If you only remember this guy as that screaming weirdo from Police Academy, you have some catching up to do.
As if having one amazing talent wasn’t enough…
As you may have heard, we are bringing comedian and podcaster Marc Maron to the small screen and we couldn’t be more excited. The show, “Maron,” debuts this spring with ten episode all based on Marc’s life and, of course, his successful WTF podcast (which you should just subscribe to already.) Each half hour episode […]
We chat up the comic director about returning for the “Academy” reboot and what else is in store.
