Interviews Maria Bamford for Unmasked

Listen on iTunes Now.

Every Tuesday for the past few months we have been releasing one of our favorite episodes ’s epic interview series Unmasked from the archives. Our picks have come from different years in Unmasked’s 11 year history, as recent as 2016 and as far back as 2009 and the hours we’ve released include Jim Jefferies, Ali Wong, Louis C.K., , Bert Kreischer, Patrice O’Neal and more.

Today, we released a rare, brand new, just recorded Unmasked episode with one of the most interesting comedians working right now- Maria Bamford. Maria is brilliant and hilarious and beloved by fans and fellow comedians. She is nothing like anyone else performing today and we adore her.

Maria has a brand new hour, Old Baby, out on Netflix and as you might expect, Bamford takes the standard format of an hour special and turns it upside down and inside out. Her groundbreaking series Lady Dynamite was recently renewed for a second season too!

She taped an episode of Unmasked at the SiriusXM studios in their famed Fishbowl studio with a huge crowd of fans. It’s a fantastic whirlwind of an hour with Maria and her many amazing voices telling stories, talking politics, explaining the choices she made for her new special, and going inside the making of Lady Dynamite. It’s an incredibly fun and funny hour that Maria’s fans are going to adore, and for those not yet initiated into the Bamford camp, it’s a great introduction.

The Unmasked series which began in 2008 with a brilliant hour with Patrice O’Neal, has taped nearly 200 episodes since, documenting the careers of the most interesting comedy writers, directors, filmmakers, actors, screenwriters, satirists, political comedians, comedic musicians and of course, stand up comedians in the business. It is a veritable archive of the greatest comedy of our time. Past Unmasked guests have included , Bob Newhart, , Dan Aykroyd, Simon Pegg, , , Jim Jefferies, Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwait, Louis C.K., David Brenner, , Patrice O’Neal and over 150 more comedy greats.

Enjoy.
