This year, Demetri Martin made his directorial debut with the Kevin Kline–starring comedy-drama Dean. But fans of Martin know him best as a comedian, whose onstage, large-pad drawings are as much a part of his stand-up as his jokes. The first of three books, Martin's 2011 This Is a Book is a collection of both goofy and erudite short stories, essays, doodles, charts, crossword puzzles and lists with such chapters as "Socrates' Publicist," "Optimist, Pessimist, Contortionist" and "Honors & Awards (for Which I Would Qualify"), the latter of which includes "Gold medal in sucking at each and every sport that could make someone popular in high school." Tonight Martin discusses If It's Not Funny It's Art, his latest book of illustrations and jokes.
