Maria Bamford at Helium Comedy Club

By Anne Adams August 13, 2010

Maria Bamford sips a beverage with furrowed intensity, but she’ll make you laugh with her off-kilter worldview.

Maria Bamford. What a pip, what a card, what a weirdo. Chances are, you know the face, if not the name, from countless televised comedy performances, or from this spring’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival. Throughout the weekend, Bamford hits brand-new Helium Comedy Club with her hallmarks: deadpan awkwardness, nonsensical imagery, and scathingly spot-on character impressions that play up the true absurdity of people you may have previously deemed “normal.” In short, Bamford will reset your weird-dar. And you’ll have to laugh.
