Wyatt Cenac and Marc go way back. But despite two WTF appearances, Wyatt never sat down with Marc for a full conversation in the garage until now. Wyatt talks about the loss of his father, the struggles with his mother, his pursuit of SNL that led him to the wrong side of the country, and his unexpected arrival at (and departure from) The Daily Show. This episode is sponsored by Review on Comedy Central, BoJack Horseman on Netflix, The Jim Gaffigan Show on TV Land and Zip Recruiter.
Kevin Allison talks about the things he’s not prepared to say in front of his mom, Sam Lipsyte reveals how Marc inspired one of the characters in his latest novel, Tom Scharpling has a hard time with the band Rush, Horatio Sanz remembers what it was like to be arrested, and Wyatt Cenac wonders what he needs to do to get Marc to resent him. It’s live WTF from Brooklyn! This episode is sponsored by NTSF:SD:SUV, the new series on Adult Swim.
Wyatt Cenac from The Daily Show and Marc come up with a solution to the partisan bickering on cable news. It involves bloodletting. Plus, Dr. Maron is back for some more wellness tips and parenting advice. And Marc invents a phrase that he hopes you’ll be repeating over and over again.
