This May, get set to see IFC’s new season of Maron. The hit show follows Mark Maron, host of the WTF Podcast, through life as he attempts to grow as a man and all his stumbles along the way. Mark is the creator, executive producer, and writer of the show, and he’s playing no games with this season’s guests.
Season two features almost every big name in comedy you can think of. Mark will be joined by Bill Burr, David Cross, Chris Hardwick, Moshe Kasher, Rachael Harris, Michael Ian Black, Johnny Knoxville, Dave Koechner, Conan O’Brien, Andy Richter, Rob Riggle, Sarah Silverman, and Tom Kenny, yeah that’s right, the voice of Spongebob Squarepants. The scary thing is, that’s not even the whole list. Maron is truly doing its best to pack the world of comedy into this show.
With one of the best writers in the game and a line up like this, it seems all the ingredients are in place to make season two a slam dunk. However, like any show, there is no such thing as a guaranteed hit… but this looks like pretty darn close to one to me. Look out for the season two premiere on May 8th at 10pm on IFC. And if you haven’t seen season one, get yourself educated on Netflix.
