Why he might be annoying

He had a full ride to New York University's School of Law, but dropped out with one year left.
Critics of his feel he is a 'poor man's Mitch Hedberg.'

Why he might not be annoying
In addition to telling jokes in traditional stand-up style, he also tells jokes accompanied by an acoustic guitar, piano, or various visual aids.
He has drawn some comparisons to Steven Wright and Mitch Hedberg because of his heavy usage of dead-pan one-liners in observational comedy.
An example of his humor; 'Saying ‘I’m sorry’ is the same as saying ‘I apologize.’ Except at a funeral.'
He is good friends with Will Forte, and Forte appeared on Martin's CD.
He appeared on an episode of 'Flight of the Conchords.'
