Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Maria Bamford The Irrelevant Redundancy (USA)

For the first time since 2011, Queen of the US alt-comedy scene and celebrated TV star Maria Bamford returns to Melbourne!

Maria is compelling, charismatic and completely original, known for her refreshing honesty and self-deprecating comedy. Her ingenious comedy brain works in mysterious ways, with deadpan delivery sitting comfortably alongside the silly and surreal.

Named by Judd Apatow as the ‘funniest woman on Earth’, Maria has been seen in her semi-autobiographical Netflix series Lady Dynamite, as a recurring role on Arrested Development and in her own cult web series 'The Maria Bamford Show’. Her quirky and unique voice lends itself perfectly to comic characters, with notable appearances including Bojack Horseman and Adventure Time.

Don’t miss Maria in this rare Australian appearance. Five shows only!

'Ridiculously original, odd and confessional…She’s transcendent.'  New York Magazine

'A seasoned, virtuoso comedian.’  New York Times

'A comic craftswoman making us laugh in the most unexpected, hard-won and emotionally authentic ways. ★★★★½'  The Guardian (UK)
