If you love stand-up comedy and enjoy listening to intelligent conversation with America’s funniest men and women on TV and in film, meet Marc Maron.

Maron is one of those guys — like Richard Belzer, Louis CK and the late Robert Schimmel — that comedians themselves turn to to get a serious dose of the funny. He’s outrageous, unrestrained and full of self-loathing — everything you want when dropping serious coin on a night out.


He’s also developed a new world to conquer: podcasting.

Maron is the host and producer of “WTF with Marc Maron.” Actually, it’s “What the Fuck with Marc Maron,” but you can’t write or say that in some places. Here, no problem.

The show is a place for Maron to sit down with some of his closest friends and occasional antagonists or one-time enemies and talk funny. Many of the conversations take place, literally, in his garage, although he’s been taking the show on the road much more often lately, talking to Will Ferrell’s producing partner, Adam McKay, in his office, or visiting with Ray Romano on the set of his new show, “Men of a Certain Age.”

And he’s taken the show on the road in even more literal terms, sharing the stage with an array of regional comics and combining stand-up with conversation, as he did this past week in Austin.

You can subscribe to “What the Fuck with Marc Maron” on your iPhone or other smartphone via the Stitcher app, or visit his website, WTFPod.com.

I’m relatively infantile in my delusions of what’s next for me.”
