Following his sold out Canadian Tour in January 2012 – Telling Jokes in Cold Places – as well as his headlining appearance on the 2014 Just For Laughs Canadian Comedy Tour, stand-up comedian, writer, director and person Demetri Martin returns to Vancouver with his new show Let’s Get Awkward.

Demetri began doing stand-up comedy in New York City, where he worked as a staff writer at Late Night with Conan O’Brien and was a regular performer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Demetri has released two stand-up comedy albums and three hour-long stand-up comedy specials, including his latest for Netflix, Demetri Martin Live (at the time).

Demetri created and starred in his own television series for Comedy Central called Important Things with Demetri Martin. Demetri’s first two books, This Is a Book and Point Your Face at This, were both New York Times Bestsellers.

Demetri recently wrote and directed his first feature film, Dean, which won the Founder’s Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival for best narrative American feature film. CBS Films will release the film this month. In the fall, Demetri’s third book, If It’s Not Funny It’s Art, will feature his original drawings from Dean.
