After cajoling Rowdy Roddy Piper to appear at a special screening of They Live he abruptly passed away. In that time we’ve been working hard on transforming our screening of They Live on October 17th into a memorial screening to celebrate Rowdy’s life and work. We are ecstatic to announce that the longest-running WWE Champion of the modern era and quite the connoisseur of the horror film genre CM Punk will be joining us to introduce They Live and share with us the impact Rowdy Roddy Piper had on his life.
If you had purchased tickets for our original screening of They Live with Rowdy Roddy Piper Live! you are all set. If you wish to purchase tickets they are still $25 and we also have the $45 dollar option that comes with a limited edition, hand-pulled, silk screened They Live poster
On this week’s Maron, Marc is getting ready for his new talk show pilot by boldly going cold turkey and giving up nicotine gum and caffeine. That’s not all, either. He also wants to try and get in shape with the help of pro wrestler, CM Punk, but it might have been too much too soon and the stress of his new regimen leads to a more serious problem.
Maron airs Thursdays on IFC.
