Maria Bamford 

When: Thu., Aug. 7, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $20
Listening to Maria Bamford, with her wispy, almost mousy, comedic delivery, is by far the sweetest way to hear stories about anxiety, depression and the trials of a dysfunctional life. Bamford has a gift for overanalyzing every flaw while simultaneously chuckling at her self-deprecating analysis of depression; it's the kind of hilarity that makes you question whether you should really be laughing at it. With 25 years of stand-up experience, Bamford has explored every aspect of her own mental stability with plenty of humor, and became a must-see touring act by the late '90s. She was the first female comedian to have two half-hour specials on Comedy Central. Later, she, along with heavy-hitters Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Brian Posehn, starred in The Comedians of Comedy, a parody of the comedy-tour documentaries popular in the early 2000s. Over the past 11 years, she's released six comedy albums through the network's record label, including the 2009 hit Unwanted Thoughts Syndrome, and created a comedic web series called "Ask My Mom," based on advice from her own mother. Bamford's also become recognizable from her stint in holiday Target commercials, her voicework on Catroon Network's Adventure Time and playing drug addict DeBrie Bardeaux in the fourth season of Arrested Development. The versatile comedic actress will be making a one-night-only stop in Salt Lake City on the last leg of her national tour. (Gavin Sheehan, City Weekly)
