Stars: Maria Bamford, Fred Melamed, Mary Kay Place

Loosely autobiographical, Lady Dynamite stars Maria Bamford as herself, as she moves back to Los Angeles to restart her career after spending six months in recovery for bipolar disorder. Serious depiction of mental illness is interspersed with surreal humor in dizzying fashion, often jumping between timelines and breaking the fourth wall. Lady Dynamite is an acquired taste, but it’s a treat for Bamford fans.
