Martin studied at the Yale University and graduated in 1995, and although being accepted into Harvard Law School, Demetri decided to enrol at the New York University School of Law after getting a full scholarship. However, he dropped out in his final year to pursue a career in comedy.

Martin got his break in 2001 in Comedy Central’s standup show “Premium Blend”. He later secured a job as a writer of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” (2003-2004) and then had his own show on Comedy Central in 2004. Martin appeared in Harold Ramis’ comedy movie “Analyze That” (2002) starring Robert De Niro, Billy Crystal, and Lisa Kudrow then Demetri worked as a contributor to “The Daily Show” (2005-2014), and had roles in “The Rocker” (2008), and starred in Ang Lee’s “Taking Woodstock” (2009). All contributed to his net worth.

In the 2010’s, Martin appeared more frequently in movies, securing roles in “Take Me Home Tonight” (2011), and Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” (2011) with Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, and Jude Law. He continued with “In a World…” (2013), “Sequoia” (2014), “The Last Time You Had Fun” (2014), as well as giving his voice to Ice Bear in “We Bare Bears” (2014-2016). Most recently, Martin played in “House of Lies” (2015), and in “Dean” (2016), all of which increased his net worth.

Martin has released six comedy-related DVD’s: “Invite Them Up” (2005), “These Are Jokes” (2006), “Demetri Martin. Person.” (2007), “Important Things with Demetri Martin” (2009), “Standup Comedian.” (2012), and “Live (At the Time)” (2015), which significantly increased his net worth, and his writing job generated even more money to his bank account.

#Trademark
1Unexpected punchlines
#Quote
1[on producing an indie movie] It's humbling. You get twenty days to shoot the thing and you think you're ready, and then of course reality hits you. It's like 'They're having trouble parking the truck; there's a helicopter up there so we have to wait for sound'. You can just see the minutes ticking away and we're losing light. It's all those things that you really don't have to worry about with stand-up. Show up to the gig, tell the jokes for an hour then you're done.
2[on performing in stand-up comedy] I have to trust that I will come up with something good each day, whether it's a drawing or a joke or a couple of jokes, or an idea for a story, or a paragraph. You keep pushing and try to be disciplined and organized, so I find stuff and say, 'There's an idea I think that will will work in a book two years fro now'. Then, when the deadline comes closer, I can sift through the pile and know what I've got to work with.
3I wrapped my Christmas presents early this year, but I used the wrong paper. See, the paper I used said 'Happy Birthday' on it. I didn't want to waste it so I just wrote 'Jesus' on it.
4I think that when you get dressed in the morning, sometimes you're really making a decision about your behavior for the day. Like if you put on flipflops, you're saying: 'Hope I don't get chased today.' 'Be nice to people in sneakers.'
5I love women, but I feel like you can't trust some of them. Some of them are liars, you know? Like I was in the park and I met this girl, she was cute and she had a dog. And I went up to her, we started talking. She told me her dog's name. Then I said, 'Does he bite?' She said, 'No.' And I said, 'Oh yeah? Then how does he eat?' Liar.
6I wanna make a jigsaw puzzle that's 40,000 pieces. And when you finish it, it says 'go outside.'
7My favorite fruit is grapes. Because with grapes, you always get another chance. 'Cause, you know, if you have a crappy apple or a peach, you're stuck with that crappy piece of fruit. But if you have a crappy grape, no problem - just move on to the next. 'Grapes: The Fruit of Hope.'
8I like video games, but they are very violent. I want to create a video game in which you have to help all the characters who have died in the other games. 'Hey, man, what are you playing?' 'Super Busy Hospital. Could you leave me alone? I'm performing surgery! This guy got shot in the head, like, 27 times!'
9I was walking in the park and this guy waved at me. Then he said, 'I'm sorry, I thought you were someone else.' I said, 'I am.'
10If you can't tell a spoon from a ladle, then you're fat!
11I like women, but you can't always trust them. Some of them are big liars, like this one woman I met who had a dog. I asked her her dog's name and then I asked, 'Does he bite?' and she said, 'No.' And I said, 'So how does he eat?' Liar!
12Whenever I'm on my computer, I don't type 'lol'. I type 'lqtm' - laugh quietly to myself. It's more honest.
13The digital camera is a great invention because it allows us to reminisce. Instantly.
14I used to play sports. Then I realized you can buy trophies. Now I am good at everything.
15If I ever saw an amputee getting hanged, I'd probably just start calling out letters.
16Saying, 'I'm sorry' is the same as saying, ' I apologize.' Except at a funeral.
17I noticed that there are no B batteries. I think that's to avoid confusion, cause if there were you wouldn't know if someone was stuttering. 'Yes, hello I'd like some b-batteries.' 'What kind?' 'B-batteries.' 'What kind?' 'B-batteries!' and D-batteries that's hard for foreigners. 'Yes, I would like de batteries.'
18The bird, the bee, the running child are all the same to the sliding glass door.
19I keep a lighter in my back pocket all the time. I'm not a smoker, I just really like certain songs.
20When you have a fat friend there are no see-saws, only catapults.
21A drunk driver is very dangerous. So is a drunk backseat driver if he's persuasive.
22A lot of people like lollipops. I don't like lollipops. To me, a lollipop is hard candy plus garbage. I don't need a handle. Just give me the candy.
23I saw a transvestite wearing a T-shirt that said 'Guess'.
24If I have to move up in a building, I choose the elevator over the escalator. Because one time I was riding the escalator and I tripped. I fell down the stairs for an hour and a half.
25A lot of people don't like bumper stickers. I don't mind bumper stickers. To me a bumper sticker is a shortcut. It's like a little sign that says 'Hey, let's never hang out.'
26My plumbing is all screwed up. Because it turns out, I do not own a garbage disposal.
27I went into a clothing store, and the lady asked me what size I was. I said, 'Actual'. I'm not to scale.
28Employee of the month is a good example of how somebody can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.
29I like to use 'I Can't Believe it's Not Butter' on my toast in the morning, because sometimes when I eat breakfast, I like to be incredulous. How was breakfast? Unbelievable.
30Swimming is a confusing sport, because sometimes you do it for fun, and other times you do it to not die. And when I'm swimming, sometimes I'm not sure which one it is.
31The worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of charades.
32I like fruit baskets because it gives you the ability to mail someone a piece of fruit without appearing insane. Like, if someone just mailed you an apple you'd be like, 'huh? What the hell is this?' But if it's in a fruit basket you're like, 'this is nice!'
33I didn't do improv in college, I never performed, I didn't do theater either. I was in student government, I was a history major.
34I think it's interesting that 'cologne' rhymes with 'alone.'
35The shortest feedback loop I can think of is doing improvisation in front of an audience.
36And as far as actors go, Peter Sellers is my all-time favorite.
37And of course I didn't make any money from stand up for years, so I had temp jobs. That was the way I made money.
38I'm always excited to try something I haven't done.
39I wonder what the most intelligent thing ever said was that started with the word 'dude.' 'Dude, these are isotopes.' 'Dude, we removed your kidney. You're gonna be fine.' 'Dude, I am so stoked to win this Nobel Prize. I just wanna thank Kevin, and Turtle, and all my homies.'
40And my only rule being if when I wake in the morning I'm looking forward to the things that I have to do that day, then I'm on the right track.
41Another term for balloon is bad breath holder.
42Specifically in stand-up, I love jokes. I love short, structured ideas and a punchline.
43But I found that disappointing people is a good thing, because disapproval is freedom.
44I am completely attracted to the idea of simplicity, or at least removing things that seem unnecessary when trying to get an idea out there.
45I have fun acting, and I want to do more of it, and I want to direct my own movie.
46I just know keeping track of what I'm doing and where I'm going is important to me.
47I know about Woodstock probably as much as your average person who is over 30, where I'd know Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead.
48I love Steven Wright.
49I never set out to do a sketch show.
50I started being a comedy fan when I was, I'm going to guess, like 5 or 6 years old.
51I tend to avoid televisions, politics, and places with velvet ropes.
52I think a lot of stuff I find funny is from day dreaming.
53I think it would be cool if you were writing a ransom note on your computer, if the paper clip popped up and said, 'Looks like you're writing a ransom note. Need help? You should use more forceful language, you'll get more money.'
54There's a store in my neighborhood called Futon World. I like that name, 'Futon World.' Makes me think of a magical place that gets less and less comfortable over time.
55It's very easy to go through your whole life and never really get anything done or have any real meaningful interactions or relationships. All of a sudden you're dead, and I'm going to say that's got to be a letdown.
56Stand-up is like a row boat: it's fun and romantic when you're choosing to do it. But if you have no other choice than to be in a row boat it's not as enjoyable; that's survival.
57People and squirrels are very different. Most people will not argue that. But I find that there is one situation in which they're very similar. And that is: when I am driving towards them in my car. Then they're kind of hard to tell apart - especially if the human is kind of hairy.
58I think since I was kid people told me that they thought I was funny.
59I think, at first blush, the '60s always enticed me. There's something about the '60s, it's not hard to like it.
60I was student council president in high school, and even in law school, I was vice-president of the student bar association.
61I went to law school. I found it interesting for the first three weeks.
62Let no man's deathbed be a futon.
63Nothing wise was ever printed upon an apron.
64People only have so much attention.
65To me, comedy is a game.
66Usually, I walk around and think about things. When I come across a thought that makes me laugh, I write it down.
67When I was a kid, I always wanted to live in California because I liked skateboarding.
68But long story short, I didn't start doing stand-up because I wanted to have a TV show or be an actor or even wanted to write sketch comedy. I got into stand-up because I love stand-up.
69But what I was going to say was, I just figured I'm going to go boldly in the direction of my dreams, say it as Thoreau would say, and just see where it takes me.
70For example, I was a White House intern the summer before I dropped out of law school. Everybody knew about it. I'd come home and go to church and everybody would say, 'Oh, my God. Demetri, you're working at the White House.'
71I love catching a snapshot of something that is just about to happen. Or maybe something that just happened, you know. But I like especially that just-before kind of feeling.
72I thought I would, you know, go to college, get to law school, finish, and then get a job and work as a lawyer, but that proved to be not a good fit for me.
73Okay, so, when I was a kid, definitely the drawings and the illustration. Then I stopped in sixth grade or so. And then I started again when I was in my twenties. I really didn't progress since then, so the way I draw is the way I drew in sixth grade.
74Stand up is really fun because if I think of a joke or a funny idea, then I can just go and tell some people and if they laugh, they laugh right away.
75The comedians I liked were Bill Cosby and Steven Wright, like just always as a comedic actor. I always liked Gary Larson, who's really funny for a cartoonist, obviously.
