Demetri Martin
Date of Birth
May 25, 1973


Though perhaps best known for his "Trendspotting" segments on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Demetri Martin was quite successful in comedy circles for several years prior to his contributions as TDS's "youth correspondent." In 2003, Martin appeared on Comedy Central's standup comedy special Premium Blend, and went on to write for Late Night With Conan O'Brien in the show's Emmy-winning 2003-2004 season. In a somewhat ironic career move, Martin signed a deal with Microsoft to write ads for Windows Vista (fellow Daily Show contributor John Hodgman appears regularly in Apple commercials). In 2007, Martin starred in Demetri Martin. Person., another Comedy Central showcase. The comedian also stars in the television series Important Things With Demetri Martin, put out by none other than Jon Stewart's Busboy Productions. Martin would continue to find success on screen in a variety of roles, from comedies like The Rocker and Take Me Home Tonight, to far more serious fare, like the 2011 Soderbergh thriller Contagion. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
