Lady Dynamite is a sitcom that’ll blow your mind

Quirky stand-up Maria Bamford teams up with the brains behind South Park and Arrested Development for this surreal-ly funny sitcom.

Sit back and let a tsunami of surreal humour wash over you, as this brilliantly bizarre and very brave new sitcom takes you deep into the hilarious and unsettling psyche of mental illness.

Based on the real life of its star, Maria Bamford, it charts her struggles to make it big in Hollywood, while battling bipolar disorder and enduring long stints in an absurdly grim psychiatric hospital in Minnesota.

There are flights of fantasy, parodies, stand-up routines and frequent holes punched in the fourth wall, in a show that manages to treat mental breakdowns in a sympathetic and funny way.
