Comedian and podcaster Marc Maron has a new show on Friday nights on IFC called Maron that has been on a for a few weeks. I was able to catch up on it this weekend and to my delight got to see both Maron and fellow comedian Dave Foley with a couple of nice steeshes.
Maron, much like Louis C.K.’s Louie, follows a fictionalized Maron. Even though it’s not as good as the old shows on the TGIF lineup, it pretty good entertainment for a Friday night show.
David Krumholtz has appeared in 69 movies and tv shows since his debut in the 1993 Michael J. Fox movie Life With Mikey. Among other things, he was in The Santa Clause, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, and was even the lead in the show Numb3rs that lasted 6 seasons on CBS. Still, I remember him as Barry Corman “The Cereal King” from his first role. Sure he was kind of a jerk, but you have to respect any child that wears a scarf.
Charlie Hofheimer plays Peggy Olsen’s boyfriend, Abe Drexler on Mad Men. He is a journalist/writer who basically just lives off Peggy. She just bought an apartment and he’s doing “some light remodeling.” I would do that for a free place to live. Hell, I had to do some light remodeling when I moved into my current apartment, like removing the door knob from my closet door and putting it on my roommate’s bedroom door because it was missing a knob. I wonder what kind of knob problems Abe is dealing with?
Ben Feldman plays Michael Ginsberg on AMC’s Mad Men. Season 6 of Mad Men takes place in 1968 and as far as I can tell there was a Mustache Boom that year. Also it doesn’t really seem like people had to worry about matching their clothes, as evidence in the above picture. In the last episode a guy was wearing a sweater-turtleneck with a cardigan sweater over it. The double sweater is almost impossible to get away with these days.
As I uploaded this picture I had a realization of just how weird the whole thing is. Today is Christina Hendricks’ birthday so I photoshopped a mustache on her?! Holy smokes! I mean I think I did a pretty good job and if she ever saw this there’d be a small chance she wouldn’t be creeped out, but in general this is the behavior of a full-on weirdo.
It once felt like it would never get here, but in reality time is just going at the same rate for ever so only a dummy would think that it would never get here. Anyway, we’ll get us some fresh Tobias coming our way on May 26th.
