Early Life & Failed Marriages
Marc- height 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 m)- was earlier a guy with problems of anger, alcoholism, and drugs. While the comedian became sober at the age of 26, his emotional issues didn’t get resolved.
His issues stemmed from his absent and volatile father, Barry Maron while growing up.
Although his parents: orthopedic surgeon father and mother Toby, provided him physically, they couldn’t nurture him emotionally. Also, he couldn’t achieve success in comedy early on in his career. Worse, his friends/ contemporaries Sarah Silverman and Louis C.K left Marc far behind in terms of fame and fortune.
The deprivation and failure affected his relationships too as Marc got married twice, but both of the legal bonds ended in divorce.

The comedian’s first marriage was to producer Kimberly Reiss in 1997. After being married for four long years, the couple parted ways. Still, Marc didn’t give up on marriage. He got hitched to fellow comedian Mishna Wolff in 2004 and ended the union in 2007.
The second marriage was relatively life-changing for the comedian. It was costly, and during the same time, he got fired from his self-titled liberal talk-radio station show, due to anger issues.
After hitting rock bottom, Marc decided to try his hands at a podcast, which gave birth to WTF with Marc Maron. The show finally gave him the success the comedian was craving. His relationship with his father also improved as the show made Marc’s father proud. And, the podcast shot the comedian’s net worth to the roof.
Now, the once nearly broke comedian boasts a net worth of $2 million.
