On the small screen, Maron's critically acclaimed half-hour scripted series, Maron, aired for four seasons on IFC. The show was created, written, and produced by Maron, who also directed episodes in seasons 2 and 3, and was nominated for a WGA Award in 2016. Maron has also performed guest starring roles in Girls, Louie, and Joe Swanberg's Easy, and can be seen in the feature films Get A Job and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates as well as the forthcoming Netflix original series GLOW.
Maron's first book, The Jerusalem Syndrome: My Life as a Reluctant Messiah, was based on his solo show. He also penned a collection of essays titled Attempting Normal that made The New York Times' best seller list. His first three albums, Not Sold Out, Tickets Still Available and Final Engagement are comedy cult classics, and his release, This Has To Be Funny was named #1 Comedy Album of 2011 by LaughSpin.com. Maron released his stand-up special, Thinky Pain, on Netflix in 2013 and as an album in 2014. His most recent special, More Later, premiered on Epix in 2015 and is also available on Hulu, Amazon Prime, and on wtfpod.com.
Maron's podcast, WTF with Marc Maron, premiered in September 2009 and features compelling monologues and interviews with iconic personalities such as Conan O'Brien, Terry Gross, Robin Willaims, Keith Richards, Ben Stiller, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lorne Michaels and President Barack Obama. It has become a worldwide phenomenon, averaging 7 million downloads each month, with nearly 330 million lifetime downloads. WTF regularly hits #1 on the iTunes charts and was named the #1 Comedy Podcast by LA Weekly, as well as The AC Club. It has been deemed as a "must-listen" by Vanity Fair and The New York Times, and, in 2014, Slate named WTF's two-part episode with Louis C.K. the "best podcast episode of all time."
In 2012, TIME Magazine included Maron in its short list of the 100 Most Influential People and WTF was nominated for two Comedy Central 2012 Comedy Awards: Best Comedy Podcast and Best Comedy App. Maron also travels the world performing sold-out, stand-up comedy shows and delivering lectures on podcasting, technology, and his journey through comedy. In 2011, Maron was given the honor of delivering the Keynote Address at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and he has more recently spoken at Princeton, USC, and at the 2015 Podcast Movement Festival and AdTech.
Maron currently resides in Los Angeles.
