Comedian Marc Maron is no stranger to landing big guests for his WTF podcast. Everyone from Jon Hamm to Sir Ian McKellen to Keith Richards has graced the Maron garage, but when President Obama dropped by, some significant prep work needed to be done. The actor shared the story behind WTF’s biggest, most unexpected guest to late night host James Corden on The Late Late Show. Along with shutting down the neighborhood block and tenting off Maron’s house, Obama’s security team requested that snipers be stationed on the roof of the house across the street. (Fortunately, Maron’s retired neighbor was nothing if not enthusiastic for the opportunity.) But that still didn’t keep the comedian from fretting about his modest, two-bedroom abode and a bathroom door that isn’t in total working order.
Watch Maron recall the time the most powerful person on the planet sat in his garage.
