Maria Bamford is one of the greatest comedians of our time. You may have seen her in a whole bunch of standup comedy specials or her Netflix series, Lady Dynamite, or her current web series Noooo-CD. You might have heard her comedy albums or caught her doing voiceover work on a million different animated series. She may be the funniest human who has ever walked the planet.
But if we were to judge her by her parking habits alone, she is a very bad person who hurts other motorists and harms society itself.
Maria once parked her car in front of a fire hydrant. At Los Angeles International Airport. And then just left it there. For days. And she’s been known to hog the bus stop with her car, thus inconveniencing the entire public transit system. But Maria wants to be better, and on this episode she employs the famous 12-step recovery plan in order to get her life back together.
Drift off to sleep with Maria’s healing ruminations and conciliatory redemption.

About the show
Getting to sleep can be difficult sometimes. Now you can achieve that urgently needed rest by taking advantage of our most precious natural resource: celebrities. Each week on the slyly humorous and reassuring Sleeping With Celebrities, host John Moe talks with a different guest from the world of entertainment about something they know a lot about. The conversation is guaranteed to be just interesting enough to draw your attention away from your own swirling anxieties but never interesting enough to keep you awake. No startling revelations, no dramatic screaming confrontations, but plenty of low-key dialogue, intricately laced deadpan comedy, and a ticket to dreamland.
