PunchlineMagazine.com presents Marc Maron: Scorching the Earth The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thu., Sept. 24, 8 p.m., Fri., Sept. 25, 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Sept. 26, 7:30 & 10:30 p.m. 2009

Marc Maron's Scorching the Earth uses the backdrop of Maron's second divorce to explore the concepts of love, need, hate, sex, anger, as well as the choice between humility and bitterness. And cats. Lots of cats. It is painfully funny. "When you're an asshole and your wife leaves you, there's a part of you that thinks, 'Good for her. That took a lot of guts to leave me. I'm a little jealous. I've been trying to leave me for years,'" Maron says. "I had her convinced that this intense mixture of neediness, hostility and fear of abandonment was passion. Now, the jig is up."
