After spending some time over at Netflix, Marc Maron has inked a deal to record his next stand-up comedy special with HBO and the recording is happening in New York next month. Maron is scheduled to tape the special at Town Hall in New York on Thursday December 8th. It will be the comedian’s 5th special.
The hour of new material will not air on the HBO and HBO Max platforms until 2023 but if you want to wrap up your 2022 with a solid hour of great comedy, you can get tickets right now to attend the live taping in NYC.
Nina Rosenstein, Executive Vice President, HBO Programming quote: “We’re long-time fans of everything Marc does, from his iconic podcast to his fearless stand-up. His new hour is deeply personal and darkly funny. This long overdue collaboration is an extra special one for us.” Maron added, “I’ve wanted to do an HBO special my entire life. Literally my entire life. Not since I started doing comedy, but since I started watching comedy as a kid. It was where the real comedy happened. Always. I’m honored to be working with them. It’s been a hard few years and the hour I’ve been working on is very provocative and personal. I trust HBO to present it properly because they have the courage to have a point of view as a network. AND they get the deep funny.”
No date for the special premiere has been revealed yet.
