Marc Maron

Marc MaronMarc Maron is a stand up comic, actor, and writer who has appeared in countless clubs, in film, on various TV shows, and off-Broadway and is the author of Broadway Books' "The Jerusalem Syndrome" (based on his one-man show). While a stand-up comic by trade, his performance style is anything but the typical set-up-punchline formula. Maron engages his audience as a storyteller with an intelligence that digs deep into subjects, illuminating common truths that usually go unseen. There is a thought provoking excitement watching Maron take the risks of uncharted territory and riffing on subjects ranging from corporate domination of the planet to why the cooking channel is the only pure television. He always manages to ride that fine lineEngaging his audience as a storyteller, Marc is known for his incisive cultural and political commentary, mystical ruminations, and neurotic insights into human nature. Born in New Jersey and raised in Albuquerque, NM, Marc started his comedy career in the late 1980s in Hollywood, California, as a doorman at the famed stand up venue The Comedy Store. He has since lived in Boston, San Francisco, and New York City, where he co-founded possibly the first alternative comedy series, "Eating It", with friend and comedy star Janeane Garafalo at the Luna Lounge Club. Marc has appeared on just about every TV show that will allow comics, from The Late Show with David Letterman to Bill Maher's fomer show Politically Incorrect to Late Night with Conan O'Brien, where he is a special favorite. Marc lived in NYC until December 2005, moved back to LA and his wife Mishna Wolff. Currently Marc is developing a radio show in LA, together with comedian Jim Earl and producer Brendan McDonald.
