Urbane former lawyer-turned-comedian Demetri Martin engages with a live studio audience and presents his unique way of looking at the world in Important Things. Each episode of Important Things revolves around the many diverse facets or aspects of a single topic, including topics such as timing, power, money, lines, and safety. The show includes several recurring tent-peg segments, including Good, Bad, Interesting, which explores the many ways different situations can be addressed and Important Things Things, where fictitious products inspired by that episode's topic are pitched to the audience. Each episode invariably features Demetri Martin performing one or more songs that he's composed, including songs like Me vs. You, and Break-Up Lines. The show also includes demonstrations where Martin, utilizing a large sketch pad, tells traditional observational stand-up jokes using unorthodox methods, like bar graphs, pie charts and line charts. Other segments include Other Jokes, which gives the audience an insight to jokes that didn't make the cut for Martin's opening monologue and Jokes, where Martin shares interesting insights and thoughts about that particular episode's topic. Important Things ran for two seasons on the Comedy Central network, but was quietly canceled following its second season, despite its consistently positive reviews.
