Hear Aimee Mann On Marc Maron’s WTF
Aimee Mann has long embraced the humorous side of indie. She teamed with emerging comedic talents like Patton Oswalt and David Cross on an Acoustic Vaudeville tour back in 2000, and her Christmas shows and mockumentary featured folks like Paul F. Tompkins, Ben Stiller, and Will Ferrell. Recent videos have played for laughs too; check out “Charmer” and “Labrador,” a shot-for-shot remake of the “Voice Carry” clip. Aimee’s already appeared on high-profile comedy podcasts The Best Show and Comedy Bang Bang so it was inevitable that she’d visit the cat ranch for one of Marc Maron’s awkwardly intense Q&As. I haven’t listened to it yet, though I was disheartened by how dismissive of ‘Til Tuesday Marc seems to be in this teaser. Show some respect, Maron. You can download or stream the whole thing here and find out if the singer’s still sore about losing an Oscar to Phil Collins.
