You hate Demetri Martin because he reminds you of you, and he's 36.
Galifianakis is funny. People should watch the Comedians of Comedy doc. Posehn is good, too; Bamford isn't really my thing. But of the people in the show, Galifianakis is the funniest on his feet. Shame his talk show thing didn't work, that was a good venue for him.

Other current, lower profile standups who are good--Leo Allen, Todd Barry. I dunno what happened to Greg Fitzsimmons. He seemed funny but I haven't seen him anywhere outside of "Best Week Ever" type things. Speaking of which, that's given a lot of exposure to otherwise mid-level comedians.
