About the Show

It's a comedy interview DOUBLE SHOT! First up, Maria Bamford. She's one of the biggest and easily one of the funniest comedians working today. Maria has appeared on The Comedians of Comedy tour, Louie, and in somewhat unsettling Christmas commercials for Target. We climb inside Maria's head in a revealing interview. Hannibal Buress recently starred in the Comedy Central special, Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace, and is a former writer for SNL and 30 Rock.

The Guests

Maria Bamford


Maria is the creator and star of Maria Bamford: the special special special, which Vulture.com named one of the Top 10 Stand-Up Specials of 2012, and of 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.  Maria recurred on the Netflix reboot of Arrested Development, for which she was praised as “fantastic” (Entertainment Weekly) a “standout” (TIME) and “perhaps one of the high points of the entire new season” (Black Book Magazine).  She also recurred on FX’s critically-praised Louie and stars on the upcoming USA sitcom Benched.  Maria currently contributes comedic voiceovers for such animations as Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, PBS’s Emmy-winning series Word Girl, Nickelodeon’s Kung Fu Panda and Legend of Korra, and Netflix’s upcoming Puss in Boots.  Her latest CD, Ask Me About My New God! was named one of top five CD’s of 2013 by Entertainment Weekly.  Maria recently won the American Comedy Award for Best Club Comic.
