Marc Maron’s comic roots in Boston clubs

Marc Maron has done a little of everything since graduating from Boston University in 1986. He did voice work on “Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist,” had a cameo in the film “Almost Famous,” hosted a radio show on Air America and a short-lived TV show on Comedy Central, and now does a popular podcast, “WTF With Marc Maron.”

But Maron says his real job — first, last, and always — is stand-up comedy.
