Comedian Demetri Martin discusses his directorial debut on his new movie DEAN. He talks about how writing and directing a film about coping with grief helped him deal with his own loss and required him to rely more heavily on his own creative instincts. He also talks about lovingly lampooning LA in DEAN, working with Kevin Kline, giving up law school for comedy, and how he came to incorporate his drawings into his standup act. Plus Demetri Martin on fatherhood, seeing the world through his children's eyes and how to make binoculars out of toilet paper rolls.
