The trailer for Demetri Martin: Live (At The Time) begins with the comedian announcing that he has a lot of jokes to tell, which is probably good news for anyone watching a comedy special. The subsequent jokes are standard Martin fare, which is good news for any of his fans watching this comedy special.

Martin meanders through a wide range of topics without a sketchpad on hand but with his trademark deadpan delivery. He shares his thoughts on everything from simple tools to the positive connotation of the word “folks,” with some karate-related bragging thrown in for good measure. By the time he gets to making an especially bad uneducated guess, even the title cards admit they don’t know where he’s going with this—but again, that’s just part of his charm.


Demetri Martin: Live (At The Time) premieres August 14 on Netflix.
