I have been a Demetri Martin fan since long before he got famous..and I have always loved his unique perspective and humorous takes on life..but in my opinion he phoned this one in. I was incredibly disappointed..he seemed bored and also acted like he wasn't even interested in the jokes he was telling. It was almost as if seemed mad at the crowd, in effect saying "I'm demetri martin, you should laugh no matter what I say up here"..it was almost an alter ego type of character similar to what andy Kaufman used to do only this act by Martin wasn't even funny. It was a real bummer as I had been looking forward to this show. Even the crowd reacted as if they weren't sure why he was there or what was doing. His attempt at being a little more edgy failed simply because he is just not good at it and it's not his style so those jokes all failed.. there was a portion where he played the guitar and rifled off some rapid fire one liners that were pretty good but that was it..again a let down compared to his other specials...of course I'll watch the next one as he is funny and my guess is this is a one time fail..
