Monty Python's The Meaning of Life: Hospital

| 0 comments

This is the sketch they played in my birthing class. Unfortunately, they played it with the sound all the way down, so you couldn't hear any of the dialogue. You could just barely make out the sound of the machine that goes "bing," though. Graham Chapman was a physician, of course, and I suppose that meant that some of the group's sharpest satire was reserved for the world of medicine.

Demetri Martin, author of This Is A Book: Interview on The Sound of Young America

Demetri Martin

Demetri Martin is a standup comedian, writer and actor. He's just published his first book, "This Is A Book." Like his comedy, the book reveals Martin's interest in structure, order and disruptions of structure and order. He's always been a fan of puzzles, and the book features, among other things, some extraordinarily long anagrams.

Demetri talks with Jesse Thorn about how standup comedy is like skateboarding, how his father, a priest, inspired him to be a performer, and more. Martin last appeared on The Sound of Young America about seven years ago.

JESSE THORN: It's The Sound of Young America, I'm Jesse Thorn. My guest on the program is the comedian Demetri Martin. He's an accomplished standup comic, and he's also had his own standup and sketch show, Important Things with Demetri Martin on Comedy Central. He's been featured in a number of films, and starred in one recently, and now he's the author of a brand new book called This is a Book.

Demetri, welcome back to The Sound of Young America.

DEMETRI MARTIN: Hey Jesse, thanks for having me.

JESSE THORN: I think we counted it up, it's actually been seven years since the last time you were on The Sound of Young America. It's a long time, thank you so much for coming back.

DEMETRI MARTIN: Yeah, thanks for having me back.
