Stand-up comedians are usually caricatured as grumpy, clinically depressed people with social phobias and a textbook example for doctors to prescribe antidepressants to, and Marc Maron is a prime example of this archetype. Even now that he’s a successful, iconic name who packs theaters around the country whether it’s to record an episode of his “WTF” podcast or just to perform his material, he still seems lost in his head as he ruminates about hefty philosophical concepts or why he’s willing to say “F*** you” to ice cream. Fortunately for the audience, being lost in a barrage of constant thoughts is great for comedy when the angry is crafted with Maron’s signature wit. The star of the “WTF” podcast and IFC’s “Maron” will perform live on stage at Gilley’s Dallas (1135 S. Lamar St.) at 8 p.m. Sunday as part of his Maronation Tour. Tickets are $29 per person.
