Maron

Series Summary
Marc Maron might not be a household name to casual comedy fans, but among his peers he's considered one of the best in the business. His podcast, "WTF With Marc Maron" -- on which he conducts in-depth interviews with celebrities and fellow comics such as Conan O'Brien, Louis CK, Robin Williams, Anthony Bourdain, Judd Apatow and Ben Stiller -- premiered in 2009 and has grown to average close to 3 million downloads a month. In "Maron," the funny man stars as a fictional version of himself (think "Curb Your Enthusiasm"), a cat-loving podcaster who, when he's not welcoming a passel of guest stars to entertain his online audience, struggles to maintain relationships apart from his work. Also starring are Judd Hirsch as Marc's father, Nora Zehetner as his girlfriend, Andy Kindler as his loyal friend, and Josh Brener as his assistant.

fan reviews ( )
  • Though its narrative structure and atmosphere take a markedly different tack, Maron presents itself as a fair complement to Louie in that both shows concern themselves with refreshingly substantive masculine types. show more

  • Maron is short, funny and coherent. show more

  • It takes what's great about the WTF podcast--Maron's smarts, his profound love of and understanding of comedy and the people who perform it--and adds a scripted, fictional element where Sally Kellerman can play his mother and Judd Hirsch can play his father and a bevy of real-life comics and friends can stop by to mingle the two worlds and it all works out marvelously and hilariously. show more
