Eddie Murphy Hosting Saturday Night Live

Eddie Murphy is slated to make his triumphant return to stand-up comedy at Netflix sometime in the future, but before that, we’ll see him try his hand at stand-up again for a big charity comedy festival being put together to benefit Feeding America food banks during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Feeding America Comedy Festival is being put together by comedian-turned-media-magnate Byron Allen and his Entertainment Studios banner along with the folks at Funny or Die. The three-hour event will be taking donations while audiences enjoy stand-up sets from some of the biggest names in comedy. Along with Eddie Murphy, the show will include Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Billy Crystal, Tiffany Haddish, Kenan Thompson, Howie Mandel, Marc Maron, and many more. Read More »

Marc Maron End Times Fun Trailer

Marc Maron brings his own brand of “everything is terrible” comedy to his latest stand-up special, Marc Maron: End Times Fun. As you can probably surmise from the title, Maron is going to be touching on the doom and gloom of our current era, where everything constantly feels like it’s on fire and/or underwater. That may not sound like a recipe for comedy, but Maron is a pro, so he’s got this. Watch the Marc Maron: End Times Fun trailer below.

Marc Maron response

I hope you’re not sick of Joker yet, because this movie is being bandied about as a serious Oscar contender, which means we have another four months of talking about it from several different angles – and that includes diving into hot-button comments from its cast and director.

Filmmaker Todd Phillips made waves recently by essentially claiming that “woke culture” is ruining comedy, but longtime comedian (and Joker cast member) Marc Maron strongly disagrees. Read Maron’s dismissal of Phillips’ viewpoint below.

GLOW Season 4

Those Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are heading into their last match. Netflix brought some bittersweet news to the table today with the announcement of a fourth season of GLOW ordered. But unfortunately, the fourth season will also be the last for this wrestling comedy starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, and Marc Maron. Read More »

As a Lynn Shelton movie, Sword of Trust is both familiar and an oddity. The dramedy has a focused yet free-wheeling narrative similar to Shelton’s other heavily-improvised movies, including Your Sister’s Sister and Laggies, but it’s the first movie of hers that could arguably be considered a partial thriller. There are more guns and swords in Sword of Trust than the usual Lynn Shelton film.

Caught directly in the middle of the drama over a Civil War-era sword is a pawnshop owner by the name of Mel, who’s played by renowned comedian and podcaster Marc Maron. Shelton first directed Maron in his IFC comedy series, which they followed up with his Netflix special, Too Real, and now Sword of Trust. The two similarly intimate storytellers have proven to be a compatible combo over the last few years. Recently, Maron told us about being directed by Shelton, how they made his comedy special truly intimate, continuing to grow as an actor, and of course, Van Halen frontman Diamond David Lee Roth.

Joker Movie Story - Marc Maron

I think by now we all assumed the Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix wouldn’t be a traditional comic book film. But in case there was any lingering doubt, co-star Marc Maron (above right) has provided some insight into what to expect. According to Maron, who plays a character named Ted Marco, the Todd Phillips-directed film is less a comic book film, and the Joker movie story more of a character study of a mentally ill person…who eventually turns into the Joker.

young david bowie movie

With Bohemian Rhapsody cleaning up at the box office (and earning Oscar nominations to boot), it was only a matter of time before a David Bowie movie reared its glittery head. Stardust is that movie, and it will star Johnny Flynn as the young Bowie making his first visit to America in 1971. Marc Maron will also appear in the film as Bowie’s publicist, and Jena Malone will play Bowie’s wife at the time, Angie. But can anyone really capture the essence of David Bowie (other than Tilda Swinton)?
