Third Frames: Maria Bamford

The one and only Miss Maria Bamford swung through Toronto for four sold-out shows at Comedy Bar last weekend, and of course didn’t disappoint. Those who might’ve been slightly skeptical about a headliner-length dosage of her (guilty) were put rightly in their place, and the die-hards walked away fully satisfied. She’s strange, she’s funny, and some might even say she’s delicious (long story).
