  • He has the Power to make you laugh

    As always Demetri surprise us with his ability to see the funny spot on everything... This time that thing was "POWER". I agree with other reviews in one thing: This topic was more difficult to approach than last week's topic. The show is great, funny, it is worth watching. But it needs more work. This episode is no better than the first one (The first one was good too, but if you have seen Demetri Martin perform before you know what i am talking about). This show is not at Demetri's Level yet and It is a liitle bit silly sometimes, however is very funny.

    I know making a weekly show is very difficult for comedians, but i know Demetri can do it. If you did not like any of the episodes so far you can watch Demetri's TV Special: PERSON. And you will know how funny this guy really is!!moreless
  • Demetri Martin discusses "power".

    Demetri Martin's comedic excellence and this new show may have some legs after all. This second episode was just as strong as the first.

    People asked for more stand-up and we got more, but unfortunately power was not as easy a topic as time to mock. Demetri still had a few clever points, including how letters can be rearranged and the power of saying something while looking outside the window, but the overall topic just wasn't as "important" as last week's.

    The sketches were an improvement as the weak ones were weeded out. There was nothing worthy of watching again on Youtube, but the yellow belt was simple and harmless.

    This show is really refreshing and it has become a must-watch for me on Wednesday.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Demetri: This is a particularly powerful statement: "I hate you" But it becomes even stronger with just a simple principle of removal applied - "I ate you" And then it becomes suddenly weaker with a little more removal, "I ate, yo"

    • Demetri: Bears like honey. So what do we do? We serve honey, out of a bear. We take the honey from the animal that likes it - through a hole in its freaking head. Screw you, bears.

    • Demetri: Man is the most powerful creature on earth. And we're arrogant. I mean, people own birds. It's like, 'There's a creature with the gift of flight - I want it.'
