Demetri Martin, who will soon be appearing alongside Rainn Wilson in The Rocker (A failed, over-the-hill drummer (Wilson) gets a second chance at rock n’ roll fame, twenty years after getting booted out of his now legendary former band, Vesuvius), is one of the funniest comedians around. 

And now Comedy Central is giving him his own show, Important Things With Demetri Martin, "a sketch-variety show that will have Martin alternating between taped sketches and stand-up performances in front of a studio audience." Now, if only they’d send me a written apology for Mind of Mencia… 

I like Demetry Martin, because I love how he uses visual aides.  It reminds of meetings at my old job, where my boss would be clicking through PowerPoint presentations, and I’d just sit there, wishing she’d get AIDS.
