My favorite standup comedian of the moment is Maria Bamford. She is smart, silly, subversive, sometimes sick. She is the rarest of show-business mammals: an original voice.
She’s down with Patton Oswalt and his “Comedians of Comedy” crew. (You know I digs Oswalt.) Bamford is on the road with them right now... Pittsburgh tonight, Chicago on Thursday, and then to Ann Arbor, Buffalo, Cleveland...
Maria Bamford has put out two comedy albums: “The Burning Bridges Tour” (2003) and “How to WIN!” (2007). I’m streaming a little bit of both on my Vox blog.

Then click here and hear her goof on Nigella Lawson and Alicia Keys. (How’s that for unusual targets?)
