Maria Bamford

The Duluth native continues to live up to the title of her Netflix series, "Lady Dynamite," with a stand-up career that only gets more eccentric with time. Her last TV special, "Old Baby," was so offbeat that Andy Kaufman might have gladly volunteered to be her opening act. None other than Judd Apatow has called her the funniest comic working today. Although Bamford has come back to her home state to shoot scenes for her sitcom and to speak at the University of Minnesota's recent commencement ceremonies, her local performances are few and far between. (7 & 9:30 p.m. Sat., Woman's Club of Minneapolis, 410 Oak Grove St. $33.
