Pick of the Day: Slumber Party with Maria Bamford: LA DWC Benefit 4/17

Maria Bamford never ceases to amaze both as a comedian and a human being especially when it comes to how much she gives of herself to us all. She did so many hours of virtual comedy right as the pandemic started and then even went as far as to do a comedy-group therapy hybrid show as a live-stream.

Now, she’s even topping all of that with her latest live-stream, Slumber Party, exclusively at Rushtix, that will be raising money for the LA Downtown Women’s Center. On April 17th, starting at 8PM PT/11PM ET, Maria will not only be doing her latest hour of stand-up and a live Q&A with the audience from the live-stream chat, but she’ll also be reading all the viewers a book while they all go to sleep and keep the stream going as she sleeps all the way until she wakes up. To our knowledge, this will be the first live comedy event of its kind and leave it to Maria to blaze a trail by sleeping during a show.

Tickets are $10 and proceeds (after costs) go to the LA Downtown Women’s Center.
