FREDERICK, Md. - Sept. 27, 2018 - PRLog -- Star of the Hit Netflix Series "Lady Dynamite", Stand-up comedian Maria Bamford is coming to the Weinberg Center on Saturday October 27th as part of the bi-annual anti-drunk driving fundraiser The "Over the Limit Comedy Fest", hosted by local charity The Safe Ride Foundation.

Tickets begin at $39 and may be purchased online at, by calling the Box Office at 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick Street. No discounts are available for students, children, military, and seniors at this performance.

Bamford, with her manic and often inspired quirkiness, will be headlining the evening which also showcases featured performances by local Frederick County stand-up comedians Joe Gilpin and Dominic Rivera.

The 8:00 PM performance will be preceded by a one-hour "Pre-Show Party" featuring drinks as well as awesome giveaways. It's sure to be a great night of hilarity for charity!  Wayne Dorsey, President of The Safe Ride Foundation noted, "We were ecstatic to book Maria. We had been eyeing her heavily ever since our last installment in June featuring Myq Kaplan. We absolutely love her sense of humor, and her level of stardom is something that we are very excited to bring to Frederick County." All proceeds from The "Over the Limit" Comedy Fest will go directly towards preventing drunk driving in Frederick County.

Bamford's recent one-hour Netflix special "Old Baby" is a hysterical hour that redefines eccentric, and also takes a new spin on comedy specials by being filmed in several different venues simultaneously! "In my latest Netflix specials, I was most fascinated by the experiment of if people's perception of comedy changed based on if I'm performing in front of literally 2,000 people, or even two people," said Bamford. "It was up to the viewer to decide whether a gigantic or intimate crowd made the show 'better' or not."
