I've always been more fond of comedians who make fun of themselves than those who pick at their audience for kicks. I mean, c'mon, do you really want to pay for public humiliation? Luckily, Maria Bamford takes the spotlight off of the crowd and places it on her own mental problems. Jokes aside, Bamford does suffer from Bipolar Disorder. In her act, she typically jokes about her issues with depression and a dysfunctional family. Way to turn the negative into a positive (and a paycheck)! Maybe laughter really is the best medicine.
