Hopefully Maron Isn't Just A Louie Clone

I know we don't see a lot of Louie CK's parent's on Louie...I think we've only had one episode with Louie's mother, if I remember correctly...but when Marc Maron''s friends are introduced as being all stand-up comedians, just like Louie's, it's just too hard not too compare the two the two shows.  Don't get me wrong, the world would definitely be a better place with more shows of the caliber of Louie but having listened to many, many, many WTF episodes I think that critical comparisons between Louie and Maron will drive Marc crazy and so I would have thought he would have gone out of his way to make the shows significantly different...even if it possibly made it not quite as good as it could be.  Either way, I'll be watching May 3rd.
