See This: Maria Bamford at the Wilbur Theatre

Bam goes the dynamite


Maria Bamford may be one of those celebrities you’ve “totally seen in something” but whose name you can’t quite recall. The longtime comedian and actress has received rave reviews for her turns in shows like Arrested Development and Louie—not to mention earned many fans with her sometimes surreal, part observational, part self-reflective stand-up—but she’s not quite a household name. That may soon change, due to Bamford’s just-released Netflix series, Lady Dynamite. A razor-sharp, winking parody of her own life, which includes a longtime struggle with mental illness, the show has already garnered critical praise and features guest stars like Saturday Night Live alum Ana Gasteyer and The League’s Jason Mantzoukas. Catch Bamford’s set at the Wilbur Theatre on June 10—then binge watch her show all weekend.
