Maria Bamford stars in the semi-autobiographical Netflix comedy series Lady Dynamite, lauded as “revelatory” by Entertainment Weekly and one of 2016’s must-see shows by Variety and Rolling Stone. The series was created by Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Pam Brady (South Park).
Maria is the creator and star of Maria Bamford: the special special special and of the cult hit web series The Maria Bamford Show, which screened at the Museum of Art and Design. She was the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials and starred alongside Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Brian Posehn in the Comedy Central series The Comedians of Comedy and Netflix’s Comedians of Comedy: The Movie.
Maria voices characters on numerous animated series including BoJack Horseman, Adventure Time, Legend of Korra, Puss in Boots and PBS’s Emmy-winning series Word Girl. She can also be heard voicing lead roles on Fox’s Golan the Insatiable and Yahoo’s Talking Tom & Friends.
Maria recurred as DeBrie Bardeaux on Netflix’s Arrested Development reboot, for which she was praised as a “standout” (TIME) and “perhaps one of the high points of the entire new season” (Black Book Magazine). She has also recurred on USA’s Benched, fX’s critically-praised Louie, and currently recurs on the ABC hit Fresh Off the Boat. Her new special Old Baby is available on Netflix.
Jackie Kashian's comedy is like listening to a really racy episode of “All Things Considered." Her new hour standup special "This Will Make an Excellent Horcrux" is available on CD, DVD and digital download on Comedy Film Nerds. She's appeared twice on the Conan O'Brien show, Comedy Central's @midnight and has recorded This American Life with Ira Glass for NPR. Her critically acclaimed podcast, The Dork Forest, is in its 10th year. She interviews all and sundry about the things they love. Their "dorkdoms." It's the safest space in podcasting.
