Product Description

A unique talent, Demetri Martin is one of the hottest stand-up comics working today. His new one-hour special, Demetri Martin. Person. comes to DVD September 4th. Inventive and insightful, this top-rated program brings the funny in ways you’ve never seen. The DVD comes stacked with bonus content including his Comedy Central Presents special, deleted scenes, commentary with his grandma, a tiny poster and more!

Amazon.com

Most stand-up comedians stand around and tell jokes. In Demetri Martin's Comedy Central special Person., taped live at Austin's Paramount Theater, the sneaker-sporting performer draws, sings, plays instruments, and, yes, tells jokes. There are even a few animated interludes. So, you get more bang for your buck than just a guy, a stage, and a bevy of zingers. For those unfamiliar with his work, Martin's specialty is observational humor in the vein of Steven Wright, i.e. "How fast does a zebra have to run before it looks grey?" and "I saw a transvestite wearing a shirt that said Guess." Some bits are laugh-out-loud funny, while others are more thought-provoking (aside from stints on The Daily Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Martin is a former law school student). Topics include weird handshakes, heavy doors, and Hummer owners--you know, everyday stuff. The extras are in keeping with his down-to-earth persona. The commentary track includes the comedian, his mother, his grandmother, his sister, and his uncles (three of whom appear in the skit at the end). Suffice to say, his family isn't big on ego-stroking. "Not for me," his grandmother says, dismissing Martin's whimsical animations. The DVD also includes his installment of Comedy Central Presents, deleted scenes, and a glimpse at some early gigs. Throughout, there's a sprinkling of profanity, but Martin generally avoids sexist and/or mean-spirited material. Person. is for comedy fans who prefer indie pop to corporate rock. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Format: DVD
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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

This is one of the funniest comedy stand ups I have ever seen. This guy is very witty and articulate to make for a very intersting story telling type of comedy. It is worth watching over and over again. I would recomend sharing it with as many friends as possible. This guy is a stand up king. Very well done.Specials: Comedy Central Stand-Up

Clever and amusing and a lot of fun...specially if you are a dog person!

There is a slightly different version of this floating around Rick's Youtube channel but it doesn't feel as polished as this one.

Not your traditional Comedy Central Stand-up fare, but more like a monologue of a journal entry detailing adventures of the common folk mixing with the royalty. Made me like Hillary for '08 in a way because of the way it made me feel like I knew her a little bit. Don't know if its true in part or in full or in fantasy but it rings authentic in the hands of a skilled storyteller. You may come away feeling Bill's YOUR buddy, too!
