Is it possible he's wearing lifts here? Click Here

After reviewing a bunch of photos with him and several guests, I think he can seem a strong 5’9”, maybe 5’9.25”. He holds up pretty well a lot. His 5’11” claim is ludicrous of course but it’s easy to imagine him standing well in large boots early in the day (especially when younger) hitting in the mark.

Rob, how tall does this guy (Gene Ween) look near Maron if you could guess?

Has always looked 5’8.5” to me, at least in his 50s (he’s had a very long stand-up career).

I'm not sure , I think he's 5'9.5 , sometimes he looks about 5'10 in GLOW , next to Bash Howard (listed as 5'10 here, I don't remember his real name LOL)

Watch the fighter and the kid podcast he’s wearing boot with a two inch heel they look larger enough to have a lift inside them too. That’s the whole reason I came here is bc of his ridiculous boots. He’s got to only be 5’9’’.

There is something very unlikable about lying about your height to this extent. Maybe it reflects poor character or something, like an inflated sense of ego or a refusal to deal with reality. It's basically the opposite of humility.

Here he is with 6'0" Steve Jones (guitarist of the Sex Pistols). Steve's 63 now, so he might be down to 5'11.25" today (at the lowest). Either way, Marc's at least 5'9"-5'9.5" Click Here

In this video from 7:56-8:02 Click Here he says 5'11 but acknowledges that he is growing older hence shrinking.
Steg said on 31/Mar/18
He's 5'10" at least. Watch GLOW and you'll realise.

This is why 5'11 guys are average, thanks Marc Maron for being the epitome of why 5'11 is not above average. 5'11.5-75 here and this is why I say 6' because people take me seriously and my height in most shoes. I actually like saying 5'11 but it's from idiots like these that make me change my mind.
Vexacus said on 4/Sep/17
He's 5'10 , 5'11 with shoes . He's not short at all.

Good comedian, got a big head but his body makes him look smaller. 5'9 at best.

Here Marc looks a bit shorter than Henry Rollins who is 175cm but it could be the angle and also it looks like Rollins is standing more upright than Maron. Click Here

Henry has also stated he's 5'10" (178), as well as 5'9" (175), so he's somewhere in between the 2 heights today at 56 years old and looked it next to Joe Rogan recently. Henry is THE MOST honest and humble guy around. Again, worst case scenario, Marc Maron is a flat 5'9", but he can be as high as 5'9.5".
Danimal said on 13/Aug/17
Never mind, I see you changed his height! Thanks Rob! Cheers!

Here Marc looks a tiny bit shorter than John Carpenter who is listed 178cm. Click Here

Here Marc looks a bit shorter than Henry Rollins who is 175cm but it could be the angle and also it looks like Rollins is standing more upright than Maron. Click Here

Here Maron looks shorter than 179cm James Franco. Click Here

It seems that Maron would be in the 174-177cm range. 177cm would be the absolute max. I think though that 175cm would be a pretty good guess.

as Danimal had said, you can make a case for marc being 5ft 9-9.5 range, maybe he is 5ft 9 at worse.
Slim 182 cm said on 10/Aug/17
Ok he's 5'9 absolutely maximum..
Danimal said on 9/Aug/17
Rob, he's at least 5'9"-5'9.5" today. You are short changing him. What more proof do you need than the below?

Rob, could we just give him 5ft9?

He's definitely miles from his claim but the current mark seems a bit torturous...He wouldn't be the first guy to abide by the 2in rule but the 2¼in rule!
Editor Rob
it was my estimate after looking at him, but you could make a case for 5ft 9
Rose said on 6/Aug/17
I worked at a comedy club years ago and he came in all the time. I am 5'10" and he was at least my height. He is NOT 5'9" or smaller.
MJKoP said on 5/Aug/17
Remember guys, he's five foot eleven. ;)
Aj said on 5/Aug/17
I met him in person. I'm 5'9 (close to 5'10) and he was taller than me. He is at least 5'11.
Rodolfo said on 5/Aug/17
This guy is a solid 5'8, my friend and I saw this guy and he looked short and we met him off stage and he was much shorter than me and my friend, we are both in the 5'11 range and wore about .5 inch sneaker so almost 6'. Marc was wearing dress shoes and it looked like he had inch and a half shoe because we saw him sitting on a chair with his shoe and sock and his ankle was visible and looked that he was obviously wearing lifts. He looked almost 5'10 with the shoes though. I do believe Maron has lost height by at least .75 inch. Anyways that's what I saw I couldn't really give a good guess because of the shoes. Little more than 5ft 8.25 is my best guess
Dingus said on 4/Aug/17
He was clearly shorter than the ~5'11.50" Louie CK.
Sam said on 4/Aug/17
I just don't get it. How do you get 5'11 when you're 5'9??? This kind of lying just irritates me.
Flagsy said on 4/Aug/17
He looks 5.5-6 inches shorter than Obama. Even if Obama had an extra 0.5 inches in footwear that would still make him nearer to 5'8 than 5'9.

Just pathetic
SAK said on 4/Aug/17
If he would have claimed 5'10", that would still be forgivable. But why claim 2inches over your height.
BlueHead said on 4/Aug/17
5'9.25 max , maybe he is near to 5'11 with bots.
traq said on 3/Aug/17
he's not that tall so 5'8-5'9 sounds about right for him
Slim 182 cm said on 3/Aug/17
I'd like this guy to meet Hugh Grant and claim 5'11 to him... 5'8.5 from me.
Animus said on 3/Aug/17
If he was truly 5'11", he wouldn't have to remind people he isn't short as he apparently did in a tweet. Only tall people with severe complexes would call a 5'11" man short.
