Demetri MartinOh, I've been waiting for this.

It's been a while since we've heard anything about the show that stand up comic Demetri Martin was working on for Comedy Central. But now we not only have a premiere date for Important Things with Demetri Martin (Wednesday, February 11 at 10:30pm and produced by Jon Stewart), we also have a new web site and a bunch of preview videos.

The new sitcom features Martin as the supervisor at a restaurant, where he has to deal with all of the wacky people who work there and all of the crazy customers. He also has a boss who gets on his nerves and a beautiful wife at home.

Kidding! It's not a sitcom at all. It's actually a sketch comedy/stand up show that clearly plays to Martin's strengths (funny observations, absurd humor) and features a lot of his signature pieces, like the Big Pad and musical animation. After the jump is a quick preview of the show, and you can go to the site and watch more preview videos. Check out Jerry Pappas: Time Gigolo.

I'm still pissed he stole from Mitch Hedberg for his Standup Special...

I saw a taping of a few episodes. Deeitri seemed really tired and nervous between takes but the show was hilarious. I hope people tune in.
