I don’t even know where to begin with this. Let me start here, Marc from Burgatory interviewed Marc Maron about burgers. Yes comedy people love burgers and I’m so excited by this interview that I can’t contain myself. I WANT TO WRITE THIS WHOLE POST IN CAPS LOCK JUST TO SHOW HOW EXCITED I AM but I won’t.
You should totally read the interview first. I’ll wait.
Now that you’re done I’m going to list some of the highlights for me:
- Maron knows a thing or two about burgers, “Well there are different kinds of burgers…you’ve got your fast food type of burger, or diner type of burger or you’ve got your fancy burger.”
- Maron likes In-N-Out. I don’t think I have to go any further with that, you all know how I feel about INO.
- Maron finds cooking meditative, “I find cooking very meditative and it captures my focus and I do it to step down all of my anxieties. We have very little control over most things in life but if you get going with cooking at least you have control for a half-hour.” So very true. I love cooking when I’m feeling stressed.
The whole interview is great and I can’t thank Marc, from Burgatory, enough for sharing it with us. I have been listening to Maron’s podcast for awhile now and it’s one of my favorites. You should totally subscribe to it ASAP. Thanks to WTFpod, I watch this video at least once a day. It is the funniest thing to come out of 2009.
And while I am linking to youtube videos, you should also check out Maron’s Angry Chef web series.
This interview is a great segue into a series that I hope to do where I highlight different food related items that are connected with folks performing at MaxFunCon. As I mentioned before, I AM ATTENDING MAXFUNCON! You know who is going to be at MaxFunCon (MFC)? Marc Maron. See how it’s all related? I always hoped to somehow combine my love of food with my love of comedy and I hope to do that with this series as well as continue building up my excitment for MFC.
I have been telling a lot of people that I will be attending MFC because I pretty much can’t think about anything else. About 98.2% ask me what it is so I will explain it to you all now. As stated on the MFC website:
“MaximumFunCon is a gathering of creative people who wish to be more awesome”
That’s all you really need to know. Awesome people getting together to be even more awesome. It is hosted by Jesse Thorn America’s Radio Sweetheart™ and lord of Maximunfun.org. Basically Jesse has gotten some of his amazing and talented friends together for a weekend of entertainment and fun. Even better he has given us, Johnny Q Public, the opportunity to be a a part of this amazing weekend.
Here is the list of performers:
Clifford & Kidd
Jordan, Jesse, Go!
Never Not Funny
You Look Nice Today
If this sounds like something you would enjoy, which it totally should or we shouldn’t be on speaking terms anymore, you should register to come. The price includes all food, beverages, lodging and entertainment for the entire weekend. I hear it get’s very boozy, the food is excellent AND DID I MENTION THE ENTERTAINMENT! I would love to see some Philly folks at MFC. We could do the Mummer’s strut or something, show them how we do in the Illadelph.
