Good-natured comic Demetri Martin rose to fame as a stand-up comedian, later becoming a correspondent on The Daily Show and landing his own Comedy Central television show, Important Things with Demetri Martin. These Are Jokes is his first live recording, performed at the Lakeshore Theater in Chicago in 2006. With his characteristic dry delivery, Martin offers a mix of clever one-liners, musical numbers, and quirky musings. Featuring guest performances from SNL cast member Will Forte and comedian Leo Allen, this Gold-certified album is a crowd-pleaser.
Recorded live in February 2006 at the Lakeshore Theater in Chicago.

Demetri reminds me a bit of Mitch Hedberg; he has offbeat observations; and a wickedly dry delivery. This was a great listen; after the joke parts there are a couple of songs he does which are both annoying and funny; this is mostly clean humor, there are a few f words, but very few; thus, you may not want to play it with the kids in the car. really quite enjoyable; have recommended to several others who have also really liked it.
