With the rise of podcasts as an entertainment medium, Marc Maron has been at the forefront with the popular WTF with Marc Maron. The podcast is known for interviewing celebrities, comedians and even President of the United States, Barack Obama. Maron’s interview with American comedian Louis C.K. is the highest rated podcast of all time.
Outside of his highly acclaimed podcast, Maron is a comedian, writer, producer and director who is bringing his stand-up show to Australia for his 2015 Maronation Tour. Hitting Brisbane and Melbourne, the tour kicks off here in Sydney this Thursday. Bringing his brand of humour to Australia will be a rarity for the comedian as he uses his sense of dark humour to discuss his life. For fans of Maron or modern day pop culture in general, it is imperative you see this show!
His television show Maron, now in its third season, can be found on ABC2 as well as his comedy special Thinky Pain being released on Netflix. This stand-up is the marrying of all forms of his media, and a great way to see the man himself up close and personal. (LB)
