The Paramount will welcome comedian Demetri Martin who’s on his Wandering Mind Tour on Saturday, March 23 at 7 p.m.

Martin started doing stand-up comedy in New York City before working as a staff writer at “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” He soon became a regular performer on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

In 2003, Martin won the Perrier Award at the International Fringe Festival for his first one-man show, If I. He won the Barry Award at Australia’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2006 for his third one-man show, Dr. Earnest Parrot Presents Demetri Martin.

Martin has released two standup comedy albums and three hour-long standup comedy specials, including his latest for Netflix in 2015 titled “Demetri Martin Live (at the time).” He created and starred in his own television series for Comedy Central called “Important Things with Demetri Martin.”

Martin has appeared in several feature films and television shows, including Ang Lee’s “Taking Woodstock” and Showtime’s “House of Lies.” Martin’s first two books, “This Is a Book by Demetri Martin” and “Point Your Face at This,” are both New York Times bestsellers.

Martin’s fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, Playboy and Esquire. He recently wrote and directed his first feature film, titled “Dean,” which he is currently editing.
