For this Woodstock Writer's Festival panel, four of the best writers for late night television come to Woodstock to share the mirth. Panelists include the legendary Bill Scheft (The Late Show with David Letterman), Jess Dweck (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), and Meredith Scardino (The Colbert Report). Moderated by J.R. Havlan, (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart).
The panel will be a live taping of J.R.'s podcast, Writer's Bloc - he joins us for a preview.
Stand-up comedian, Demetri Martin, brings his “Point Your Face at this Tour” to The Calvin in Northampton, MA tonight. (He will also be at The Egg in Albany on Saturday - but that show is sold out.)
Demetri Martin has appeared on Comedy Central Presents, has two one-hour Comedy Central stand-up specials, he was the Trendspotting/Youth Correspondent on The Daily Show, a writer on Late Nightwith Conan O’Brien, had a Comedy Central Series entitled Important Things with Demetri Martin, appeared on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords (which I mention because it is a personal favorite), and starred in Ang Lee’s film, Taking Woodstock.
Next Tuesday, Demetri’s new book, Point Your Face at This: Drawings, will be available - it is published by Grand Central and is available for pre-order now. The book is a new collection of Demetri’s drawings - single panel, single page line drawings like the one’s he presents on a large pad of paper during many of his stand-up shows.
