It's in this slightly alternate universe that Maron exists; his podcast is picking up steam, he's adjusting to life after his second divorce, and he's learning from the famous comedians who stop by his garage to share their wisdom. The show features an excellent collection of his celebrity comedian pals, including the always amazing Dave Foley as an inebriated version of himself in the pilot.
