Demetrius spends a goodly part of his time recounting conversations he has with his friends. My favorite was the one with his deaf friend, who had just broken up with his girlfriend. When Demetrius asked why, he wrote, "I just couldn't take the bitching." Demetrius pauses, looks around in amazement at the audience, and asks, "Do you know how much you have to bitch at a deaf man to make him leave you?"
Demetrius Nicodemus returns to the Comedy Showcase on Saturday, July 5.
