I always thought that geek is the new cool and have modified my lifestyle accordingly. However, since everything new is well forgotten old, whatever Woody Allen and Larry David exemplified some time ago seems to be coming back. This podcast review is of a neurotic character by the name of Marc Maron and his podcast WTF: With Marc Maron.
Maron is no sweetheart. He is a no holds barred straight shooter comedian, who does stand-up comedy, used to host several radio and TV shows and now sits in his garage/studio and conducts interviews with fellow comedians/movie stars/TV personalities.
Maron started in stand-up, then moved on to TV, then to radio and finally to the podcasts. Wikipedia lists his genre as “Alternative comedy, Cringe humor, Black comedy, Satire, Observational comedy” and boy is that an understatement! He would frequently discuss issues of personal nature (failed marriages, relationships with parents, sex, drugs and his genitalia), but would do that in an extremely uproarious neurotic way that does not make me cringe at all. But to each his/her own.
