Funny jokes by stand up comedians: Best stand up comedy routines and one liners

Demetri Martin: youtube videos of Stand Up Comedian Demetri Martin telling jokes

If you haven’t seen Comedian Demetri Martin yet, you are in for a treat.  To me he seems like a cross between Stephen Wright and Jerry Seinfield. A very laidback delivery of one liners and short jokes.  He sometimes uses a chart for visual jokes, a very original and funny approach. Other times he uses his trademark guitar, and plays softly while he delivers his jokes. 

 Here are some youtube videos of some of Demetri Martin’s comic routines
