Marc Maron on Internet Trolls, the Underdog, and His Favorite Comedians Right Now

It's been a big year for Marc Maron. The lifelong comedian who struggled in show business for decades has moved increasingly into the spotlight since 2009 when he launched WTF with Marc Maron -- a biweekly podcast recorded in his garage tackling raw, intimate, and unfiltered interviews with some of the most interesting names in entertainment including, Louis C.K., Patton Oswalt, Conan O'Brian, Chelsea Handler, and more.

With almost 400 WTF episodes under his belt, Maron has just released a new autobiography, Attempting Normal, as well as his pilot series, Maron, on IFC.

Now the comedian is headed back on the road with new material.

Before his upcoming show at Stand Up Live on Thursday, June 6, we caught up with Maron to discuss his comedy, criticism, and the people who make him laugh out loud today.
