Take a Trip to the Psych Ward with Maria Bamford on ‘Storytime’

Here’s the latest episode of Above Average’s web series Storytime featuring the lovely Maria Bamford, who looks back on a not-so-lovely memory involving a suicide attempt and resulting stay at a psychiatric ward. Let Bamford’s story serve as a warning to all comedians: If you try to kill yourself then get sent by the cops to a psych ward, do not tell the doctor what you do for a living unless you’re cool with him watching clips of your standup in front of you.
