Comedian Demetri Martin Persists In Return To Albany
One of the best things that happened to comedy in recent years was Demetri Martin walking away from a free ride at NYU law school with one year to go for a career in stand-up instead.
During his varied career, Martin has written for Conan O’Brien, appeared as a correspondent on The Daily Show, acted in films like Taking Woodstock, Contagion, and In a World, written two books and recorded five standup special CDs.
Often compared to Mitch Hedberg and Stephen Wright, Martin’s comedy is at once deeply layered and incisive and uproariously basic.
Martin’s latest tour The Persistence of Jokes comes to The Egg in Albany on January 29.
