Comedian Maria Bamford was named by Rolling Stone as one of their 50 Funniest People, and won the 2014 American Comedy Award for Best Club Comic. Her Netflix sitcom, Lady Dynamite, premiered earlier in 2016.

Maria Bamford is revered for her deeply personal and experimental comedy about mental illness. She starred in the surreal, semi-autobiographical Netflix comedy series, Lady Dynamite, about a comedian who suffers a nervous breakdown, and is the star of three unconventional hour-long stand-up specials.

Bamford was the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials, and starred alongside Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis, and Brian Posehn in the Comedy Central series The Comedians of Comedy and Netflix’s Comedians of Comedy: The Movie. She also created and starred in the cult hit web series, The Maria Bamford Show, in which she plays all the characters.
