Maria Bamford’s latest comedy special was performed only in front of her parents, watch for $5

Maria Bamford isn’t as well known as her fellow Comedians of Comedy Zack Galafianakis, Patton Oswalt, and Brian Posehn but her Unwanted Thoughts Syndrome album may one day be one the same plane as specials like Bill Cosby: Himself and the best of Louis CK. She has a certain type of humor that doesn’t apply to everyone but for the people that crack up at her ridiculous voices and mortifying family stories, she’s one of the best.

Now Bamford is the latest comic to mimic Louis CK’s $5, direct to fan comedy special. Her decision to sell it that way takes guts, putting her in a rarified air of comedians that have fan bases to support that business model (Louie, Aziz, Jim Gaffigan, Rob Delaney). But there’s a catch. Maria Bamford: The Special Special Special! (available now) was performed for an audience of two, her parents.
