This Is a Book | Demetri Martin
15 posts | 15 read | 4 to read
From the renowned comedian, creator, star and executive producer/multiple title-holder of Comedy Central's Important Things with Demetri Martin comes a bold, original, and rectangular kind of humor book. Demetri's first literary foray features longer-form essays and conceptual pieces (such as Protagonists' Hospital, a melodrama about the clinic doctors who treat only the flesh wounds and minor head scratches of Hollywood action heroes), as well as his trademark charts, doodles, drawings, one-liners, and lists (i.e., the world views of optimists, pessimists and contortionists), Martin's material is varied, but his unique voice and brilliant mind will keep readers in stitches from beginning to end.

Book 153

I got and read this book on Christmas. It's a fun collection of humorous jokes, pictures, word play, and short writings, all in true Demetri Martin style. It was mildly enjoyable but not my preferred genre. ⭐⭐⭐

Though not as funny as his stand up, it did make me laugh. It was an easy read, and lighthearted.

It is illegal to yell “fire” in a crowded theater. If there is a fire, please yell something else instead, like “Flames!” or “Smokemaker!” or “Badhot!”

Drunken behavior will not be tolerated, except by those who are being hilarious. Please turn off all cell phones and pagers. And if you have a pager, please return it to the 90‘s.

A know-it-all is a person who knows everything except for how annoying he is.

A collection of essays, quips, quotes and drawings that kind of made me think about how my own brain works, except for not as weird (and trust me, I'm pretty weird).
