OMFG I HEART MARIA BAMFORD

bill_bohrer

Maria Bamford is utterly brilliant. Her voices are spot on, and a tad creepy how easily she dons a completely new personality, going from her apparently every day Emo Philips-like affect, to upscale suburban country club matron, to ditzy party girl to Beavis and Butthead style burnouts. She has a hilariously nutty take on reality that has me snorting out my nose at times for the unexpectiedness of her observations. I think she's actually insane, which is probably why I can relate.

Very different and funny

She is not to everyone's taste with her often dark humor, but she is original and clever

Best Living Comedienne...

rubiconvict

and Comedian maybe, too. Right up there with the bigs. She has a voice so clearly defined. Sounds like no one else. Deserves to makes fists of cash. She's even great in a Target comercial. Okay, not great, but not offensive either. She's so awesome that it's not awful. Jay Leno should learn a lesson.

She Kills

Ah...Clem

Maria Bamford is as good a comedienne as you'll find working today.

Yeah, times are typos

For instance, "Opening Party" is 2:15, not 0:06.

3 minutes?

Has anyone tried this yet? Is it a proper download hiding behind a typo?

They Say All Music Guide

Given a higher profile by her exposure on the Comedians of Comedy tours and documentaries alongside friends Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, and Zach Galifianakis, Maria Bamford has moved up a few levels in terms of exposure and general hipness. Luckily, her material has elevated as well. Bamford’s first album, The Burning Bridges Tour, overemphasized the comedian’s cartoony aspects, most notably a voice that makes her sound like Betty Boop’s neurotic sister. That trait is modulated on How to Win, and Bamford’s material takes a less insular turn, focusing on more social and political topics in routines like “I Heart My Country” and “Competitive Living.” Even her more personal material takes a different shape, including some amusingly dark turns like the hilarious “Sister Sarah,” a description of her older sister’s work as a pathologist. Or, as Bamford sweetly introduces her, “This is my sister Sarah. She cuts up the dead into chunks.” Bamford is a low-key comedian more interested in the wry observation than the manic belly laugh, which makes odd digressions like the tour de force soundtrack of old man body noises in “Dad” all the more surprising and funny. – Stewart Mason
