Marc Maron alongside pals Maria Bamford and Paul F Tompkins will be leading the strong US contingent of the 2011 Melbourne Comedy Festival.
Marc Maron was last here in 2008 doing dates at the Sydney Comedy Store. At that time Marc was hosting the 'Maron V Seder' webcast alongside Sam Seder for Air America Radio which evolved into 'Break Room Live'.
After the dissolution of the network, Marc with his trusty producer Brendan McDonald founded the WTF Podcast. A once humble but now hugely successful endeavor which has raised Maron's profile. With incisive, revealing interviews of some of the biggest and most controversial names of Comedy from Carlos Mencia, Dane Cook, Louis CK, Judd Apatow, Robin Williams and Ben Stiller. Including a host of upcoming, veteran and forgotten comedians.
Closing in on its 200th episode, the show and Maron's voice will be a valuable artifact for comedy lovers for many generations.
