Get to know the real Marc Maron from the IFC TV Maron by going “Inside Maron’s Garage”

IFC’s Maron returns for its second season tonight.

Maron remains very quasi-autobiographical in an almost The Newsroom way, re-enacting the recent past travails of stand-up comedian and podcaster Marc Maron and spinning them in heightened and colorful ways for the sake of a TV situation-comedy universe.

So it’s nice to see the real Maron here inside his real garage (not the loving fictional version built for the TV series) reflecting on his real life.

“Inside Maron’s Garage” includes six webisodes.

But first, for #TBT, here is my video shot inside Maron’s garage during the recording of WTF with Marc Maron, Episode #26, back in November 2009.
