Marc Maron knows how to pick some of the best comedians around to add some hilarious banter to his show. Some are crazy, some funny and some downright sad. Here are the top 11 funniest comedians to guest on Maron. In no particular order, of course.

11. Eddie Pepitone, “Desert Road Trip”

Eddie Pepitone is one of the forerunners of self-deprecating humor, and in this episode he doesn’t disappoint. He plays Stu Carbone, a troubled yet engaging has-been comedian who makes Marc rethink his life decisions.

Tig Notaro has a brief, but noteworthy, cameo as Sydney, a concierge at a Lubbock, Texas hotel where Marc is staying. Tig brings a comical and bizarre life to Sydney, saying such memorable things as “I’m not allowed to give out medical advice anymore” that seems perfectly normal in Marc’s world. The biggest problem with having Tig Notaro doing a brief cameo is it makes us want more Tig Notaro.


9. Caroline Rhea, “Nostalgic Sex Buddy

Newly single Marc wants no frills sex? When fellow comic and former flame Caroline Rhea bursts onto the scene it seems like he’s met his perfect match. Sadly for Marc, he gets more then he bargained for.


8. Rachael Harris, “The Yoga Teacher”

Rachael is not only honest-to-goodness cute, she’s also the type of person you want at your next dinner party. Marc and Rachael seemed like they could have had a meaningful relationship but, not unlike Marc, both still want to date emotional terrorists.


7. Joey Diaz, “The Joke”

Joey Diaz plays Bobby Mendez, an old school goodfella who likes the party as much as the punchline. He’s inappropriate but so kindhearted even when he messes up, you can’t help but love him.


6. Chris Hardwick, “Marc On Talking Dead”

Nerdist founder/comedian Chris Hardwick brings out the angst in Marc when he appears as a guest on Talking Dead (in real life, Maron has been a guest on Hardwick’s other show @Midnight several times). The episode creates a feud between Marc and Chris that echoes experiences Marc has had with other younger comedians.

Inauguration Alternative

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Brockmire Premieres April 5 at 10P

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
