Marc Maron to premiere his new TV show at Moontower!

You already love him for the grouchy, hysterical back-and-forth he does with his expertly chosen guests on the WTF podcast. You love him for his real-talk, open-book stage persona when he does stand up shows around the country. And you know you’d love to hang out with him, eating barbecue, drinking beer and talking shit about celebrities.

So why not let the man who’s seen it all and done even more take over your television set, too? Luckily, IFC television is putting Marc Maron on TV. FINALLY.



We’re ecstatic to announce that you’ll get a chance to see his new show, Maron, at the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival in a special advanced badges-only screening at the Stateside at the Paramount theater on April 26th, with Maron himself in attendance.

You already knew he was going to be at the Festival, performing standup on April 24th. Now you get to also watch him watch himself on the big screen at the Stateside on the 26th before he then does a live recording of WTF later that night with a live audience.

Watch or listen (or now SEE) the man doing his thing, and you’ll get what millions of comedy fans across the country have been talking about for years now. He’s a damn genius, and a sober, startling voice of reason in a vapid, broken universe.

So is Marc Maron now going to become the new King of All Media? There is an opening for it, I suppose, after Howard Stern traded that title for a chair at the hosting table on that grating summertime reality show, America’s Got Dancing Ventriloquist Magicians.

Judge for yourself at Maron’s three Moontower shows. Don’t get left out of these special events that everyone will be talking about. Just make sure you get a badge if you want to do so. (Hey, it’s cheaper than subscribing to cable and only maybe getting the IFC channel…)

And if you’re not already a WTF fan, WTF is your problem?

March 3rd at the Stateside: Nerdist Podcast Live! Chris Hardwick w/ Jonah Ray & Matt Mira (2 Shows)

Chris Hardwick

Chris Hardwick, stand-up comedian and self-proclaimed nerd (well “others-proclaimed,” too), is perhaps our nation’s premier proponent and purveyor of geek & nerd lifestyle with his copious endeavors for Nerdist Industries and beyond. His website Nerdist.com is a trove of all manner of nerd culture and his tip-top-ranked comedy podcast (also available for free on iTunes) is a consistently interesting listen. Chris recently authored the humorous self-help book The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (In Real Life) for his fellow “creative obsessives” to harness their particular attributes for the imminent Nerd uprising. Think this is a laughing matter? Well it is, but with 1.6 million Twitter followers, do not be surprised by Hardwick’s attainment of his hopes that “…will one day bring destruction and ruin to the mouth-breathing, jock masses… paving the way for a world where video games are free, Cheetos are currency and robot concubines vigorously endeavor to sate our sexual thirsts.”

Chris just taped a new Comedy Central Special (airdate TBD), and he is a writer for Wired magazine, can be seen on G4’S “Attack of the Show” and BBC America’s “The Nerdist” TV specials. Along with Mike Phirman, Chris is one-half of the musical comedy duo “Hard ‘n Phirm” (and Chris is producing an animated pilot, “Hard ‘n Phirm’s Musical Timehole” for IFC). He is regularly featured on “Chelsea Lately,” “The Soup”, and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Chris is also the voice of Otis the Cow on Nickelodeon’s “Back at the Barnyard.”

Expect an entertaining night of laughs, brainiac debate, enthusiastic discussions, and pure podcastic nerd love.
