Demetri Martin: The Overthinker (2018)

20180823:
I love Demitri Martin's observational humor.

Unfortunately, the director's choice of narration occasionally detracted from the comedy. With that being said, I applaud the courage to experiment with a new style of narration and there may have been tweaks to the style that would improve the humor rather than ruin it.


Overall, if you're a fan of Demitri Martin, then I would recommend this special, because it mostly what you would expect from him. As I mentioned, the special occasionally pulls back and the viewer will hear Demetri narrating his thoughts; unfortunately, this is only sometimes funny.
