SLCene Suggests: Demetri Martin at Wiseguys West Valley City

by on January 14, 2015


DEMETRI MARTIN, WISEGUYS WEST VALLEY CITY, Friday, Jan. 16, 7:30 & 10 p.m., $35

For at least a decade now, comedian Demetri Martin has seemed like a man on the verge of a serious mainstream breakthrough, yet if you ask the average Joe or Jane, they probably don’t know him by name. Perhaps if you showed them a picture of the age-defying Martin, they might recognize the shock of brown hair from one of his acting gigs in movies like Taking Woodstock or In A World. Maybe they recall his hour-long standup special from clicking through Comedy Central. If you’re unfamiliar with his comedy stylings, there’s good reason to fix that. If you can find videos of his short-lived TV series Important Things with Demetri Martin, they’ll well worth a watch. And his best-selling book, This Is a Book by Demetri Martin, is a gem as well. The easiest way to get to know him? Go see Martin at one of his two shows in SLC Friday. You won’t be sorry.
