WTF with Marc Maron

Episode 950 - Adam Cayton-Holland

Comedian, actor and writer Adam Cayton-Holland didn't plan on having a memoir in his 30s. But Adam's life took a stunning turn when his sister took her life six years ago and the grief process ran through the writing. Adam and Marc talk about hereditary mental illness, the urge to romanticize depression and self-destruction in comedy, and navigating the aftermath of a family tragedy. Adam also remembers what it was like to discover alt-comedy while living in Denver and wonders about the future of his TV series Those Who Can't. This episode is sponsored by Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9 and SimpliSafe.
