Bamford is the creator and star of the critically praised Maria Bamford: the special special special!, which Vulture.com named one of its Top 10 Stand-Up Specials of 2012, and the cult hit web series The Maria Bamford Show, which screened at the Museum of Art and Design and was described as a "cold blast of brilliance" by the New Yorker. Her latest CD "Ask Me About My New God!" is available now.
