Maria Bamford stars as a fictionalized version of herself in this comedy, loosely based on what the dynamic comic and actress 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.
[Bamford's] brilliant new online series Lady Dynamite, which manages to take TV comedy another jolt forward, shows a version of her life that included her efforts in the comedy world as well as her struggles with mental health issues back in Duluth.
It's a show that follows the well-worn track of stand-up-comic-does-TV but it ambitiously seeks to subvert not just the sitcom genre, but more dangerously the stand-up-comic-does-TV sitcom genre. It's risky, but it pays off.
Lady Dynamite was a blast of technicolour goofiness. Characters turned into animals. There were cartoon interludes. Bamford's adorable pug spoke with the voice of Werner Herzog. Time and again, the joyful strangeness outweighed the fear.
