HIGHLAND PARK – Secret Service agents in the driveway. A sniper on the neighbor’s roof. The President of the United States in the garage. Comedian and podcast host Marc Maron provided some details about his interview with President Obama, who showed up last Friday at Maron’s garage studio in Highland Park.
“When I bought my house, I didn’t know nothing about Highland Park either. It seemed very far away from everything. And yeah, it’s a nightmare to get to the Westside. I don’t ever want to go. Like, I gotta pack a tent. But I have immediate access to the Valley, downtown, Silverlake. I’m happy to be part of this community.”
Maron was instructed to tidy up the 165-square-foot garage “so the president wouldn’t trip over anything” and keep his cats in the bedroom for the President’s visit.
