Waiting for the Punch is a selection of snippets from interviews Marc Maron conducted on his immensely popular podcast WTF! Every chapter is full of wisdom and humor from actors like Amy Poehler and Michael Keaton to comedians like Patton Oswalt and Louis CK and even Barack Obama. The list of heavy hitters in this book is massive, and the small excerpts from interviews, arranged by topic, are endlessly fascinating, perhaps because they are so masterfully woven together with commentary by Maron himself, or simply because the guests are so interesting. This book is great for fans of comedy and entertainment, or for someone who just needs a good quote to get them through the day.
