Demetri Martin: What 'Important Things' should he address in season 2?

Posted on

He has already tackled brains, safety, and, naturally, chairs, but Demetri Martin has officially been given the go-ahead by Comedy Central to address another slew of important things for a second season of his clever show, Important Things With Demetri Martin. To which I say: woot! This news makes me feel so warm and fuzzy, I just might buy a De Veers ring for Comedy Central to toast the occasion.

That said, I hope the brainy comedian decides to make just a few changes in season 2. For one, I would love to see a yellow belt toss out Martin’s ho-hum yellow belt sketches. And for whatever reason, I never jumped on board with his slam poet champion. But here’s hoping Martin holds onto the show’s most important element: plenty of hysterical pie charts and graphs — as well as guest spots from the likes of John Oliver and David Cross — to accompany his hit-or-miss sketches.

What changes, if any, would you like to see in season 2? And what important things should Martin address? I vote hair, cheese, and Patrick Swayze movies. Because what’s more vital to life than Roadhouse? Finally, enjoy one of my favorite sketches from season 1 — “Urinal Talk” — below!
