Who Is Maria Bamford

A unique and original voice in comedy, Maria Bamford isn’t your traditional stand-up. Rather than telling one-liners or making observations, Bamford creates short character pieces and performs multiple voices (all of them funny) at once. Her comedy goes to some dark places — family dysfunction, depression and anxiety — but it all comes out filtered through her sweet, odd persona. There are no other comics like her.

Maria Bamford has a net worth of $300 thousand dollars, as of 2020.
