Get Excited for Maron

Fans of the podcast WTF, on which Marc Maron interviews great comedians in his garage and divulges, usually on purpose, his various neuroses and hang-ups, probably do not need much convincing to tune in to Maron. The show stars Marc Maron as a comedian named Marc Maron who has a podcast that he tapes in his garage devoted to interviews with great comedians. It’s fiction, obviously.

If you do need convincing, the jokes and the guest stars (Illeana Douglas, Denis Leary) seen here should help. (Clever of the writers to realize that oversharing is the perfect vehicle for exposition.) The show arrives on IFC May 3.
