5. Maria Bamford, Ask Me About My New God!
The joke about stand-up comics is that they’re all mentally ill, though Bamford has taken it a step further by fully disclosing the various prescription drugs she has consumed in order to overcome various hang-ups right there in the liner notes for her most recent album. She addresses those Target commercials, her ever evolving relationship with members of her family, the horrors of dating over the age of 40, and of course Paula Deen. Bamford would have made it on this list just for the cavalcade of food-related psychosis that is the track “Paula Deen’s Suicide Note,” but the rest of Ask Me About My New God! is just as satisfying.
