Uncensored - Marc Maron (SF90S): Thinky Pain - Little League Psychodrama

Podcast: WTF w/ Marc Maron. Episode 478. Featuring Karen Kilgariff. Download Link: Here. iTunes Link: Here. Official Link: Here.

Comedian Karen Kilgariff (Native) is no longer the person Marc remembers from their days in San Francisco, which is a good thing because back then she was battling some real demons. Karen tells Marc about the twists her career has taken since then and sings some songs to boot. Also, Bob Saget pops into the garage to compare notes on memoir writing with Marc. 

[Two WTFPod posts in like three days? OJ, you’ve lost your touch. FUCK YOU, ME! I love Karen Kilgariff and this is MUST LISTEN material for anybody who’s trying to get cliqued up with the real and raw. Listen to this, you illegitimate children!]

Podcast: WTF w/ Marc Maron. Episode 472. Featuring Laurie Kilmartin. Download Link: Here. iTunes Link: Here. Official Link: Here.

Comedian Laurie Kilmartin (Native) writes dozens of jokes daily for Conan O’Brien, but she has no problem jumping into some serious material in the garage with Marc. Laurie discusses her struggles with an eating disorder, her transition from a road comic to a steady television writer, and the challenges of a single mom working in show business.

[One of my favorite podcasts ever. Extremely personal and necessary. Tons of Bay references and a great prelude to the transcendent Twitter activity from Laurie earlier this year. Catch this one before it goes into the archives.]

Podcast: WTF w/ Marc Maron. Episode 459. Featuring Andy Samberg. Download Link: Here. iTunes Link: Here. Official Link: Here.

Andy Samberg (Native) says he’ll probably be most remembered for “D*** in a Box,” and that’s okay by him. Marc talks with the former SNL cast member to find out about the other things he’ll be remembered for, including his Lonely Island collaborations, his films and his new television show. Plus, Andy tells Marc why pro-wrestling is responsible for his devotion to SNL

[This really cleared up a lot of Lonely Island lore, as well as a delightful porthole into Andy’s goofiness. Good talk.]

Here’s comedian Marc Maron (SF90s) performing the Dead song “Brokedown Palace” and telling a story about an experience he had at a Dead show. The segment includes rehearsal footage and a portion of his live performance. This was shot in San Francisco as part of (SF90s) Greg Behrendt’s “Bring The Rock” series. The musicians that play with Marc (collectively known as Electrik Snowflake) are Dave Gibbs, Grant Lee Phillips and Mark Rivers. Directed and edited by Eric S. Goodfield.

Courting Comedy Spotify Playlist: (10/4/2013)

I’m a little late on this one so here’s some backtracked tracks of Bay Area Comedy Gold available on Spotify:

1. Sean Patton by Holy Fuck Comedy. Sean Patton has a fabulous album — 2012’s Standard Operating Procedures — that’s unfortunately unavailable on Spotify. The only result for Mr. Patton’s persuasion is from the recently released Holy Fuck Comedy compilation and it’s a bona fide doozy. Riffing turns of histrionics with a exuding presence and groove: Patton is on another planet. 

2. Gay Porn by Margaret Cho. Our beloved, native faghag princess has been on the forefront of comedy and culture for as long as I can remember. Her story of her brother’s vengeance-inspired fish bowl defacing still ranks high as a childhood memory. This piece, taken from her SF-housed special “I’m The One That I Want”, offers a great prelude her upcoming shows at the Nob Hill Masonic for her “MOTHER” tour.

3. "Dating Aggressively" by Marc Maron. A modern folk hero, everyman made “made man”, deft self-destructor. However you perceive the Renaissance WTFer, he’s made a prolific niche that includes “This Has To Be Funny” and that’s recently expanded with "Thinky Pain".

4. Chelsea Peretti by Invite Them Up. Chelsea Peretti is another comedian making the Bay Area proud on a consistent basis be it stand-up, writing, sketches, or stealing the show on FOX’s new series, Brooklyn Nine Nine. And I mean STEALING the show. I look forward to her first full-fledge album. 

5. Smile by Rory Scovel. I was in the room at this show’s mirror. In the vault is a version of Dilation, performed at the San Francisco Punch Line in 2011, with a loud comedian/blogger billowing with laughter. Nevertheless, Rory Scovel’s Dilation ranks as one of my favorite albums, period, made even sweeter by its forging close to home. 

On Monday October 7th, Marc Maron (SF90s) Premieres “Thinky Pain” on Netflix. Click the video for a dollop. [via LaughSpin]
