Maria Bamford: Old Baby (2017)
Critic Reviews for Maria Bamford: Old Baby
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.
The beauty of their domestic setting is that it's imbued with context, from the painting of their dog to the little bride-and-groom figurines resting atop the couch. This feels like any old day for them, just hanging out and goofing around.
