Maria Bamford - "Plan B"

Wow. What a fuckin' masterpiece.

I'd say that Maria's latest CD, "unwanted thoughts syndrome", was the best comedy album of last year. I used to think she was talented but a bit silly. I changed my mind completely after that album. Her dark, neurotic, abrsive side came out at full speed. This time, her voices and her jokes were way more sinister and rooted in personal issues than her adorable outside facade could tell.

Sweet Marina from this forums told me, after seeing her at a live taping of WTF, how "Visual" she was.

When this dvd came out, i didnt hesitate and bought immediately.

And, man is this INCREDIBLE.

It isnt a stand-up special as yopu would usually presume, although it's insanely funny.

It's a one-woman show that depicts this pretty, hyper-intelligent, tazmanian devil's descent into her own inner demons.

You see her charcters come to life as her body litterallyt doesnt stand still for a second, underlining her jokes with constant movements, tics, transformations. I've never seen ANYTHING like it.

There's a trailer but it doesnt give the sheer energy of the whole performance. Please trust me and get this.
