DEMETRI MARTIN is well known as a stand-up performer, "Daily Show" correspondent, host of his own Comedy Central show, musician and "sketch" comedian (literally drawing sketches). DEAN adds both writer and director to his resume.
Premiering at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, "DEAN" received Best U.S. Narrative Feature. The jury commented:
We all fell in love with this film. It manages the near impossible task of breathing new life into a well-worn genre, balancing humor and pathos with an incredibly deft touch, and offering a unique perspective on the way we process loss.
