“I had about one degree of separation with Robin Williams,” Maron tells Punchline Magazine. “We’d hung out a couple of times but we weren’t tight. I was taking a trip up to his neck of the woods. I thought I would try to track him down. So I did and he agreed to an interview.”

Maron continues: “No matter what your opinions may be of him he was, and might still be, one of the biggest comedy stars in the world. I was nervous because I didn’t want to get caught up in the Williams riff cyclone and be blown out without getting a real interview– a genuine conversation with him. We sat down for about an hour and he stayed still and focused and open. This is a rare chat with a huge star.”
