    Stand-up comedian, Marc Maron, kicks of his “Out of the Garage” Tour at The Egg in Albany, NY this Friday, February 1st.

The title of the show refers to the home-studio in his garage – the primary location used to record his very popular podcast “WTF with Marc Maron.” The podcast features perceptive stream-of-consciousness introductions and lengthy (usually one-on-one, occasionally one-on-two for example: Tenacious D) conversations with iconic entertainment personalities. The podcast premiered in 2009 and regularly hits #1 on iTunes and has been called a “must-listen” by Vanity Fair, The New York Times, and many other publications and entertainment websites.

2 actors, 7 books, 70 minutes: Potted Potter in the GE Theatre at Proctors

In June of 1997, the first of J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” books was published in the UK. The scarred and bespectacled boy wizard’s popularity is virtually immeasurable and his adventures fill the pages of 7 total books - which have been the basis for 8 feature length films. As with anything – if there is anything – as popular as Harry Potter, the creativity doesn’t stop there – or even with officially sanctioned theme parks. Fans of the world Rowling created continue to retell and re-imagine the stories through fan-fiction, music, and theater.

In Potted Potter, two actors, Daniel Clarkson and Jeff Turner, comically and energetically deliver Harry Potter’s story on stage in 70 minutes. 7 books in 70 minutes. In their production – which was nominated for an Olivier award in London and has toured globally – Jeff Turner plays Harry, and Daniel Clarkson plays everyone else.
