Maria Bamford / Paramount Theatre / Denver / December 1 / Tickets
Maria Bamford started her performing arts career in Duluth, Minnesota at the age of 11. Her first role was in the Chester Park Elementary production of How the West Was REALLY Won! A short number of decades later and look at her now! Rolling Stone named her one of their 50 Funniest People. Soon after she became the winner of the 2014 American Comedy Award for Best Club Comic!
Maria recurred as Debris Bardeaux on Netflix’s Arrested Development reboot, for which she was praised as “fantastic” (Entertainment Weekly) a “standout” (TIME) and “perhaps one of the high points of the entire new season” (Black Book Magazine). She also recurred on fX’s critically-praised Louie, Comedy Central’s Kroll Show and USA’s Benched.
Maria is 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. She has made numerous late-night appearances, most recently on Conan and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
