On the occasion of Marc Maron’s 500th episode (and 100 million downloads!) of his WTF podcast and second season starring in the semi-autobiographical IFC comedy, Maron, CBS This Morning profiled his late blooming into comedy stardom at age 50.
And here’s the kicker:
“You know, when I look back on all the things I did. I don’t have any regrets. But I also know that maybe I wasn’t ready for whatever was going on. There was some stroke of cosmic timing in that — out of desperation, I turned to podcasting. Things aligned, so now I can be the comic I want to be and sell some tickets in some markets, and now I got a TV show on the air. And the one thing I can say, whether I changed myself or whether it was a series of events, is that, because I was humbled, and because I let go of a lot of expectation, I was truly ready to show up for everything that’s happened.”
