Filmed this year at The Vic Theatre in Chicago, “Marc Maron: More Later” captures Maron as he dishes out compelling, raw and wildly honest stand-up. In this brand new special, Maron tackles religion, relationships, rage, Skype sex and ice cream among other topics in the sheerly authentic way that only he can.

“I’m really excited about this special,” said Marc Maron. “The Vic is an amazing theater and the crowd in Chicago was amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever been funnier and I should know.”

“Marc’s edgy, smart approach to comedy is admired not only by his peers, but by fans worldwide,” said Mark S. Greenberg, President and CEO, EPIX. “This has been a banner year for EPIX comedy specials and we are honored to continue presenting our viewers with the best stand-up comedy acts performing today, uncut and uncensored.”
