But he and Marc discover in the middle of their conversation that they actually share a comedy connection going back decades. They also talk about his Broadway career and his big break playing David Letterman. Plus, Maria Bamford stops by to talk about her new Netflix special and explain why she's taking Improv 101 classes at the UCB. This episode is sponsored by Grow and Make and Stamps.com.
We go back into the WTF Shoebox Vault to find another unaired pilot for The Marc Maron Show in Los Angeles from 2006. This time the guest was comedian Maria Bamford, the sidekick was still Jim Earl, and the investigative reporter was Eddie Pepitone. The only people who ever heard this were the people who made it, plus one angry program director who didn't want to put it on the air. This special presentation is sponsored by Squatty Potty.

Marc’s on the road with the very funny Maria Bamford. Can they solve the world’s problems during an hour-long car ride from Lake Arrowhead? Maybe not, but they’ll definitely talk a lot about comedy and maybe even help each other through some relationship issues.
Maria Bamford! Chris Hardwick! Whitney Cummings! Doug Benson! Jim Earl! Eddie Pepitone! It’s a show so big, only the stage of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles could contain it. Which is weird because it’s not a very big stage. Taped in front of a live audience on Nov. 15, 2009.
