"I've been doing standup half my life," says the comic. "Now that the show is taking off, I feel good about myself; my standup is just strong right now." And while Maron admits that his personality is "a little neurotic, a little manic and a little angry sometimes," that has eased up lately. "If you listen to my podcast, you know exactly who I am. I have a disposition that's like the people I'm attracted to for the show: sensitive, thoughtful malcontents."
After his tour wraps up, Maron will focus on a new TV series set to air next year on IFC; he'll also finish a memoir, due in 2013.
His stint in Denver includes four shows at the downtown Comedy Works, 1226 15th Street: today at 8 and 10 p.m., and tomorrow at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $25; call 303-595-3637 or go to www.comedyworks.com.
