On Saturday, February 11, 2023 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, HBO will premiere the stand-up comedy special MARC MARON: FROM BLEAK TO DARK, which will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
The first-ever Marc Maron HBO comedy special features the legendary comedian and podcaster performing in front of a live audience at New York City’s Town Hall. Maron spends an hour discussing age, antisemitism, faith, and the relative merits of cats and children during a pandemic; the conversation is both amusing and very intimate.
In addition, the comic discusses his father’s complex relationship and the loss of his partner in the year 2020.
