Lady Dynamite

Available on Netflix
As LADY DYNAMITE star Maria Bamford puts it, "I'm a 45-year-old actress who's clearly sun-damaged! And I have a show!" She does! And in this half-hour comedy we follow her character, a very similar actress also named Maria Bamford, through some of her more absurd life experiences: installing a bench in front of her house to try to get to know her neighbors, entering group therapy to try to figure out if she's racist, performing in a family band with her reluctant parents. Bamford knows she's not perfect -- she struggles with mental health issues and makes odd decisions. But she's trying to make something of her life and her career, and viewers will find themselves both laughing with, and rooting for, this brilliantly silly yet relatable character.
Starring Maria Bamford, Fred Melamed, Ana Gasteyer
