Well, This is Awkward

Maron’s 11 Most Hilariously Awkward Comedian Cameos

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”

JoeyDiaz

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.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
