MARIA BAMFORD!! MARIA BAMFORD!! (Yes, she deserves all caps.)
Maria (fucking) bamford!
Haha that is what it's like. Except she forgot to mention the mandatory 3 day minimum stay for observation.
you get mad respect here, maria! we all love you
I LOVE YOU MARIA!!!!
oh god Maria… marry me!
Maria Bamford fans: Heavy breathing
I love this series, and I love the Julie Miller cameo.
Uhhh. It seems they let her out a bit early.
With Maria Bamford and Chris Gethard, this has quickly become my favorite series!
THIS WAS GREAT!
Thank you. That was amazing.
Love me some Maria Bamford. Still remember her first CC Presents. Stay strong you brilliant lunatic you
Thanks Maria. When people ask me what it was like I'll just link them to this.
#TEAMBAMFORD I'm so so so excited about her new show. THE WORLD NEEDS TO LOVE HER LIKE I DO.
Dude they let her out early I was in there for 9 days
Were you at harbor ucla? Sounds like you were at harbor.
She's a legend! 🙌😃
now i'm all dicked up in the head
I love finding new Maria Bamford material!
yep this is totally accurte
OK FINE I'll watch it a fifth time but THAT'S IT
at least you get to be happy about it?
It seems every psych ward in America looks exactly the same. That doesn't even look slightly different from the other one(s)
She left out the part where they have to watch you shave and check your fucking vital signs every 15 minutes. I guess its hard to make that funny and I missed the point
At 2:55, the subtitles use the word "cuckold" instead of "google".
Hmm. I'm very shocked to see both ppl being polite in these comments & ppl semi sharing they're own experiences. This comment section is a winner! Like, seriously.
Is this supposed to be funny? Fuck Reagan for cutting care for the mentally unstable, and fuck you for mocking them!
So funny and so sadly true, damn Maria is so effing amazing in her characterizations……My own proud story is that I smuggled some of those little teeny tiny pencils out of the psych ward in my underwear. See, I did learn something in there.
tiiny little letters. in pencil. so I'm sure it went to the TOP!
Thanks Maria is a saint.
Everybody loves Bamford !
YES YES YES!
665th like!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who's next?
haha, turn on the closed captions. It said "…at least wait until I'm out of the room to cuckold me."
lucid and brilliant
SO glad to see more material from Lady bamford who has meant the world, stars and planets to me since the early days of her show.
This is So TRUE ! The Psych Ward People will think anything you do in life is "ABNORMAL" . I think they just feel that way to keep you there and they get payed for having you there. The Longer you stay , the more " Profit" you become for THEM !
Maria Bamford is a Comic GENIUS ! I'm bowing and chanting…I'm not worthy…I'm not worthy…She's so Innovative (Y)
As funny as she makes it seem, she is also being very truthful about how fucked up these places can be. There is often nothing therapeutic about them.
"Can I have a graham cracker?" "Only one."
Omg, Maria!! I almost feel bad for laughing, but it's so deliciously dark and funny!
This should be required viewing for anyone working in psychiatry or psychology.
yes. yes. yes. truth. all of it. i love maria bamford. this is genius art!… and TRUTH!
Every mental health tech ever (desk lady). 🙄
The mental health system in the U.S. fucking sucks.
Maria Bamford is awesome in Lady Dynamite on Netflix. It's what you would imagine a sitcom would look like starring the Bamfoo. Comedy gold.
maria bamford is my spirit animal
Never wanted to kill myself more than in a psych ward
This might be the best video on youtube
She forgot about how horrible havign a crazier than thou roomate is….. and the disgusting food…
people who work at psych wards are also crazy, just able to get a paycheck regularly.
It was not like if I was Richard Pryor. XD
I need to be admitted to the psych ward. I'm scared shitless. But if I don't, I'm going to die. Which, ironically, is what I want.
I felt bad…. I didn't think it was funny
amazing! its funny because its true.
This is funny and really serious at the same time. I like it.
So I was in the psych ward(as you do) LOL. This is exactly how mental wards are. It was less then helpful for me.
"I didn't wanna go in but the cops 5150'd me and took away my shoelaces" we've all been there
Maria makes a pretty smoking brunette. It's her piercing blue eyes..like a Siberian husky.
Harley Quinn? Anyone? Ah? AAhhhhh?
This is too accurate XD
She captures the experience perfectly
I wish she had her own movie where she was most of the characters.
LOL. this is genius.
Closed captioning; "…wait 'til I leave the room to cuckold me".Uh… doesn't work that way.
"I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug."—portion of the Hippocratic Oath, revised and updated by Louis Lasagna. Really.
I've been hospitalized 26 times. I wish I found a hospital as funny as this
Maria is the greatest person to listen to on mental illness, because she's honest AND its hilarious. Watch The Maria Bamford Show on Youtube, a whole mini-series she made about mental illness where she plays every character. It is AMAZING! I watch it every time I'm really depressed and it makes me feel so much better
Worked as a therapist for three years in a psych ward and genius Maria as always is right on.
Why am I not surprised the doctor googled her while she's in the room omg. I'm glad she can laugh at it but this is the truth for many people and our mental health system sucks
oh yeah. i have been admitted to a psych ward, and it's this AT BEST.at worst, it's my experience. and oh boy.but you meet some chill people there. who knew psych wards are where you find the most relatable people
'ya i was trying to kill myself… but i'm not insssaaanne.' 'if you thought you felt bad before the psych ward, come on in, it's even worse!' my life and times ten years ago. i was in that bitch for months.
In the 90's they were far less terrible. It was standard to admit before you became profoundly sick. Insurance (if you are fortunate enough to have any) now will not pay for an admission until the person is in terrible, terrible shape and they discharge far to soon. As a result they are a hell staffed by exhausted, burned-out people. In '91 when I was admitted at 11pm; the nurse ordered me a huge turkey sandwich that I did not request. I started to suspect these people might care.
to cuckold me
Bipolar + SSRI's = troubleNot all will may put you in the hospital, but some will.
1:23 – 1:37 is how I feel. I want to check myself into the hospital. I have before but I don't have insurance right now. My brain is crazy and I need help. I won't do anything stupid and I know this is temporary. I'm sure YouTube is the last place I should be talking about this. I Love Maria Bamford! I was diagnosed with bipolar II some years back and I had everything under control as much as I could but, life sigh I have a lot of support for which I am very grateful. Thanks for listening!😆💊
It makes you so much more depressed. Ilost part of myself when i went their.they fucking hate all their patients, and are super condecending
I was in the psych ward for a week, i had the BEST experience i expected it being worse, it was great.
Rode in the back of a cop car once because of emotional breakdown. I'm six six tall and I don't fit in the back of a police car.
The Bammers! Come to sweden pretty please. I can host! <3
It must be a curse to be so much smarter than everyone around you like Maria obviously is. It could drive you crazy.
Too much reality. I'm not laughing
This is the best….with her playing all of the characters. 😂😂😂😂 like the Shrink!! The drag is killing me!!
in a psychiatric setting!
I've done a few stents in a couple mental facilities
I’m totally sharing tomorrow with my fellow patients in the behavioral partial hospital program I’m doing. I can’t believe they never heard of Maria Bamford. They’re gonna love her.
Love Maria Bamford
2:55 The captions replaced "google me" with "cuckold me" 😀
I think I've watched this at least a dozen times over the years, and it's still hilarious. My story isn't as interesting – the most awkard thing about my time in a psych ward was that one of the staff was a woman that had graduated the year before me in high school.
