"I keep a lighter in my back pocket all the time. I'm not a smoker, I just really like certain songs..."
"When you have a fat friend there are no see-saws -- only catapults..."
"The worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of charades…"

DEMETRI MARTIN is at the forefront of a new breed of young comics who get laughs with acerbic, relaxed observational humor. He's been called the "voice of Generation Y" and his writing and stand-up work has earned him critical praise. He began his career in comedy when he dropped out of law school. After graduating from Yale College, Demetri headed to NYU School of Law with a full scholarship. When he realized that law school was boring, Demetri started doing stand-up across the street at the Boston Comedy Club in Greenwich Village. Since venturing into comedy, Demetri has appeared on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" and NBC's "Late Friday." He has contributed writing to The Daily Show and written for VH-1's "Don't Quote Me." In addition, he can be seen as an on-camera personality on Showtime's ShoNext channel. Demetri was also the winner of the 2003 Jury Award prize for Best One-Person Show at the Aspen Comedy Festival.
