Comedian Marc Maron is quickly becoming one of my favorite comedians. He’s been kicking around for a long time and was getting his start when Robin Williams and Sam Kinison were hot young comics tearing up LA. For his podcast WTF, Marc Maron decided to track Robin Williams down for an interview. Williams agreed, and what followed was an hour of pure, genuine honesty and one of the most compelling interviews I’ve ever heard.
Maron is extremely happy with the interview and said:
“No matter what your opinions may be of him he was, and might still be, one of the biggest comedy stars in the world. I was nervous because I didn’t want to get caught up in the Williams riff cyclone and be blown out without getting a real interview– a genuine conversation with him. We sat down for about an hour and he stayed still and focused and open. This is a rare chat with a huge star.”
