Slightly like WTF with Marc Maron. But no cats. No garage. Just the ABCs: Actors, Buskers, Bands & Comics. Expelled student editors and subversives involved. Plus whatever else Mark finds groovy. Mark Roman. He puts the “I” in “improv”. He's a comic who's opened for Lisa Landry and written for Hank Azaria. He wears short shorts while working new material. On Hollywood Blvd and the Las Vegas Strip. Reno 911's Thomas Lennon calls him "bigger". His Verified Twitter followers might grab your attention. These are his stories.

Buskers have a story too
The busking interviews are my fav. It’s A community not talked about. Mark also interviews actors and band, but the added stories of buskers bring a refreshing point of view and the added narrative where busking isn’t just something to pass the time till the person gets a big Hollywood break. It’s a community, a lifestyle and just people that want to make enough to pay rent, buy food, and put smiles on people’s faces. I would love to see a Hollywood where A-Listers are busking and it’s just so normal and fun and part of the Hollywood ecosystem. Mark is that busker that’s paving the way to normalize Busking. Well done!
A do it all podcast for all your comedic pick me ups you need throughout your day. Love it!
If you want the real behind the scenes stories of working in Hollywood , I suggest listening to this pod !
