    This is the difference between millennials and whatever generation you say came before them. I was born in 1979 and this sounds like everything up until I was in my early twenties and while I am sometimes grouped into the millennial generation there are other millennials that had the internet as long as they can remember and smart phones when they were in middle school. I remember my family getting an answering machine when I was about 10 and it was only for my dad's business line for the first year or so. Not saying anything bad about millenials, just saying most of us born in 1979 are not part of that generation.

    I now realize why it took so long for Marc to make it in comedy: He was never funny to begin with.

    Marc has always been my favorite podcastian...his late night appearances, especially early on, and especially with early Conan, were always.., Manic.... Panicked. and disturbingly charming. Now albiet the nature of these panels often, in my guestimation, can sometimes paint Maron maybe just a pinch more rushed than his usual off the cuff, but calmly on the stool, inward jabbing comic-self.. but this quick little appearance on Mr. Sarcastisaurass REX-himself Stephen Colbert. was in my eyes , really just F***ing perfect. Maron has the balls to tackle arguably some of the most borderlineishhy-hacky-premise-eeey subject manor that normally could seem obvious or trite if coming from a lesser practiced stand-up. but Maron's slick, purposeful bouncing betwence the "aging old crank" and the "revisionist history-fried documentarion" is just pure comic gold. I'm going to make a pretty obvious prediction...I think he has another hour special festering in him, that should very well cement him a sure spot in the proverbial... Stand-Up Comedian...- Hall of Fame.. because you see kids...Boomer surely Lives!

    Sort of a similar joke to Pete Holmes “Tom Petty” bit, but great & hilarious on its own. Both jokes are great. 👍

  • daniel stewart
    daniel stewart 27 days ago

    The gist of his argument is true. We have allowed electronics take control of our lives. When i was younger after the evening meal the kids would either do homework or go outside and play games, like hide & seek or kick the can, and the parents would usually go out and sit on the porch. They'd look around and see other people and walk over and actually talk with each other.
    In our neighborhood everyone knew each other. They kept watch and when a stranger showed up people knew about it. Nowadays most people don't even know who lives in the house next to theirs.
    Sad to say when i was real young not everyone in the neighborhood had a phone or even a television. Plus the TV only had 2 channels.
    Now if the interweb goes down my wife and kid lose it. They don't have a clue what to do except bitch and call around to see why it's not working. They're like vampires they cant go out in the sun.

    Pete Holmes has a very similar bit about not knowing something for a while, before the internet. In his case, it was "where is Tom Petty from?"

    I have been listening Marc Maron ever since he had a radio show on Air America. Love his outlook and POV regarding current events. We are also the same age, so when he gets into his shtick about the way thing were "back then" it always puts a smile on my face.

    Colbert needs to take notes from Letterman. Tough to watch some of his interviews. He seems like he can’t relate to a lot of his guests.

    I live in a factory town and gold help anyone under 35. When you're around people who listen to local radio in a small town incessantly you're subjected to "Did you see the weather for Wednesday?" and "I'm locking my car after those USB cable heists in the west end" for honestly 20% of the work day. Millennials get a lot of shit for being up their own asses but I'd rather hear someone blather on about Manoush Zomorodi being "just outside the box enough" for two hours than have to nod about literally what the thermometer says all day/month/failed life long.
