    Demetri Martin: Important Things

    I would say that I am a pretty big fan of Demetri Martin. I have always enjoyed his sketches and Comedy Central. I have been DVRing and watching his new show on Comedy Central called Important Things. I think it is a pretty funny show, it's just different to see him do some sketch comedy. Well I guess a lot of his comedy is "sketch" comedy when he uses a giant white pad.

    I would just like to know what everyone's thoughts on the show were.

    I haven't watched the show, but did see that he recently wrote a pretty cool, 224-word palindrome poem:

    Re: Demetri Martin: Important Things

    I love his new show.

    The funniest thing he's ever done, though, in my book, was from his standup special on Comedy Central.

    he had a drawing of a big circle on his pad and said "this is a pie chart about procrastination". Hilarious.

    I enjoy the bit about the states and their shapes. Especially since I live in Wyoming now.

    I have last nights on DVR as I went to bed before it came on.

    The other week when they had the guy way too early for a rave, had me rolling on the floor.

    Re: Demetri Martin: Important Things

    I have not watched this week's episode yet, but I DVR it. I think it's great. I also like that H. John Benjamin is in almost every episode. That guy is one of the funniest men in America, and very few people would regognize him.

    "Me, angry rapper. You, english language"

    That one cracked me up. He's ok, I think. His stand up was awesome, but I'm not sure if he's going to be able to keep a weekly show going...
