A “comedian’s comedian,” Marc Maron built his career by doing standup comedy in the ‘90s, radio in the 2000s, and podcasting in the 2010s. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Maron was a regular on the underground comedy circuit in New York City during the ‘90s, and while specials for HBO and Comedy Central would follow, his relatively small fan base was evenly split between standup comedy fanatics and fellow comedians. It was the former that would help the comedian during the 2000s as he hosted his own radio show on the liberal radio network Air America, while it was his strong ties to the latter that would supply the big payoff when WTF with Marc Maron launched in September of 2009. The podcast would feature fascinating interviews with Maron’s friends, associates, and admirers who just happened to be folks like Robin Williams, Conan O'Brien, Ira Glass, Louis C.K., and others. Maron was riding high on the podcast’s success when he released his debut for the Comedy Central record label, This Has to Be Funny, in 2011. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
