Today’s side deal slides your funny bone a tall, calcium-rich glass of milk. For $10, you get one ticket (a $20 value) to see acclaimed joke-jockey Marc Maron fling cutting witticisms and acerbic satire from the stage of MADCAP Theaters in Tempe. Arrive 30 minutes before the show to pick up your tickets at the will-call area.
Marc Maron, the “Iggy Pop Woody Allen,” weaves long narratives out of personal pain and political outrage, pulling from his own life confessionally forthright tales of quotidian encounters with the absurd, banal, sad, and egregiously stupid. Maron has made several laps on the late-night circuit, released three CDs and a book, and topped the iTunes charts last year with his podcast, “WTF with Marc Maron.”
The funny gets cranked up to 11 thanks to MADCAP’s state-of-the-fairly-recent-art community creative space and taser-toting laugh enforcers. Attending stand-up comedy is not just a great workout for your abs, it’s a vital contribution that helps support the growth and dissemination of America’s most precious resource: neuroticism.
Marc Maron’s one-man shows have received positive reviews from the New York Times and Time Out New York: > * Ambiguity is expected of Mr. Maron: one reason he and a few like-minded comics adopted the label alternative in the mid-1990’s was to signal audiences that they were not quick-laugh artists like most stand-up comics. – D. J. R. Bruckner, New York Times > * Maron’s show, a monologue riddled with manic digressions, chronicles his lifelong attempts to exorcise the befanged love demons that persist in pulling him down nonetheless. – Drew Toal, Time Out New York
Excited Yelpers give 4.5 stars to MADCAP Theaters: > * I think (i.e. hope) that MADCAP signals a change back to the “old” Mill Ave. The things that are going on here are the best reuse of this old building. Thank you to all the people who made this happen. - J Seth A. > * This is a great addition to Downtown Tempe and perfect for the Mill Avenue area to expand on it’s [sic] urban and eclectic roots in the music and arts industry! – Casaundra B.
