    Maria Bamford speaks in many voices. No, She is not an impressionist, unless you count the stellar impression of her mom. Maria feels her high-pitched voice does not command respect, as a result, she has taken on many voices to help her tell her wickedly funny jokes. Decidedly off-beat, Maria has a wide-eyed innocence that comes shining through on this, her debut recording.

    Overall

    I'm at a loss to describe Maria, maybe because it's like trying to define what's funny. I like some intellectual meat on my funny bones, I like surprise, I like smart, I like honest and I like open. She has an amazing repertoire of voices that she uses deftly to skewer types of people we all have to deal with on the job, on the street, in our families. This recording revolves a lot around the tribulations of a single woman - if that's you it may have extra resonance. Bottom line, Maria makes me laugh, loud and often. I think she's a national treasure and I hope she gets the recognition she deserves for being a unique and hilarious voice for many years now.

    If you haven't yet begun to suspect that the most absurd things in life may be the closest to the truth, Maron will make a staunch believer out of you. At the very least, you're liable to find you've developed an uncontrollable urge to clap your hands and shout, "Again! Again!" when this finally winds down.

    Overall

    Maron has been on the cutting of the stand-up comedy world for over 25 years now, and is finally calming down just enough to make friends faster than he creates enemies. Despite the title of this recording, he is now, at last, finally selling out shows, without I should add, selling out his audience. Marc has a mind that makes improbable leaps and can run with an idea into dark corners not usually associated with comedy. If you like performers who rattle off jokes one after the other, play-act different characters, or get really funny only after you've had 5 or 6 beers, Maron may confuse and dismay you. If you like your comedy smart, honest, inventive, daring, manic, and yes, sometimes angry, you ought to check out Marc Maron.
