Tv Season Info
The impressive thing about Important Things with Demetri Martin isn't just how well it translated Martin's stage show; It's like a TV representation of all of Martin's quirks, comedic tics, and his unique brand of obtuseness.
His style is low-tech (and often low-key), with a subtle nod to retro sensibilities ... and it is funny.
The best and most obvious example of his abilities is Comedy Central's short-lived Important Things With Demetri Martin, a multi-faceted showcase for the comedian's minimalistic yet cerebral comedy.
Animation, musical numbers, long-form sketches, commercial parodies and oddball segues suggest that the show's star has a solid writing staff behind him and reveal his knack for ridiculous physical comedy.
Demetri Martin is a comic mind that needs room to roam. Fortunately, that's precisely what this new project -- a studio-stand-up/taped-skits/animated-bits/musical-ditty hybrid -- offers.
It's cerebral -- Martin is a full-bore nerd, a law school dropout who writes palindromes and makes puzzles -- a kind of comedy of semiotics, exploiting the ambiguities and loopholes in words and symbols. (Which is to say, it's a form of philosophy.)
