Joke of the Overnight

Fosco isn't quite sure how to feel about comedian Demetri Martin. On the one hand, he's working partially in the cerebral tradition of Stephen Wright--a tradition that Fosco enjoys. On the other hand, he's sometimes too cutesy by half.

I guess he has a new show (premiering tonight) that I probably won't watch. However, I did catch part of an old standup special last night and he had several really great lines. My favorite:

"I went whale watching once, it was very similar to watching people on a boat become disappointed."

That's kind of a great joke. To me, at least.
