    DescriptionPoint Your Face At This is a wonderfully entertaining book of cartoons and absurdity from Demetri Martin, the Perrier Award-winning comedian, and author of This Is A Book. If you want to laugh, point your face at this. In his first book, This Is a Book, Demetri Martin introduced fans and readers to his unique brand of long-form humour writing. Now Demetri returns with an eclectic volume devoted entirely to his trademark drawings and word play. Point Your Face At This contains hundreds of hilarious drawings and visual jokes, showcasing Martin's particular penchant for brevity. With a sensibility all its own, this is a great gift book and an absolute must-have for fans of the brainy, ambidextrous, comedian, palindromist (and author), Demetri Martin. Praise for Demetri Martin: "Highly inventive...Martin is a genius". (Telegraph). "A refined sense of the absurd". (Guardian). 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. Demetri has brown hair, and he is allergic to peanuts.

    Review quote
    Demetri Martin's This Is A Book was a huge hit. This is another surreal joke/sketch-filled tome that will doubtless please his ever-growing fan base Huffington Post Books of 2013 [Praise for Demetri Martin's This Is A Book]: Top drawer one-liners and a refined sense of the absurd Guardian Highly inventive ... Martin is a genius Telegraph Ranges from the straightforwardly daft to rather beautiful tales ... like the best of Woody Allen's short fiction Guardian Superior ... charming Times A mix of the inspired and the absurd Irish Times The reader who fancies this brand of wry absurdism and playful labeling will be absolutely entertained from The Front to The Back. This is a Guarantee Washington Post One of the most acclaimed and beloved comedians in the US -- Davin O'Dwyer Irish Times
