Demetri Martin rose to relative obscurity when he started doing stand-up comedy in New York City at the end of the 20th Century. Later he became a writer at Late Night with Conan O’Brien and then a regular performer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In 2003, Demetri won the Perrier Award at the International Fringe Festival for his first one-man show, If I. He released a comedy album called These Are Jokes and then created and starred in his own television series called Important Things with Demetri Martin. His first stand-up comedy special, Demetri Martin. Person is considered by many to be his longest and only hour-long stand-up comedy special. Martin has appeared in movies as an actor, most recently in Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion and most lengthily in Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock. His first book, This Is a Book by Demetri Martin is a New York Times Bestseller. Demetri has brown hair, and he is allergic to peanuts.
Jeff Jones is a 2nd generation Florida native. That is almost as rare as big foot. Jeff didn't begin performing stand-up comedy until the age of 30 when a group of coworkers who thought he was funny bought him a gift certificate to a stand up comedy class. Jeff is the kind of person who isn't afraid to say out loud what everyone else in the room in thinking. His style is irreverent but still intelligent. He takes pride in being an equal opportunity offender. Jeff has performed throughout the southeast US and many clubs and is a favorite with the GLBT community. Jeff isn't a gay comedian; he's a comedian who just happens to be gay. Stories of dating nightmares, grocery store debacles and obsession with 80's television shows can be shared and appreciated by all. Jeff has performed with Alec Mappa, Joel McHale and the legendary Joan Rivers. He has also appeared on The Cue Fox as a featured comedian interviewing non English speaking tourists about Florida current events.
