Demetri Martin is a genius. Or at least very very very smart - he graduated from Yale and received a full scholarship to Yale Law. Luckily (for us, anyway), he dropped out of law school and decided to delight us with his style of smart and quirky humor instead. Yay! His book consists of short essays, dialogues, poems, random jokes, and drawings that strike the perfect balance between high- and low-brow humor. Especially impressive is his "Palindromes" chapter, which includes a two-page poem about a man in a strip bar that is one long palindrome, a feat that pretty much made me fall in love with him right then and there. Smart, hilarious, AND adorable? He's lucky I'm married or I'd totally stalk him.
