Chuckle fans among you ought to start running to your wallets for this one: critically acclaimed funny dude and perennial fan favourite Demetri Martin has just announced a run of tour dates for Australia and New Zealand this coming May and June; his first trip out this way since 2011.

The enduringly deadpan comic has been hard at work over the latter stages of 2018 touring his new show Wandering Mind across the UK, Ireland, and Europe, and come late May he’ll be bringing it to the Antipodes for the very first time.

Audiences will no doubt be familiar with him thanks to his Netflix comedy special The Overthinker, which was released in August of last year. Beyond that though, Martin has had a long and storied career in both stand-up and TV, which included scoring the Barry Award for best show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2006.

Martin’s tour in May and June will take him through New Zealand before a run of dates across major Australian centres, beginning on June 4th in Adelaide.

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday February 8th.
