Stand Up! Records is happy to announce the re-release of Air America luminary Marc Maron’s first CD, the newly remastered “Not Sold Out.” For those who have witnessed their own personal progression from righteous indignation, to flat-out rage, to defeatist internal fuming, to apathy and back again, sixty minutes with Marc Maron will feel not only familiar, but eerily like having a drink, a couple of Prozacs and a boisterous argument with yourself. Maron happily touches on everything from the fact that drug-pushers and porn-peddlers are not, I repeat, not here to look out for your well being, to his own divinely-inspired plan to rid the world of Al-Qaeda using nothing but heroin addicts and a little ingenuity. The really tricky part is, he’ll keep you laughing the whole way through. If you haven’t yet begun to suspect that the most absurd things in life may be the closest to the truth, Maron will make a staunch believer out of you. At the very least, you’re liable to find you’ve developed an uncontrollable urge to clap your hands and shout, “Again! Again!” when this CD finally winds down.

Good and dirty Oct 20, 2009
Marc Maron's comedy emerges from self-deprecation and then proceeds towards political idealism. He makes stops along the way to tell very dirty jokes and slosh around in dark humors. Indeed, the angry man with a head full of graphic images is not a new act among comedians, but rarely does a comedian have the ability to rant effectively and consistently.

Don't despair. Marc assures you things are worse than you think! Oct 22, 2008
It is said that art is born out of misery - which, if you subsribe to that rationale, should convince you, based on this CD and Marc Maron's "Tickets Still Available", that Maron edifies stand-up comedy as an art, as legitmate as painting and music. His profane, rage-fueled rants sound off on cultural and candidly self-critical topics such as suicide, being a coward, American Taliban John Walker Lindh(this was recorded in 2002), tourists dining in chain restaurants in New York, Rudy Guiliani's de-pornification of NYC, pop-culture mediocrity explained by way of a Britney Spears' vagina metaphor, and pop-culture infantilization as illustrated by grown-ups reading the Harry Potter books. His set includes commentary on politics also, which can be knowing and acerbic, though by the audience's comparatvely muted reaction during these passages, you can conclude that Marc's core appeal to the audience is his lack of vanity when talking about personal disappointments in his life, particularly when confiding his porn consumption. Perhaps you can attribute his appeal to the Jerry Springer effect, though I find myself laughing with him rather than at him precisely for his fearlessness in confronting the unsavory and cringe-inducing aspects not just of him but of everyone, by way of comedy-club confessional. Sure, before there was Marc, there was Richard Lewis, the difference being that Marc deftly mocks himself without evoking pity from the audience, which is lethal to an audience's energy. Marc Maron didn't invent cringe humor, though I would argue that he perfected it.
