Demitri Martin at the Newmark

The multi-talented Daily Show "youth correspondent" and Important Things host makes his own fun using song, drawings, and absurd infographs.

Around 2008, his mop top, calm demeanor, and deceptively teenaged looks made Demitri Martin a fixture as a “youth correspondent” on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show . While a glance at the now-38-year-old’s driver’s license might challenge the moniker, his comedy stylings fully support it. Combining animation, songwriting, and info-graphics, Martin’s approach is tailor-made for the multi-media and DIY-savvy millennial generation, earning him his own spinoff, Important Things . See what we mean in this episode—and who knows? It may whet your appetite for his appearance at the Newmark this weekend.
