Maria Bamford Is Releasing a Stand-Up Special Recorded in Her Living Room in Front of Her Parents
Stand-up Maria Bamford is self-releasing a new hour special called Maria Bamford: The special special special! later this month, but it’s gonna be a little different than just about any stand-up special ever made because 1. she’s recording it in her living room and 2. her parents will be the only ones in the audience. Laughspin reports that Bamford will be releasing the special on November 28th through the L.A.-based video site Chill.com. Bamford is currently doing voices for animated series like Adventure Time, Word Girl, and Legend of Korra and has had roles in the most recent season of Louie and the upcoming season of Arrested Development. Her new album Ask Me About My New God comes out sometime next year on Comedy Central Records. This is the second special Bamford has recorded in her home after 2010’s Maria Bamford’s One-Hour Homemade Christmas Stand-up Special, in which she performed for her two pugs from her couch. Hopefully, her parents have a better sense of humor than those dogs do.
