Show Notes

Lady Dynamite, Ms Maria Bamford is comedy royalty. Stephen Colbert called her his “favourite comedian on earth” and Judd Apatow said she is “the funniest woman in the world.” They're both right. She's something special. Brutally honest, she is best known for her prolific comedy involving hilarious portrayals of her family and litany of jokes and situations that demystify the stigma around mental health, depression and anxiety. Her work in this area has literally saved lives.  In this episode, Nelly and Maria talk a lot about about mental health, memories of their misspent youth in Edinburgh Scotland, the benefits or insanity of cold water swimming and Maria's husband, artist Scott Marvel Cassidy. Strap in. It's about to get marvellous. And, you're welcome.
