The Next Steven Wright?

NPR did a profile on Demitri Martin, a truly unique and very funny comic who also writes for Conan O'Brien. They have some bits in his interview and on their website, and he's really funny. Reminds me of Steven Wright in that he's a comedian who lives in our world, but sees things in a completely different way.

Not as surreal as Stevn Wright, but a very similar style of delivery.

I agree, not as surreal, but I meant in the sense of having a different way of thinking in his humor. I especially like his playing of a guitar when he talks. It adds a mellow quality, like he's providing his own soundtrack.
