Point Your Face at This

Point Your Face at This: DrawingsPoint Your Face at This: Drawings by Demetri Martin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A stand-up comic's compilation of his simple and pun-filled sketches, part xkcd, part The Far Side.

Demetri Martin had a short-lived show on Comedy Central, and I remember his drawings being the best part. It's full of visual punning and absurdity (there's even a desert island drawing for those Far Side fans). The jokes are sometimes buried, but many of them made me laugh out loud after the moment of realization. There are a few duds, too, but they pass so briefly. This book could likely be read in a half an hour.

If you like your humor weird and nerdy (charts, graphs, and Venn diagrams abound), this is definitely the book for you.
