Get Awkward with Comedian Demetri Martin at the CCA
The comedy of Demetri Martin relies on equal parts absurdity, pithy observations, quick-witted one-liners and at times, awkwardness. Extreme, stifling awkwardness. And now, that awkwardness should be front and center when his "Let's Get Awkward" Tour hits the CCA mainstage on Friday, April 13 at 8PM.Martin started doing stand-up comedy in New York City. Then he worked as a staff writer at Late Night with Conan O'Brien. After that, he was a regular performer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Martin has released two standup comedy albums and three hour-long standup comedy specials, including one for Netflix in 2015 titled Demetri Martin Live. He created and starred in his own television series for Comedy Central called Important Things with Demetri Martin. He has appeared in several feature films and television shows, including Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock and Showtime's House of Lies. His first two books, This Is a Book by Demetri Martin and Point Your Face at This are both New York Times Bestsellers and his fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, Playboy and Esquire.
