"Lady Dynamite," which had a two-season run, is the story of Maria Bamford - a bipolar standup comedian who returns to Los Angeles after spending time in recovery. The show includes flashbacks to her family in Duluth and her time in the hospital.
Bamford was Debrie Bardeaux on "Arrested Development" and has voiced characters on "BoJack Horseman," "Home Movies," "Word Girl" and more.
"The Maria Bamford Show," a mid-2000s webseries, was partly based on her life and was set in Duluth - including a performance at the Pioneer Bar. In 2013 Bamford recorded a comedy special in her own living room with just her parents as the audience.
