showing just how little they believe in the show, comedy central has moved "important things" to 12:30 am. if you have insomnia, enjoy.

Demetri Martin gets CBS show
Comedian signs deal with network
By STUART LEVINE


Comedian Demetri Martin has a signed a blind script deal with CBS to star, write and produce his own show.

Standup won't be returning to Comedy Central, where his "Important Things With Demetri Martin" aired for two seasons. The show, produced by Jon Stewart's Busboy Prods., involved Martin in a variety of sketches, while also having the host engaging in some repartee with the audience.

By signing Martin, the Eye may be aiming to strive for a younger aud -- one that has come to the net in recent years with "The Big Bang Theory" and "How I Met Your Mother."

Martin has appeared in HBO's "Flight of the Conchords," as well as acting as a correspondent in Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart."

I hope CBS doesn't try to control what he does. I also hope that he writes his friends Bret and Jemaine into the script as they did with him... #pray# #excited2#

oh YAY! #cheer#
I loved Important things. Maybe this time a network wont screw him over.

(and yes. I'd very much love Bret and Jemaine to appear at one point!)

Bret may be The Boom King, but you're the one that makes my heart go BOOM.

Oh hey there, dusty old Demetri thread! #wave#

Demetri wrote a book, and he's doing a mega-mini tour! #lol# Here are some details, from his mailing list:
Hi. Here are 3 new things from me:



A BOOK

I wrote a book called This Is A Book by Demetri Martin. It has jokes, essays, stories, drawings, charts, graphs, and palindromes in it. It's now available for pre-order at Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com.



* The first 500 pre-orders will each receive an original, signed drawing from me. If you want one, just order the book online and then send a copy of your receipt to thisisapreorder@gmail.com.





TOURING

I am going on tour. My first MEGA MINI stand-up TOUR of 2011 will include:



St. Louis, MO 3/18/11 The Pageant

Atlanta, GA 3/19/11 The Tabernacle

Indianapolis, IN 4/21/11 The Egyptian Room

New Haven, CT 4/22/11 Shubert Theater

North Hampton, MA 4/23/10 Calvin Theater



And then, right after that, I'll be doing a BIG BOOK TOUR:



New York, NY 4/25/11 Barnes & Noble Union Sq.

Washington, DC 4/27/11 Sixth & I

Cambridge, MA 4/28/11 Harvard Co-Op

Austin, TX 4/29/11 Book People

Los Angeles, CA 5/01/11 LA Times Festival of Books

San Francisco, CA 5/05/11 Books Inc. in Opera Plaza

Portland, OR 5/06/11 Powell's Books

Seattle, WA 5/07/11 University Bookstore

West Hollywood, CA 5/10/11 Book Soup


I preordered a book. I hope I made it under the 500 mark so I can get a drawing. #love3#

Book signing is no where near me either. Indianapolis show could be doable... but it's on a Thursday. I don't think I'd make it driving right from work. :-\ #shakefist#

I have yet to see Demetri live. Which is funny since I was a fan of his before watching FOTC. #haha#

Demetri is in "Take Me Home Tonight" (Topher Grace). Not a huge part, but he does a great job of playing a bit of a prick...

There's a really great podcast interview with Demetri here. It's long (over an hour) but really interesting. Absolutely worth listening to.
