Lady Dynamite 

"Lady Dynamite" review by Eva Diaz  7/10/16
Season 1 airs on Netflix

This is a surreal comedy, now streaming on Netflix.  It's loosely-based on the life of a comedienne and voice- over actress, Maria  Bamford.  I will just come right out and say it I very rarely watch these type of silly comedy shows because they are not the type of humor I like at all.  Also, I feel it is trying too hard to be funny, and it didn't make me laugh once.  For example, the montage at the beginning is clearly trying to make fun of feminine hygiene commercials as well as 70's sitcom openings like "That Girl" or "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," but it just went on way too long.

Surreal comedy can be very good, like "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Just being silly and weird is not funny.  I don't know, maybe it's too subtle or it's spoofing things I don't know about. I just didn't get it.

If you like surreal comedy shows or are a Maria Bamford fan, you may like this show.  There are some great cameos by Maria's famous friends, and for that reason alone, I will give this show a 1 out of 5 stars.

We need more episode guide recap writers, article writers, MS FrontPage and Web Expression users, graphics designers, and more, so please email us if you can help out!  More volunteers always needed!  Thanks!
