Demitri Martin's Important Things

I'm not sure if you know who Demitri Martin is, but lets just say you should. He's a comedian probably best known for being the "young" correspondent on The Daily Show. You might remember him from such awesome hard hitting news pieces like his Trendspotting series.

He's also put out a comedy CD called These are Jokes that I've heard parts of and think are very funny, and he's had a well received Comedy Central special called Dimitri Martin: Person. Well now thanks to Jon Stewart's production company Busboy and Comedy Central, Demitri will have his very own tv show!

According to the Hollywood Reporter Important Things With Demitri Martin is going to be a sketch comedy show starring Martin, and one would presume a few other people as well, and will riff each episode on a kind of theme, such as "the important things about chairs" which is one of his very funny comedy bits. The show is set to hit the airwaves late next year with at least 6 to 10 episodes. Very very cool.
