WTF with Marc MaronWebsite |
An intimate, cerebral podcast exploring emotional and existential connections in comedy.
A pioneer of the Alternative Comedy scene in the 1980s and '90s, charismatically neurotic stand-up comedian Marc Maron has seen a significant rise in fame and critical acclaim as a result of his twice-weekly podcast, WTF with Marc Maron. The show has been called the Inside the Actor's Studio of Comedy, no doubt because of Maron's insider status as a comedian as well as his tendency to treat every interview as a veritable therapy session. WTF features guests that range from young up-and-coming talent and long-retired comedians to contemporary writers and critically acclaimed actors like Jon Hamm. What makes Maron's podcast particularly unique is the amount of candor between himself and his guests, no matter how prestigious. Consequently, podcast audiences experience the same level of intimacy, gleaning insight into both Maron himself and his guests.
