So today I met Demetri Martin. He’s funny. He’s my favorite comedian (or tied with Bo Burnham for the title). He did a Q&A session at a Barnes & Noble about 20 minutes away from where I live. I asked a question: “I loved your performance in Taking Woodstock. Obviously you’ve taken some time to write this book and work in your standup. Do you plan to return to film any time soon?” and he said, “What this young lady asked was ‘Why hasn’t anyone hired your for another movie role?” He went on to explain that he’d like to do more movies soon and he has a really small part in a new Soderbergh movie coming out soon. In response to another question, he also said his favorite skit from Important Things was Bruce The Funny Dog. That made me happy because it’s my favorite skit too.
I have another photo of just me and him but this is better. I asked if he would pose for a ‘stoic family portrait’ with myself and my friends Cody and Sean. He very willingly obliged. This was the outcome.
