What 37-year old comedian stars in the new Fox series Sit Down, Shut Up? What comic earned “Best of the Web” from Salon.com and the Harvard Crimson for her web series The Maria Bamford Show? What entertainer is one of Variety’s “Top Ten Comics to Watch” and was voted by Comedy Central viewers as one of their “Top Ten Favorite Comics?” Maria Bamford! That’s who! Maria started her performing arts career in Duluth, Minnesota at the age of 11 where she starred in the Chester Park Elementary production of How the West Was REALLY Won! A short 24 years of self-discovery and secretarial work later and look at her now! Maria is the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials. She starred in the Comedy Central series The Comedians of Comedy and Netflix’s Comedians of Comedy: The Movie. She has made multiple late-night appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn and Jimmy Kimmel Live, as well as not-so-late appearances on Premium Blend, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and The World Comedy Tour: Melbourne 2003.
