (flips sketch pad to cue card that says "I own leather sleeves")

    • Demetri Martin: I think that when you get dressed in the morning, sometimes you're really making a decision about your behavior for the day. Like if you put on flipflops, you're saying: 'Hope I don't get chased today.' 'Be nice to people in sneakers.'

    • Demetri Martin: I see cards that say 'Get Well Soon.' **** that. Get well now.

    • Demetri: You always hear about the guy raised by wolves, what about the next generation?

    • Demetri: A lollipop is hard candy plus garbage.

    • Demetri: I am less nuturing than a desert.
      Paper on Easel: Ladies, that's not true.

    • Demetri: I carry a lighter with me everywhere. I don't smoke, there are just some songs that I really like.
