Comedy and the Family: Demetri Martin
Demetri Martin is a 34-year-old comedian from Tom's River, N.J.
His father was a Greek Orthodox priest; his mother ran the family diner. Martin went to Yale, won a scholarship to NYU Law School, and chose comedy instead.
Years after he dropped out of law school, Martin is a successful stand-up comedian and regular contributor on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He also has had a special of his own this year on Comedy Central.
But what do Demetri's mother, Lillian, and grandmother, Dinah, think about that?
