Demetri Martin

"[Demetri] Martin, along with one of his writers, Michael Koman, whom he'd met while working on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and an editor, Bryan Shelton, was cutting together an episode of his forthcoming show, Important Things With Demetri Martin. They needed to get the episode down to 22 minutes for its premiere on Comedy Central on February 11. They'd been at this process, on various episodes, for weeks. (When Flight 1549 went down in the Hudson River, Martin didn't know about it until he saw the plane being towed along in the river outside the building's window.) As a result, the editing suite had the slightly stale air of a missile-firing silo in which the men, bleary-eyed, have been locked together for too long, hands on the firing keys, ready to launch."

Demetri Martin is kicking ass lately. The very-soon to be TV star quickly sold out his upcoming NYC shows at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg. That of course hasn't stopped him from taking part in the culture that is NYC comedy which by that I mean making non-stop free appearances at venues like the soon-to-be-closed Sound Fix, UCB, and Pianos. Catch him tonight, for free, at Pianos - before the Ferraby Lionheart show. Details below...

I worked on the crew shooting the series this summer. Demetri is talented but a prima donna and needs to learn how to respect the people who are making his show happen. Hopefully Ang Lee whipped him into shape and taught him to be more appreciative.

"very-soon to be TV star"?

Is this like th 5th or 6th attempt at this? He also is a very big prima donna. Typical rich kid brat.
