Live WTF taping

I personally know a few people who've lamented the fact that the live WTF with Marc Maron taping sold out in 4 minutes. Well, said people, good news: ComedyFest Vancouver has changed the venue from the Tom Lee Music Hall to the Rio Theatre, which holds approximately twice the people. I have no idea of the current status, as the following press release came out yesterday and maybe it's sold out again already, but at least you can give it a try again.

On a related note, I'll be interviewing Maron for the fifth time on Monday. Needless to say, I've asked him lots of questions already over the years. It seems I always have a dozen thoughts each and every episode of WTF so I'm sure I'll have more than enough new questions for him. But if there's something you've been dying to ask him, leave a comment below and I promise I'll ask.

Now, onto the ComedyFest press release:
