What the UK press said about Marc Maron in GLOW:
he is absolutely terrific in it… He can convey both cynicism and regret in a single look
Hadley Freeman, The Guardian
Marc Maron is brilliant
Christopher Stevens, The Mail on Sunday
one of the few current series that gives you a joyful inner warmth. That’s partly down to Marc Maron’s turn as the show’s misogynist director

played with winning disdain by Marc Maron

We love him as cynical director Sam Sylvia
