Happy Friday y’all! Have you heard of Maria Bamford? She’s a voice actor on the cartoon Adventure Time, Legend of Korra, and CatDog. You might recognize her from Arrested Development. All that and she’s an excellent stand up comic! I find her delightfully weird. Her style is impression-heavy and she’s not shy about distorting her face and voice. Here she is on Craig Fergusen:
And at the Laugh Factory:
She has bipolar disorder, and is open about mental health issues. In the clip below she talks about suicide and stigma around mental illness. She also talks about filming a comedy special in her own home (with only her parents in the audience):
Enjoy the laughs and have a happy weekend!
