Marc Maron's Internal Monologue at the Comic Strip

On stand-up comic Marc Maron's live internet talk show Maron V. Seder with Sam Seder, Maron occasionally gives us a glimpse into his psyche. A particularly revealing video aired last week of Marc's return to the Comic Strip, a NYC club where he started out.

(NOTE: Marc corrected him later regarding Vinnie Brand. He doesn't run Rascals, rather the Stress Factory in New Brunswick, New Jersey).

Besides the excellent Maron V. Seder, what else is Marc up to?

On Saturday, January 3rd, he'll be debuting his new show Scorching The Earth at The Green Room at 45 Bleecker in the East Village of New York City. Tickets are on-sale now. The show "explores the concepts of love, need, hate, sex, anger, as well as the choice between humility and bitterness. And cats...lots of cats." Marc continue:

When you’re an asshole and your wife leaves you, there’s a part of you that thinks, ‘Good for her. That took a lot of guts to leave me. I’m a little jealous. I’ve been trying to leave me for years. I had her convinced that this intense mixture of neediness, hostility and fear of abandonment was passion. Now, the jig is up.
