Maria Bamford is a tumult of cheery weirdness, winning hearts with a childlike whisper as she presents her idiosyncratic vision of the world. She drops comedic bits—unexpected impressions, goony faces, far-flung metaphors—like bread crumbs, keeping the audience intrigued, regardless of how bizarre things may seem.
In Bamford’s amazing 2012 release, Special Special Special, she performed an entire set in her living room for an audience comprising her parents; get excited for whatever oddball stroke of genius she might have in store during her set at Carolines tonight.
