Marc Maron Talks Up New IFC Series

Fun interview from the SXSW Samsung bloggers’ lounge in Austin by What’s Trending host Shira Lazar. Thanks to her opening compliments and willingness to drink from the same plastic cup, guest Marc Maron wasn’t sure if this was an interview or a date.

Around the eight-and-a-half-minute mark, Maron tells Lazar about his upcoming IFC show Maron, an offshoot of his podcast success debuting in May. “If you haven’t had your fill of me, there’s more me coming in a different format,” the comedian joked. “It’s all I have.”

The scripted half-hour series is Maron’s version of Louie, mining podcast guests for double-TV show duty. The king of all Highland Park media also had kind words for actor Ken Jeong, who helped out with the IFC pilot presentation.
