Marc Maron’s New IFC Series Will Make You Want To Shoot Yourself In The Face

The long-awaited autobiographical comedy Maron has finally arrived on IFC, bringing all the anxiety, self-loathing and standup comedy wisdom of this podcasting pioneer into the homes of normal folks (i.e. non-comedy nerds), who were surely forced to watch its premiere by their sycophantic boyfriends. And I gotta say…it’s not great. As a fan of the WTF podcast, this show felt like a lazy Xerox of Marc Maron’s on-stage and online persona, seemingly rushed to production by overconfident disciples who assumed that his naked misery would translate to something interesting on screen. It doesn’t.
