Filed under: cracks us up
BAD PUN, we know. Silly us, trying to be clever and/or funny two days in a row. It’s just that we were so very excited to discover the following video, we couldn’t contain ourselves. But before we let you watch, we thought it might be nice to provide a little background, for perspective. Naturally, we’re not sure what perspective we’re about to provide, but as always, that’s beside the point.
WE first saw this 33 year old comedian — who looks more like he’s 17 by the way, and what the hell is up with that? — DEMETRI MARTIN on Comedy Central last year, when he appeared as a “Youth Correspondent” on The Daily Show (best TV program ever) in a segment called TRENDSPOTTING. (that first link is to a piece on Life Coaches, but our all-time favorite was his report on MYSPACE — which we think our new friend DIESEL might need to watch, because he and Demetri have SOMETHING in common — but we digress.) The point (one of ’em anyway) is that this kid is freaking funny. Needless to say, we were startled to learn he suffers from a rare condition, which he intends to chronicle in a series of short films, starting with the one you’re about to watch.
FOR more information on Demetri Martin and/or to hear a few wicked funny riffs, you can check out his other website at CLEARIFICATION.COM. Now, at this point, we suppose we should actually encourage a response of some sort from all of you, so we figure we’ll ask this question: Who’s making YOU laugh these days? Oh, but please don’t say MIZ BOHEMIA, because we’ve already got that covered — of course, if you’ve yet to see her latest recorded effort, which features
some impressive Grade-A klutziness an hilarious exchange with her handsome hubby, Loverboy, by all means do so, now. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did. And if that doesn’t crack you up, perhaps this late night post addition, featuring a certain SINGIN’ DAWG, will. (sorry Doug, it couldn’t be helped)
