Important Things with Demetri Martin is a sketch-variety show on Comedy Central starring comedian Demetri Martin.

The show is produced by Jon Stewart's Busboy Productions[1] The show contains stand-up and prop comedy by Martin, as well as taped sketches. Jon Stewart took an active role in editing the first few episodes.[2]

Recurring segments

Good, Bad, Interesting - In this segment Martin will present a good, a bad and an interesting reaction to topics based on everyday life situations.

This is... - Often used as a transition, this segment features a single humorous concept related to the show's topic in which one or more cast members will act out.
