Waiting for the punch : words to live by from the WTF podcast by Marc Maron( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the beloved and wildly popular podcast WTF with Marc Maron comes a book of intimate, hilarious, and life changing conversations with some of the funniest, and most important people in the world like you've never heard them before. [Waiting for the Punch features stories and thoughts of such luminaries as Amy Schumer, Mel Brooks, Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Sir Ian McKellen, Lorne Michaels, Judd Apatow, Lena Dunham, Jimmy Fallon, RuPaul, Louis CK, David Sedaris, Bruce Springsteen, and President Obama.] This book is not simply a collection of these interviews; it is something more wondrous: a running narrative of the world's most recognizable names working through the problems, doubts, joys, triumphs, and failures we all experience. With each chapter covering a different topic--parenting, childhood, relationships, sexuality, success, failures and more--Punch becomes a sort of everyman's guide to life. Barack Obama candidly discusses the challenges of the presidency, and the bittersweet moments of seeing your children grow up. Amy Schumer recounts the pain of her parents' divorce. Molly Shannon uproariously remembers the time she and her best friend hopped a plane from Ohio to New York City when they were twelve on a dare. Amy Poehler dishes on why just because you become a parent doesn't mean you have to like anybody else's kids but your own. Bruce Springsteen expounds on the dual nature of desperation to both motivate and devastate. Full of stories that are at once laugh-out loud funny, heartbreakingly honest, joyous, tragic and powerful, Waiting for the Punch is a book to be read from cover to cover, and it is also one to return to again and again."--Jacket

"Call me lucky tells the story of Barry Crimmins, a beer-swilling, politically outspoken and whip-smart comic whose efforts in the 70s and 80s fostered the talents of the next generation of standup comedians. But beneath Crimmins' gruff, hard drinking, curmudgeonly persona lay an undercurrent of rage stemming from his long-surpressed and horrific abuse as a child, a rage that eventually found its way out of the comedy clubs and into the political arena"--Container

Attempting normal by Marc Maron( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NATIONAL BESTSELLER People make a mess. Marc Maron was a parent-scarred, angst-filled, drug-dabbling, love-starved comedian who dreamed of a simple life: a wife, a home, a sitcom to call his own. But instead he woke up one day to find himself fired from his radio job, surrounded by feral cats, and emotionally and financially annihilated by a divorce from a woman he thought he loved. He tried to heal his broken heart through whatever means he could find?minor-league hoarding, Viagra addiction, accidental racial profiling, cat fancying, flying airplanes with his mind?but nothing seemed to work. It was only when he was stripped down to nothing that he found his way back. Attempting Normal is Marc Maron's journey through the wilderness of his own mind, a collection of explosively, painfully, addictively funny stories that add up to a moving tale of hope and hopelessness, of failing, flailing, and finding a way. From standup to television to his outrageously popular podcast, WTF with Marc Maron, Marc has always been a genuine original, a disarmingly honest, intensely smart, brutally open comic who finds wisdom in the strangest places. This is his story of the winding, potholed road from madness and obsession and failure to something like normal, the thrillingly comic journey of a sympathetic f***up who's trying really hard to do better without making a bigger mess. Most of us will relate. Praise for Attempting Normal "I laughed so hard reading this book." ?David Sedaris "Funny . . . surprisingly deep . . . laced with revelatory insights." ?Los Angeles Times "Superb . . . A reason that [it] is a superior example of an overcrowded genre?the comedian memoir?is Mr. Maron's hardheaded approach to his history, the wisdom of experience." ? The New York Times "Marc Maron is a legend because he is both a great comic and a brilliant mind. Attempting Normal is a deep, hilarious megashot of feeling and truth as only this man can administer." ?Sam Lipsyte Praise for Marc Maron and WTF "The stuff of comedy legend." ? Rolling Stone "Marc Maron is a startlingly honest, compelling, and hilarious comedian-poet. Truly one of the greatest of all time." ?Louis C.K. "I've known Marc for years and I can tell you first hand that he's passionate, fearless, honest, self-absorbed, neurotic, and screamingly funny." ?David Cross "Revered among his peers . . . raw and unflinchingly honest." ? Entertainment Weekly "Devastatingly funny." ? Los Angeles Times "For a comedy nerd, this show is nirvana." ?Judd Apatow From the Hardcover edition
