Funny and trying, "Maron," which premieres Friday on IFC, stars the comedian and podcaster Marc Maron as comedian and podcaster Marc Maron. Among self-referential sitcoms, it is somewhere on (or around) the continuum between "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Louie," less fanciful than the first and more conventional than the latter.
