Marc presents a special audio version of the first chapter of Waiting for the Punch: Words to Live by from the WTF Podcast. This chapter features thirty WTF guests talking with Marc about growing up. Hear from Conan O'Brien, Sir Ian McKellen, Kevin Hart, Mel Brooks, RuPaul Charles, Jim Gaffigan, John Oliver, Maria Bamford, Paul Scheer, Norm Macdonald, Molly Shannon, John Darnielle, Ahmed Ahmed, Dave Attell, Russell Peters, Joe Mande, Ron Funches, Allie Brosh, Gillian Jacobs, The Amazing Johnathan, Jon Glaser, Amy Schumer, Wyatt Cenac, Aimee Mann, Tom Arnold, Bruce Springsteen, Leslie Jones, Terry Gross, Dan Harmon, and President Barack Obama.
John Oliver was one of the first guests ever on WTF, but he’s never sat down for a full one-on-one in The Garage. Marc and John brave an ungodly early hour of the day to talk about John’s relationship with his homeland, his path to The Daily Show and his childhood dream that will go unrealized. This episode is sponsored by Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC and by Adam and Eve.
The Daily Show’s John Oliver tells Marc why the British think they’re so cool. We’ll also find out what he’s doing on NBC’s new series Community and why he’s finding it easy to stay funny in the Age of Obama. Plus, Marc calls his Dad to get advice about his future, Matthew and Marc have a texting problem, and Marc looks deep within his soul to find his inner xenophobe.
