The multi-talented Marc Maron has a career that encompasses stand-up comedy, writing, podcasting, and acting – but how much is he worth? DC fans will soon see Marc Maron play booking agent Ted Marco in Todd Phillips’ hotly-anticipated Joker origin movie but he got his kickstart in the entertainment industry over 30 years ago. Like many comedians, he started out at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles before moving to New York City, and in the mid-1990s he unsuccessfully auditioned for Saturday Night Live but did manage to get gigs on Short Attention Span Theater and HBO Comedy Half-Hour.
Maron still does stand-up comedy but his TV work is also pretty consistent. He’s had voice acting roles on animated shows including The Life & Times of Tim, Metalocalypse, Adventure Time and Harvey Beak alongside a multi-episode gig on Girls. Between 2013 and 2016, he played a fictionalized version of himself in the loosely autobiographical comedy series Maron which ran for four seasons and in 2019 he appeared on an episode of The Simpsons.
At this point in his career, Celebrity Net Worth estimates Marc Maron is worth $2 million. Maron owes a lot of that success to his popular long-running podcast WTF With Marc Maron which he’s been producing since 2009 and is said to make him over $14,000 per episode. Over his decade of podcasting, Maron has interviewed everybody from film greats like Robin Williams, fellow comedians like Amy Poehler and former POTUS Barack Obama. Maron’s podcast has also birthed memorable moments like comedian Tod Glass using his episode to come out as gay or when Kevin Smith talked about his not-so-great experience working with Bruce Willis on Cop Out, which resulted in a long-standing feud between the pair.
Maron’s film career is going from strength-to-strength too. Alongside his forthcoming role in Joker, Maron recently got rave reviews for his performance as a cantankerous pawnshop owner in Lynn Shelton’s indie comedy Sword Of Trust. Later this year he’ll star in the Netflix mystery-drama Wonderland alongside Mark Wahlberg and is currently filming Stardust – a David Bowie biopic chronicling his first visit to the U.S. in which Maron plays publicist Ron Oberman.
Another big earner contributing to Marc Maron’s net worth is his main role on Netflix’s critically acclaimed series GLOW as Sam Sylvia, the director of the titular all-female wrestling circuit. His performance in GLOW has earned him several nominations at the likes of the Critics’ Choice and Screen Actors Guild Awards and fans will hopefully be seeing him in season 4 when Netflix gets around to renewing it.
