‘An exceptionally reliable comedian, with finely crafted material… an incredibly entertaining show’
★★★★ The Guardian

Demetri Martin is a standup comedian, artist, writer, and director. He began doing standup comedy in New York City, where he worked as a staff writer for Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Demetri then became a regular performer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Demetri won the Perrier Award at the International Fringe Festival in Edinburgh for his one-man show, If I. At the Melbourne International Comedy festival, his show Dr. Earnest Parrot Presents Demetri Martin won Australia’s Barry Award.

Demetri created and starred in his own television series for Comedy Central called Important Things With Demetri Martin. His books, This Is A Book and Point Your Face At This, are New York Times best sellers. His latest book, If It’s Not Funny It’s Art, features a collection of his original drawings. Demetri’s fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, and The New York Times Magazine. He recently wrote and directed his first feature film, Dean, which won the Founder’s Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival for best narrative American feature film.

Using deadpan one-liners, inner monologue, drawings, peppering in music on everything from guitar, keyboard, piano and harmonica to glockenspiel, toy bells, ukulele and tambourine sometimes all at once Demetri Martin is a truly unique voice. Don’t miss him live on stage this May and June. These are his only Australian and New Zealand shows and tickets won’t last long!
