WTF with Marc Maron

Episode 928 - Eleanor Kerrigan

Comedian Eleanor Kerrigan knows a lot about The Comedy Store. Not only did she become the club's head waitress, she also became a confidant and sometime-assistant to the owner, Mitzi Shore. After a stint as a professional wrestler and an opener for Andrew Dice Clay, Eleanor finally found herself on stage at The Store and she hasn't left since. She tells Marc what it was like to get to know Mitzi, why she can't escape her South Philly roots, and how she's trying to pass along the history of The Store to new audiences. This episode is sponsored by the film Three Identical Strangers, the Outside the Box podcast, Stitcher Premium, and Ben & Jerry's.
