I think I first saw Maria Bamford on a youtube episode of Tough Crowd back when I was getting into "American comedy" and still calling it that as if it was a thing. That sole appearance left an impression on me and a mere two years later I decided to buy one of her CDs. Even though I'd already heard enough of her stuff to consider myself a fan, this album still has plenty of great material I might not have heard otherwise. The track "Ventriloquist Prayer" almost justifies the entire purchase for me. The Yoda bit had me half way between gut wrenching laughter and hysterical squealing, like that time my kidney burst inside me.

What I love about her comedy is that there are so many dimensions to it, to the point where if you don't enjoy it, it's probably your own fault really. She actually reminds me of Attell a bit, in that they are both great writers whose material is only strengthened by the unique ways they deliver their ideas; ironic enough to let you enjoy the wackiness but dark enough to feel like the satire matters.

Anyway, buy the album. If you don't love it, you should spend a day with a plastic bin over your head. See if it's more fun than this, yeah?

Maria is a truly original comedian and this is a great record. I discovered Maria via the Marc Maron podcast, went on to watch her amazing show (the Maria Bamford Show!) on the internet and an now working my way through her albums and specials.
Like much of her material, this record is sweet, jarring, eye-opening, absurd, sensitive and hilarious.

I Love This CD! 13 Dec. 2003
By Vijay Y. Khosa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first listened to this debut CD, what immediately grabbed my attention was the dynamic array of voices she easily switches into -- they almost take on a life of their own, and you can vividly picture the characters in front of you as you burst out in laughter.
The execution of her jokes is near perfection, and she doesn't miss a beat in her delivery.
On a number of the tracks, her humor takes on an almost confessional quality, and one has to admire her willingness to be open in front of audiences which may or may not be just as willing to listen. On other tracks, she tackles conventional topics in unconventional ways, yet does ~NOT~ insult the intelligence of her audience.
This is simple (and equally insightful) comedy that crosses many different boundaries. I played the CD earlier in the evening to my 6-year-old nephew, and he loved it. Even a friend of mine who moved to DC from Germany and doesn't "get" a lot of American culture/humor thinks she is hilarious!
I've never recommended a stand-up CD in my life, but I highly recommend "Burning Bridges."
It's amazing to me this artist isn't more popular than she currently is, and it's only a matter of time before the entertainment industry catches on to what many who are hungering for something new and better in comedy have already known for a long time -- a talented phenomena where jagged brutal honesty clothed behind a warmly kind demeanor does exist, and exists without compromise. Thank you Maria Bamford for providing an original voice that's been missing in contemporary entertainment.

Bamford at her Best! 9 Dec. 2003
By Eugene Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At last, Maria Bamford's wonderful comedy is on a CD!
Recorded at the Acme Comedy Company in Minneapolis, MN on October 25 & 26, 2002, Maria is in top form as she performs most of her classic material plus a few gems never shown on TV. This is by far the most complete collection of Maria's comedy to date.
Maria may appear to be a sweet, Midwestern blonde at first blush, but look out... beneath the beaming smiles and vulnerability are the lethal satirical jabs of a very witty and intelligent performer.
It is so refreshing to hear a comedian who doesn't rely on foul language and venom to get laughs. Instead she relies on her intelligence and her unique view of the world... not to mention her incredible array of voices and vocal sound effects! It is no wonder she is in demand for cartoon voiceovers as well as for her stand-up comedy.
If you are a Maria Bamford fan, get this CD. You won't regret it.
If you haven't heard Maria's unique comedy, catch her next TV performance and see why her fans are so crazy about her. Then buy the CD so you can hear all the good stuff they cut from the TV shows.
Maria, you rock! For Reals!

The Burning Bridges Tour-Maria Bamford 15 Dec. 2003
By Marty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For any fan of stand up, or anyone with ears, you must buy this CD. Maria can be seen on Comedy Central from time to time, but now you get to hear the whole act. I have listened to it over and over again, there is a lot of funny material here! I played it for a friend and she thought it was hilarious too. Maria has the uncanny ability to use her many voices to tell the stories of her life and making fun of her mother like no one else can.
Fulfill your potential and order it today.
Good times.

Very Impressive Debut Album 1 Feb. 2006
By Jonathan S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There's a bit of a lack right now of really unique, standout female comics, and I'm keeping a close eye on Bamford. Her act works because she A) is down-to-Earth and sincere, not an invented "character"; and B) her voices take her beyond the formulaic joke-telling practiced by most comics. And an important part of why her voices are so effective is that she never uses them in an announced, "hey guys, I'd like to do some impressions now" kind of way. Her characters come up naturally, and are used to discuss interesting subjects and social points. Characters presented conversationally as a tool for satire is infinitely more interesting than the almost Vaudevillian "Here are my impressions guys" format.

Maria Bamford's work on "Burning Bridges" is diverse in subject matter, yet consistently funny. It's an excellent introduction to Bamford's vulnerable and insightful presence. Along with her partners who tour together as the "Comedians of Comedy", she is underated, inspired, and hopefully a star in the making.

Best female standup out there... 20 Dec. 2006
By broadway309 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is honestly some the best standup comedy I've ever heard. Maria is unique and quirky in her humor, and this cd really does her justice. I've yet to find one person who hasn't laughed out loud several times during this cd. While her many (very impressive) voices are her main attraction, she doesn't overdo them...she backs everything up with solid comedy that is actually FUNNY. She's also very quotable.

Too many female comediennes now seem like they're just struggling to make it in a man's world, so their routines are usually either too wraunchy, desperate, or man-hating. Not even a hint of that with Maria. She's brilliantly hilarious and her comedy is a brand of its own. An undeniable true talent.
Entertaining, energetic, and witty- you'll become a Maria Bamford fan within 10 minutes of listening to this cd.
