By Demetri Martin
From the well known comic, author and famous person of Comedy Central's Important issues with Demetri Martin comes the paperback debut of his daring, unique, New York Times best-selling humor book.
THIS IS A BOOK used to be an rapid and long-lasting New York Times top vendor, and is the popular comedian's hilarious foray into prose comedy. In those pages, Martin expands at the sensibility he is constructed on degree as an award-winning slapstick comedian and on tv as a writer-performer on Late evening with Conan O'Brien, The day-by-day exhibit with Jon Stewart, and his personal Comedy relevant sequence, Important issues with Demetri Martin.
Featuring narrative essays, brief tales, and conceptual items (such as "Protagonists' Hospital," the place medical professionals deal with basically the shoulder wounds of Hollywood motion heroes) in addition to Martin's signature drawings, absurdities, and one-liners, THIS IS A BOOK promises sharp jokes, colourful characters, and fascinating surprises.
Martin takes readers to areas as far away as historic Greece ("Socrates's Publicist") and the far-off destiny ("Robot Test," where everybody needs to take a try to turn out that they're now not robots). He recounts a lonely man's stopover at to a strip membership within the kind of a five-hundred-word palindrome ("Palindromes for particular Occasions"). And he examines the human ("Human Cannonball Occupational Hazards") and the competing world-views of divergent teams ("Optimist, Pessimist, Contortionist").
Martin's fabric is diversified, yet his detailed voice and really good brain will continue readers in stitches from commencing to finish.
