About Marc Maron
Marc David Maron was born on September 27, 1963 and is an American stand-up comedian, podcaster, writer, and actor with an estimated net worth of $2 million. Marc Maron was born and raised in New Jersey in his early life, but lived in both Alaska and New Mexico growing up. He began performing stand-up comedy in the early 1990s as part of New York’s burgeoning alternative comedy scene.
In 2004, he began hosting a morning show called Morning Sedition on the left-leaning Air America syndicated radio network. He ended his run as host in late 2005 when his contract was not renewed.
Maron hosted a second radio show, The Marc Maron Show, in 2006. It was canceled after six months. In 2009, Maron stared his own podcast, WTF with Marc Maron, which quickly became one of the most successful comedy podcasts on the internet.
Maron has written and performed two successful one-man shows: The Jerusalem Syndrome, which ran off-Broadway in 2000, and Scorching the Earth, with which he toured in 2009.
In 2004, Maron began co-hosting the morning talk show Morning Sedition (alongside Mark Riley) during the early days of the syndicated political talk radio network Air America. The show played like a satire of morning radio for Air America’s left-leaning listeners and was popular on the station, but Maron’s contract was not renewed in December of 2004 due to differences of opinion with one of the station executives.
In 2006, Maron became host of his own nightly show, The Marc Maron Show, for a “progressive talk” station in L.A. The show was canceled after six months.
In 2009, Maron and Air America host Sam Seder began hosting a live web series for Air America called Break Room Live, but that show, too, was canceled after roughly six months as Air America basically went bankrupt and eventually dissolved.
In September 2009, the second act of Maron’s career began as he found tremendous success as host of his own comedy podcast, WTF with Marc Maron. Recorded at his home in California, the twice-weekly show typically features Maron ranting about a new topic at the start of each show before bringing on a guest to be interviewed (usually a comedian, but some actors have appeared on the show as well).
Maron has twice confronted Carlos Mencia on charges of stealing jokes, while Louis C.K. actually teared up during a conversation about how their friendship had fallen apart. Prop comedian Gallagher actually walked off the show in anger over Maron’s interview. The podcast has become one of the most popular comedy podcasts on the internet and should be required listening for any true fan of stand-up comedy.
Maron co-starred in the Netflix comedy series GLOW, from 2017 to 2019. He also had a minor role in 2019’s Joker. As of 2023, Marc Maron’s net worth is estimated to be around $2 million.
