That Crazy Target Lady is Back: It Must be Christmas Time | Eastern North Carolina Now | Just today, November 17, 2011, I am witness to those zany Target commercials, with the maniacal Black Friday shopper for the 3rd year now, and I'm still laughing. Maria Bamford really cracks me up.

   Just today, November 17, 2011, I am witness to those zany Target commercials, with the maniacal Black Friday shopper for the 3rd year now, and I'm still laughing. Maria Bamford really cracks me up.

   Maria is a rare, matchless woman, with a bizarre sense of funny. Her comedy is an eclectic blend of total shock, with a sincere sense of the genuine expression of all that fills her ego - an ego that teeters wildly on her personal axis of weird.

    Hunter S. Thompson once, inadvertently, so famously rendered the description of what comprises who Maria is: "When the going gets tough ... the weird turn pro."

   Well, Maria is definitely a pro, and funnier than a three legged man in a Rum drinking contest. These Target commercials are the real deal of funny, and reminded me so much of her stand-up act when she played the Turnage Theater last Winter, just before the first days of Spring.

   I leave you with BCN's journal of that show of Maria's, mostly in images.
