Maria Bamford is no stranger to the comedy scene, performing stand-up since 1989. She’s taken her comedy talents to a number of television shows like the animated series CatDog, Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, and the long running PBS series WordGirl. She’s also appeared with Louis CK and on several stand-up specials, but now she’s getting her very own show on Netflix.
Stephen Colbert called Maria Bamford his favorite comedian on Earth, so it’s not surprising that this hilarious comedian is getting her time to shine. The show, Lady Dynamite, is a “mockumentary” of sorts based on Bamford’s real life. The series showcases the comedian as a fictionalized version of herself, a 45-year-old comedian getting her own comedy series. If you want to watch Lady Dynamite online, here’s what you’ll need to do.
