[Netflix] Lady Dynamite

Have been enjoying this show recently despite thinking the humour would probably be a little too off kilter for me. Maria Bamford has won me round with her eccentricities, neurosis and tomfoolery.

It has a touch of Louie to it in that it's supposedly semi-autobiographical but it is peppered with Mitch Hurwitz' (Arrested Development) peculiar and novel take on humour and Maria Bamford takes her character and storylines to some pretty bizarre places.

The trailer for the show doesn't do it justice and it's definitely not for everyone but as a slice of 30 minute madness it's been one of my favourite new shows this season. Jump in at episode 4 - if the inappropriate swearing and awkward date with Brendan Routh doesn't muster a slight titter then it's probably not for you.

Need to check this out. I love Louie and enjoy Maria Bamford's stand-up comedy too so hoping I enjoy this.

She's not exactly mainstream when it comes to comedy, so would definitely agree it's going to fall into the "not for everyone" category.
