    Marc Maron: From Bleak to Dark


    I just had a big fucked up loss, 10 years after my last big fucked up loss. Maron does his thing so well its usually harder to see the throughline of vulnerability throughout his sets, but in this one it is palpable, probably uncomfortably so to some, but that adds to the comedic tension. It's also new territory for his voice, which is a sad blessing. I, the viewer, was just there with him, rapt. The dark joke was just what I needed, one week later. Perfect. Amen. More.

    I was really wondering about the format of this for a while but enjoying the ride. A ton of small, dirty jokes and good crowdwork that made for fun storytelling even when the content wasn't for me (I need to stop putting this disclaimer in, there is no comedian who is like "my content is Rachel's soul content, that's not the point), then jeez SOCKED with the coda. The audience shot! The callback! The WeeBey-OOOOHHHH of it all. Pathos.

    Watching this with slightly less passive stress in 2021 is a good idea. Releasing puzzle media in 2020 when there's a puzzle media death cult infecting American politics is fraught, and people are tired. Nevertheless, this one is not overly puzzly (how many "levels" in Inception? Time in this case is only bidirectional at least) and I actually found the emotional payoff to be much higher than the usual Nolan fare? Ex: I want to know more about the characters…

    Bad straight Peter Thiel cosplay at best. Tailoring worse than I remembered. These tropes write themselves.
