Comedian Marc Maron’s humble Highland Park abode is in escrow. Maron interviewed hundreds of stars, and even former President Barack Obama, for his “WTF with Marc Maron Podcast” in the attached garage.

A Redfin listing for the 1927 single-story Spanish-style bungalow on Phillips Way says a sale is pending after less than a month on the market. The 932-square-foot home was listed for $750,000 in late March, according to the Eastsider L.A.

The listing makes a point to advertise Maron’s many famous guests, who along with the former president included Chris Rock, Bruce Springsteen, and Jennifer Lawrence. The 54-year-old comic started his podcast nearly a decade ago and recorded more than 900 in his finished garage studio, which he packed with memorabilia from his guests and career.

Maron told the New York Times that he’s had the money to move to a larger home for a while, but stayed because he worried he couldn’t recreate the magic of the garage. Maron purchased the home in 2003 for $375,000, according to the Eastsider. [Eastsider LA] — Dennis Lynch
