Comedian Maria Bamford featured on CNN

itemprop

Maria Bamford has turned poking fun at her dysfunctional family into a career. From tales of her sister's sad dating disasters, to her mother's claims that she looks mentally ill without makeup, to recounting her family's games of "Joy Wack-a-Mole," where each member manages to take another's joy down a notch, Bamford's stories are at times painfully awkward, though entirely relatable.

The Duluth-native comedian was recently featured on CNN.com as part of a series highlighting comedians ranting on various topics. In the clip, Bamford makes fun of her family, and shares her quirky thoughts on why dysfunction is sometimes functional.
