Curious or unusual in a way that provokes dry amusement.
If you look up the word droll in an illustrated dictionary, you’ll see it accompanied by a picture of comedian Demetri Martin.
Droll sounds like a derogatory term, but it really isn’t, um, I guess, unless you dislike droll humor.
Martin’s an interesting guy, Yale graduate, accepted into Harvard Law School, attended New York University School of Law on a full scholarship instead, and yet he’s best known for specializing drollery as a stand-up comedian, guest on The Daily Show, host of his own show, Important Things with Demetri Martin, and occasional film roles.
Martin often incorporates his own line drawings in his work, something he also does via Twitter.
