Hello once again. I have decided to take a bit of a direction with my articles. I will now be reviewing all comedians that I have listened to on Spotify. I consider myself quite the comic enthusiast and have listened to every single comedian on Spotify to my knowledge and I am constantly looking for new listening material. Comedy is the spice of life. It literally is what happens when you turn a frown upside down, because tragedy plus time equals comedy. Over the next however long this takes I intend to provide the people of the world with a laymen’s opinion of stand-up comedy.
Maria Bamford… That name alone you can hardly think, if you’ve ever heard her that is, without putting a goofy high pitched voice to it, and that’s a good thing. Maria is probably in my top 5 for most hilarious female comics and probably just comics in general. Her beautiful absurdness mixed with her subject matter makes you think about things in a magical way. Just listening to the first track on her album,Unwanted Thoughts Syndrome, captures her type of comedy perfectly. She is calling her mother in the most adorable voice leaving a message on her machine as the baby Jesus. It is a riot. Her type of comedy just does everything write she has great timing and is just so comfortable with her character that it almost makes you wonder if she is that weird in real life. Definitely someone to invite to the Christmas party.
Her voice and delivery is like a real life embodiment of the little voice in your head that makes you laugh when you are in line for coffee or sitting on the park bench, people watching. Maria really makes you realize that life can be amazing and magical if you just put a little high pitched voice on everything.
Here is a link to the above mentioned track below:
