This floppy-haired comedian and star of both his own Comedy Central show, Important Things With Demetri Martin, and the new Ang Lee film, Taking Woodstock, brings his live stand-up act to the Cintas Center on Xavier University’s campus. His brand of clean, comedic musings often leads to observations like, “The easiest time to add insult to injury is when you’re signing somebody’s cast” or “Swimming is a confusing sport, because sometimes you do it for fun, and other times you do it to not die. And when I’m swimming, sometimes I’m not sure which one it is. I gotta go by the outfit. Pants — uh oh. Bathing suit — OK. Naked — we’ll see. Should I be swimming faster or am I getting laid?” He also generally comes equipped with a guitar, an easel and a marker (to make diagrams). $20-$35. 7:30 p.m.
