Larry Miller is many things - actor, writer, podcaster, raconteur - but above all he calls himself a comic. He talks with Marc about being part of the comic brotherhood and the uncommon perspective he gained after a terrifying incident after a show in San Francisco. Plus, Marc makes a startling discovery on the road in Denver. This episode is sponsored in part by Comedy Central.

    I never heard Sweet Virginia before. Nice, Marc Maron. You introduce me to real good things.

    Great episode but for some reason I spent the whole damn thing attributing Miller with the work of Robert Klein. I kept waiting for "I can't stop my leg!"

    Larry Miller is a wonderful storyteller. His cable specials are works of art. They hold up beautifully after all these years, and no matter how many times I see him perform it, I still laugh right where he wants me to during The Five Stages of Drinking. His movie appearances are also delightful, particularly when he participates in a Chris Guest ensemble.

    I love Larry Miller, and I don't feel that way about any other comedian, comic actor or humorist known to hold conservative political views. Maybe it's because he doesn't air his politics onstage, though he certainly does in other public venues.

    I fully expected Marc to probe this aspect of Larry's persona and compare/contrast his roles as comedic performer and political commentator. But no. I came away thinking that either a pre-interview agreement about topics had been made, or Marc had been simply mesmerized by Larry's style. In any case Mr. Miller took complete control of the episode, and revealed not the tiniest insight into what shapes his comedy or how his mind works. He is a very good storyteller indeed.

    Great interview with a very affable guy. Yes, some people have boring jobs, Max. Like myself. But some people have the wherewithal to realise that fact and not bore the socks off others with inane chatter. I liked the story, a real Larry David moment, and you just know he didn't actually get to say "Okay, you win" but only wished he could have. And if he DID say it, and the guy still continued, then the other guy is even more of a douchebag.
    p.s. I like dogs AND cats.

    Loved it, been a fan of Larry Miller since I can remember. Seems like such a cool guy, unlike most of the characters he plays in movies (which he does SO well). Now I have ANOTHER podcast to listen to.

    lost me at comedians are cool, "civilians" are stupid. really? "civilians?"

    sounded like Marc was uncomfortable with the elitism, but he didn't call it out so I guess he owns it now.

    some people have boring jobs, larry miller. they're the people that make it possible for you to have the kind of life you have. try being less of an entitled prick next time you have dinner with one of them.

    Totally entertaining, I saw Larry Miller I thought 'aw crap, who's next - Rita Rudner?' Marc really let him shine. Miller came off very happy-go-lucky and a lot more interesting than I expected.

    I went in thinking this was going to be a good one but, sorry, it was awful. Marc sounded like he was stuck at a dinner having to talk about re-insurance ;-)
