Maria Bamford is one of the most original comedians performing stand up today, with a unique perspective on comedy and the universe. And this Friday, she will sit down and talk with Ron Bennington for an hour to record an episode of SiriusXM’s important Unmasked series. Anyone in the New York area can request tickets to be in the studio audience for this amazing event.
Bamford is doing press for her new Netflix hour, Maria Bamford: Old Baby, which debuts on Tuesday, May 2. Maria has been creatively crushing lately- she recently released a strong new album, 20%, and her Netflix series Lady Dynamite was renewed for a second season. And according to a recent interview with People Magazine, she’s the happiest and most stable she’s ever been. It’s well known that Bamford has struggled with mental health issues, including bi-polar disorder and a breakdown a few years back that resulted in her spending time in an institution.
Maria will sit down with Ron Bennington to tape the episode of Unmasked at SiriusXM on Friday at SiriusXM’s infamous “Fishbowl” performance studio. That’s this Friday, May 5, 2017 at 11am. The tickets to attend are free, but there aren’t a lot of seats, so request fast.
