Comedian and New York Times Bestseller Demetri Martin presents "Point Your Face At This Tour" featuring a mix of stand-up and material from his new book, "POINT YOUR FACE AT THIS" at UP Comedy Club (230 W. North Ave, 3rd Floor of Piper's Alley) for a special one night event. Tickets are $30.00 and go on sale Friday, January 25 at 10:00 a.m. Visit UP Comedy Club for more information.

The appearance is set for Monday, April 1, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at UP Comedy Club, 230 W. North Ave, 3rd Floor of Piper's Alley.

In his first book, This Is A Book, Demetri Martin introduced fans and readers to his unique brand of long-form humor writing. Now Demetri returns with an eclectic volume devoted entirely to his trademark one-liners and drawings, as well as short prose and poetry, leaving the longer-form material for his next hardcover. Like an indie stepchild of Gary Larson, and Jack Handey, POINT YOUR FACE AT THIS contains hundreds of drawings, jokes, and page-long bits, showcasing Martin's particular penchant for brevity and a sensibility all it's own-and will be a great gift book and a must-have for fans of the brainy, ambidextrous, comedian, palindromist (and author) Demetri Martin.

Demetri Martin rose to relative obscurity when he started doing stand-up comedy in New York City at the end of the 20th Century. Later he became a writer at Late Night with Conan O'Brien and then a regular performer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In 2003, Demetri won the Perrier Award at the International Fringe Festival for his first one-man show, If I. He released a comedy album called These Are Jokes and then created and starred in his own television series called Important Things with Demetri Martin. His first stand-up comedy special, Demetri Martin. Person is considered by many to be his longest and only hour-long stand-up comedy special. Martin has appeared in movies as an actor, most recently in Steven Soderbergh's Contagion and most lengthily in Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock. His first book, This Is a Book by Demetri Martin is a New York Times Bestseller. Demetri has brown hair, and he is allergic to peanuts.
