Interview with the Bammer

A friend told me about Maria Bamford’s three-minute shorts on Super Deluxe and I was immediately hooked after watching one episode. The idea is that Maria, a Professional Comedian in L.A., loses it and moves back in with her family in Duluth, Minnesota. This gives Maria ample opportunity to play her disapproving mom, her slightly out-of-it dad, her catatonic boyfriend Todd, her nail-biting sister, and her frazzled boss Amy. It also lets Maria do crazy things to her hair and dress up Blossom, her pug, in any way she pleases.

Sadly, Maria is no longer making episodes of her show. But she is busy with her standup, with her voiceover work, and with filming Sit Down, Shut Up!, a Fox TV show airing in a year featuring many of the cast members of the late, lamented Arrested Development. Because Maria is doing the online dating thing, and because she’s so f’in’ hilarious, I wanted to interview her for the blog. She was kind enough to chat for an hour about self-help, dating, and dog psychics (which, alas, didn’t make the final cut). Read more here.
