You Made It Weird #14: Marc Maron

What could be weirder than having What The Fuck sit down with What The Heck? Do you really need a description? You’re still reading this, so okay. “The incredible host of WTF sits down to make it weird. The only question is: Will he say “keep it crispy” at the end?”

    I love Pete’s squeals of joy at getting roasted – they have a very Spongebob/Squidward dynamic :) Love it!

  2. Tillburg says:

    Is it weird that this is my foray into WTF? Pete you’re the door to Maron for me. (I’m loving it)

  3. Conner Fields says:

    So yes.

  4. Daniel A says:

    Bit late to Pete Holmes, I honestly resisted listening to YMIW because of his braying donkey laugh. But he does a brilliant Malkovich and he is funny.
    The dynamic between these two is a perfect sado-masochistic relationship. I kept thinking of Little Shop of Horrors, with Maron as the sadistic dentist and Holmes as the pain loving patient. I could listen to Holmes take hits from Maron all day, loved it!

    Pete! I love your show! Its great for comics that are just starting out and trying to get an idea of what to expect. I actually was listening to WTF with Marc Maron before I found your podcast. To be honest, I couldn’t make it through this episode, Maron is just being a straight up bully and it was really annoying. His cynicism was the reason why I just couldn’t listen to his podcast anymore. Also I couldn’t make it through because of all the cheap shots he kept taking at you, you’re a good guy, talented, and hilarious. I’m kind of bummed out that this podcast turned out the way it did.

  6. Melanie Melanie Melanie says:

    I LOVE how Pete reacts to Marc’s quips. It’s so funny.
    He’s like -SQWEEEEE!! HAHAHAHA-
    Oh!! They mention Demetri, my FAVORITE!! Hoorahhh!!
    “I love interrupting you, it’s so validating.” XD

  7. Melanie -I LOVE PETE HOLMES- says:

    I think Pete and Marc have more in common than Marc thinks. “Johnny-32 cooks a mean boot soup.” XDD
    Goodness Pete is so patient. I love him endlessly.
    I agree with Marc, that Pete IS innocent. But that’s a beautiful thing about him. Life DID fuck him – like Everyone – he just chose not to be bitter about it.
    “I over think Everything.” –> THIS IS MY LIFE.

  8. Josh says:

    This is me, looking at you, looking at Marc Maron, looking at you, looking at him, looking through himself, at you, looking at yourself, looking at him…

  9. Wendy says:

    This is definitely my favorite episode so far. I can’t wait for Pete to be on WTF!

  10. Wonderful episode. Pete’s optimism vs. Marc’s pessimism is a joy to listen to.

  11. Nick H says:

    the best!

  12. Misha says:

    This show made me hurt inside in the best way possible. I don’t know how to explain how connected to Marc and Pete I felt during the interview, but I love the show, cause it makes me think about things I wouldn’t normally otherwise. Keep up the good work.

  13. Julia Hays says:

    Marc’s quips toward Pete are so biting, yet so hilarious.

  14. spray-tan says:

    Amazing episode, and some part of how awesome it was is because of Mark taking it upon himself to co-host the show. I’ve listened to dozens of different podcasts, seen Marc Maron on Conan, but have never listened to WTF. I think i have to check it out now if he gets analytical enough to make Pete as excited and nervous as he was in this YMIW.

  15. Eric says:

    YMIW is the becoming the first of the many podcasts I listen to that I HAVE to download and experience on the day it drops–I can’t intentionally delay it as I do with others to savor it and decrease the waiting time for the next episode.

    This one felt atypical, a bit outside the tone of previous episodes. I think Mark hijacked the show a bit. Also disappointed that the discussion of God/spirituality was so perfunctory as that is by far my favorite element of the comedy/sex/God trifecta. Not a bad thing for a one-off but I prefer when Pete is the host and guides the guest to his topics of interest rather than simply letting the conversation go where it will like every other interview-based podcast–that’s what makes YMIW its own show and not a WTF rip-off (I know that claim was made facetiously, or at least partially facetiously, but you know what I mean). Keep it broiled.

  16. three toes of fury says:

    Pete…you rock!…keep up the amazing work and giggle-inducing podcast.

  17. Jennifer says:

    “Angry Comedy Dad” is the funniest/most accurate description of Marc. Love it!

  18. Matt says:

    What a great episode to listen to, you guys have to get together again. Oh Angry Comic Dad we are just seeking your aggressive approval.

  19. imabug says:

    marc maron is a boring comic. it is terribly obvious, he read lenny bruce, my god, gelman does him funnier, with actually current references. also gelman knows it’s a farce. if there were any currently living ramones, i bet maron wants to be one of them.

    on some level, no one will know a maron joke, nor care. btw, listen to the wtf w/ michael ian black. he is only mildly nice to people anymore because he is making money.

  20. Michele says:

    I dunno, I love Pete’s laugh. He really doesn’t hold back his gleefulness and it always makes me smile or giggle.

    This is my favorite episode so far. Loooove listening to Marc Maron.

  21. Abbey says:

    HAHAHA. LOVED the end. Didn’t think Maron would say it either (or without making fun of you first at least!)

    You are so god damn delightful, Pete. Keep it cooked.

  22. Manuel Vazquez says:

    wasn’t there supposed to be a jake and amir ymw?

  23. Kelly says:

    Pete Holmes rocks.

  24. Bill Power says:

    Very interesting show, but Pete’s laugh is like fingernails on a chalkboard. It makes me real uncomfortable. And by uncomfortable I mean it makes me want to cover my ears. Good interview, though.

  25. josh says:

    A great meeting of minds. It felt like Mark was sitting on Pete Holmes’s chest and tickling him for an hour and a half.

    How long until we hear all the “keep it crispy” bits edited back to back?

  26. “keep it crispy” is so dummmb

    Otherwise the podcast is a lot of fun.

  27. Rompe says:

    i love that this podcast is now the ‘shit on pete holmes hour’. love it!

  28. Mark says:

    Pete, ever since Nick Kroll called you out on your explosive laughter, it seems like you are trying to contain it. I think the cough-sneeze-laugh is weirder than the bellowing laughter.

    Great show, by the way. I download every week!

  29. Amy says:

    My first listen. Loved it! Thank you.

  30. Janelle says:

    Great podcast, as always, Pete! Er, I mean, Johnny 32…

  31. InternJack says:

    That’s the great thing about a circus. It’s got the magic of magic and the built in biological verbal response of comedy.

    Haha ah ha ha ha wooohhh.

  32. Jessica says:

    WHAT A GREAT EPISODE!!!!!! Pete and Marc have such a great dynamic!!!
