Misery loves famous company: Marc Maron has recruited a slew of funny folks to appear in the second season of his IFC comedy series, Maron, which has been given a debut date of May 8 at 10 p.m.
Johnny Knoxville, Ray Romano, David Cross, and Sarah Silverman will pop up as themselves during the 13-episode season, along with Michael Ian Black, Conan O’Brien, and Andy Richter. Also joining the guest list inside and outside the garage are Chris Hardwick, Tig Notaro, Rob Riggle, Bill Burr, Paul Feig, Wyatt Cenak, Joey “Coco” Diaz, Rachael Harris, Moshe Kasher, Tom Kenny, Dave Koechner, Jimmy Pardo, Eddie Pepitone, Richard Riehle, and Nora Zehtner.
The show stars the neurotic comedian/podcaster as himself — or at least a “90-percent” version of himself — who struggles through day-to-day life. In season 2, look for Marc’s family to spend some uncomfortable time together under the same roof and for his dear cat Boomer to go missing. While you wait a few more months for the new season to begin, enjoy this pair of images from upcoming episodes: Above, Marc interviews Cross, with contributions (or are those interruptions?) from his onscreen father (played by Judd Hirsch) and mother (Sally Kellerman), while below, in the season premiere, he chats with Hardwick while serving as a guest on Talking Dead.
