Maria Bamford is hilarious, which is why her career has seen her land a slew of TV, film and voice-over roles over the years while also rising to the top of the stand-up comedy world. But you probably know her as the lady in that red track suit from the Target Christmas season commercials from a couple years back. And that’s OK; she was hilarious in that role. Give her comedy a chance and you’ll see she’s a lot more than a quirky lady trying to sell you discounted goods — Bamford’s act is delightfully self-deprecating, inventive and makes you feel like your own family isn’t as weird as you thought.
