For comedian Maria Bamford, nothing is off the table. 

She is brutally honest in her comedy about sex and dating, conditions like Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and Bipolar disorder. Her candid approach has made her, by many estimates, one of the best stand-ups in the industry

Host Frank Stasio talks with Bamford about her career as a stand-up comedian and the many intricacies that make her such a perplexing figure in entertainment. 

Bamford is performing at The Carolina Theater in Durham tomorrow night at 8pm.
