Marc Maron is one of the most influential names in comedy. His WTF Podcast is nothing short of amazing. Take a listen and you’ll know what I mean. In less than a month, he has a new show — Maron — premiering on IFC. The trailer is already up.
As excited as I am to check out his show, which follows in a long line of comedian-created show (Think Louis C.K.), I absolutely loved that biting interview Michael Ian Black conducted with Maron for Gothamist. You can read or listen to the interview here. Since Ian Black and Maron had just taken to Twitter to continue their tense exchanges, the interview has an authentic feel that most in a TV press junket lack.
The interview is so deliciously uneasy, I hope there is a round two or that Michael Ian Black appears on an episode of Maron, which is based on Marc Maron’s life and podcast. That would be genius. IFC, please take note.
