Movie Info

In her first special since her hit show Lady Dynamite, Maria Bamford is back and ready to make things awkward with Maria Bamford: Old Baby. Expect the unconventional with a special that moves through a series of odd L.A. performance venues, exploring the relationship between Maria and her various audiences. Maria takes on dog park philosophers, mismatched in-laws, hard-to-move merchandise, therapy songs, audience abandonment issues, and the true story of peek-a-boo.

  • Maria Bamford's erratic, scatterbrained comedy has always been an acquired taste, but her latest special proves she's a manic genius.

  • The venues in this roaming special may change, but whether she's performing for a group on the street or for one person at home, she kills.

  • Maria Bamford is a genius, able to play with form without the ego or cynicism of many lauded deconstructionists. Her comedy and invention is self-inspired.

  • [Maria] Bamford is on her own again in Old Baby, and I'm tempted to say it's her strongest comedy special yet, though I almost certainly pronounced her last one the same.

  • Indeed, you can think of Ms. Bamford as the Wes Anderson of stand-up: Both are refined artists whose meticulous and sensitive set pieces are formally daring and stubbornly committed to a distinctive aesthete's sensibility.

  • Maria Bamford's unique ability to meld angst, annoyance, joy, and giddy good will into an exhilarating, buoyant whole is a miracle of its own, and it never gets boring.
