Maria Bamford coming to the Tampa Improv
Wait, what? Since when do we here at SoundcheckCorp. care about comedy that isn't sung by New Zealanders?
Well, we care when one of the Comedians of Comedy comes to town. Maria Bamford, an alt-comedy scene hero who co-starred with Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Brian Posehn in the 2005 documentary The Comedians of Comedy, will be at the Tampa Improv from March 11-14. Tickets are $14-$18. Click here for details.
Bamford's style of comedy is oddly quirky and quirkily odd, with plenty of voices and takes on her dysfunctional childhood. She's performed at just about any comedy festival you can name, and recorded several television specials and appearances on programs like Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
All in all: A nice get for the Improv. Kudos.
