Skirball Center for the Performing Arts - New York University

In partnership with the 2013 New York Comedy Festival, NYU Skirball presents the hysterical comedic renaissance woman, Maria Bamford!

“Meek-voiced Maria Bamford makes all other existentially dark comedians look like so many Carrot Tops.” Rolling Stone

Maria Bamford was named one of Rolling Stone’s 50 Funniest People of 2013 and was most recently praised for her role as Debrie Bardeaux on Netflix’s Arrested Development reboot as “fantastic” (Entertainment Weekly) a “standout” (TIME) and “perhaps one of the
high points of the entire new season” (Black Book Magazine). Bamford is the creator and star of the critically praised Maria Bamford: the special special special!, which named one of its Top 10 Stand-Up Specials of 2012, and the cult hit web series The Maria Bamford Show, which screened at the Museum of Art and Design and was described as a “cold blast of brilliance” by The New Yorker.

NYU Skirball has a rich and hilarious history of our fall comedy headliners breaking out into international stardom, including Rob Delaney, Zach Galifianakis, Aziz Ansari, Kristen Schaal, and Reggie Watts. In partnership with the 2013 New York Comedy Festival we are proud to present the comedienne that Judd Apatow calls “hysterically funny!”
