Lewis Black and Marc Maron are DNA Cousins!
Comedy runs in the family! Lewis Black and previous Finding Your Roots guest Marc Maron are cousins.
- No, not, that's perfect.
- Your DNA cousin is your fellow standup comedian
Marc Maron! - Marc Maron, wow.
- [Henry] Isn't that amazing?
- That's perfect.
That's really funny.
- You and Marc share DNA on seven different chromosomes.
- Is that, right? - Yeah.
So that means you share
at least one distant ancestor in your family trees
and probably multiple common ancestors on your family trees.
- Common ancestors?
- Yeah, meaning, if we had his ideal family tree and yours,
there'd be more than one person who would be the same,
like a great-great grandmother, great-great grandfather.
And we know that through DNA.
'Cause as the brothers say, "DNA don't lie."
