He quips, he draws, he recites poetry. He even plays the guitar. A former "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" writer and a one-time player on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," deadpan comic Demetri Martin (he of the Beatles-style bowl cut) has over the years acquired a sizable following of devotees who revel in his wry, quirky and subtly subversive viewpoints. "You can say 'I love kids' as a general statement. That's fine," goes one of Martin's less-than-PC jokes. "It's when you get specific that you get into trouble: 'I love 12-year olds.'"
Or this: "Every fight is a food fight when you're a cannibal."
On Monday, April 1 (April Fools' Day, no less), Martin drops by UP for one night only (as of now, anyway) to showcase stand-up bits and material from his second book, "Point Your Face at This."
TICKETS ARE $30 AND GO ON SALE FRIDAY, JANUARY 25.
