I’m in love with Maria Bamford. You may recognize her as the hyper shopper in Target’s Black Friday ads.
I have always been a fan of her comedy, but her recent New York Times interview, The Weird, Scary and Ingenious Brain of Maria Bamford, is what really got me crushing on Maria. Here are three reasons why:
1. She’s talking about her mental illness.
2. She’s talking about her thoughts of suicide.
3. She does both in a brilliantly fun and funny way, making mental illness a more normal topic for the rest of us talk about without shame or stigma.
Plus, she loves her dog, like me!
