This Has To Be Funny
Label: Comedy Central
Following years of toiling in obscurity and with scant few appearances on TV, comedian Marc Maron finally gained recognition for his lauded WTF With Marc Maron podcast in which he interviews other comics. This Has to Be Funny is his fourth album and showcases his almost endless self-absorption, lack of confidence and total disregard for modern society. Maron's magic trick is in the way his routines expose not just his humanity, but all of ours. It also helps that the dude really knows how to make people laugh.
