Spend an intimate evening with Maria Bamford in her cozy 'shot-at-home' comedy special. Gleeful, thrilling, and oh so awkward Maria gets snug with her two person audience consisting of only her parents.
Series is based on what Maria has accepted to be "her life." The occasionally surreal episodes, refracted across multiple periods of the actor/comedian's life, tell the story of a woman who loses - and then finds - herself.

In his first stand-up special, Hasan Minhaj weaves humorous and heartbreaking anecdotes to tell his life story as an Indian-American Muslim. Topics include racism, bullying and meeting the demanding expectations of his immigrant parents.
Old Baby is an interesting way to watch a stand-up routine. There are moments when her bits don't land with me....or the audience, however, it's surprisingly fun to watch her relish those awkward moments.
I had a smile on my face throughout most of this special and there were multiple times where I was laughing, pretty uncontrollably.
It's not for everyone however, it is for me.
