Marc Maron has been a comedian for 25 years. He’s had his problems. But ever since he moved into his garage and started podcasting things have really improved. That life of sobriety thing has helped his life and career, too, but we’re here to talk podcasting! Marc’s incredibly popular WTF Podcast (which you should go download right now) features conversations with celebrities and fellow comedians. While listening to people talk about themselves for an hour could be boring, WTF is anything but dull. It is a uniquely fascinating, absolutely compelling and brutally funny.
As you already know, we’re combining that podcast and Marc’s life into a television show with the working title “Maron,” which is slated to premiere in 2013. It will be joining another podcast-turned-TV show on our lineup, “Comedy Bang! Bang!” What can we say? We’re fans of the funny. Marc’s podcast, which he launched in 2009, quickly became something of a phenomenon. He has attracted listeners with his frank and open style of talking about his life in comedy and in the private sphere. Also, he’s hilarious which makes people willing to sign up to hang out in Marc’s garage and chat.
