marc maronI have preached the brilliance of Netflix for a very long time now whether it be original movies, Original TV Series, documentaries, or even their original comedy specials. Earlier in the summer, Netflix had released a new series entitled G.L.O.W. that is loosely based on the all women’s wrestling show of the 80’s. One of the stars of that show is stand up comedian Marc Maron who is also the host of an amazing podcast called the WTF With Marc Maron. I instantly became a huge fan of his just from watching the show and when I heard that he had a comedy special on Netflix, I had to check it out. So for today’s Tuesday Stand Up, we are checking out his special Marc Maron: Too Real which was recorded at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, CA. In the special, Marc tackles all sorts of topics like Donald Trump, hate groups, making decisions based on how long you have to live, being spiritual/meditating, fun, his father, media, The Rolling Stones, his mother, doctors, The Dave Matthews Band, stupid hats, cats, and so much more.

I knew I wanted to review this one because as I said above, I am a huge fan of his and his work. You don’t have to be smart to watch this comedy special, but it’s a smart comedy special. There is a lot of laughter in the wisdom of the brilliant Marc Maron and only intelligent people will get it for sure. One of my favorite topics that he gets into is when he starts reading his post it notes thoughts that he writes while driving. He gets into this whole conversation about Dave Matthews and I felt instantly like Marc understood my frustration behind that music. You’ll have to watch the special to know what I am referring to, but it was genius. The shtick he does on The Rolling Stones is great as you can see from the pic I provided to you guys in this paragraph. I definitely think you guys should give this special a shot and just check it out. It’s always good to have something different and with all the specials I have watched, he gives me something a little different. I am going to give the special an A for a final grade.
