Comedy nerds are fully familiar with comedian James Adomian— perhaps mostly from his many recurring podcast appearances and his onstage impersonations (Jesse Ventura, anyone?). Well, he’s using his powers for more good. As IFC preps for the series premiere of Marc Maron’s show Maron (May 3 at 10 pm ET), the network today launched Maron in Space, a five-episode Web series starring Adomian as Maron.

“Marc Maron has such a hilariously comedic voice that I figured if I was going to do an impression of him, the only way to really get inside his head was to put him in outer space” says Adomian, who created and co-wrote the series with comedian John Roy.

Maron in Space follows our unlikely hero captaining the Starship Maroner, who – along with his crew (cats included!) – fight against the evil powers of “The Hive.” You can watch all five episodes below. And believe us, you’ll want to watch all five episodes. And don’t skip ahead. Ok, enjoy!

    This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen. It’s a good parody of Star Trek, too.

    And it’s a huge testament to Maron that his voice and mannerisms are distinctive enough for an impression of him to carry an entire series. James rules!
