“I think if you say stop, he’ll say Hammertime.”
-Dean Pelton on Community, “Football, Feminism, and You” (season 1, episode 6)
Now that I have my tickets set, it’s time to make sure that all you locals know that Marc Maron will be headlining the Fringe Festival here in Rochester this September. He’s going to be at the Eastman Theatre, which means not only do I get to see Marc perform in my hometown, but I can walk to the show from my apartment. I *knew* moving here was a good idea.
In other WTF-related news, one of the things I’ve been working on this summer is watching season 1 of Community. I used to catch episodes of this from time-to-time at the gym and always found it amusing, but I’m appreciating its intricacy a lot more watching it from the beginning. This has also spurred me to go back to listen and, in some cases, relisten to all the WTF episodes that have to do with Community, and there are a lot of them. Marc interviewed series creator Dan Harmon, and he also interviewed actors Gillian Jacobs, Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash, and Donald Glover.
So, you know, that comedy obsession of mine is still intact. I think it’s just another way I cope with all the noise inside my head.
