Last summer, Maria Bamford joined the throng of must-binge Netflix shows with “Lady Dynamite.” The comedy, loosely based on her own life, was an instant hit, moving beyond diehard fans and capturing a larger audience. Now Bamford is back fo…

The best video ever hit the internet a few months back, in the form of a short teaser for James Franco‘s upcoming Tommy Wiseau movie “The Disaster Artist.” Now we have a full trailer, and are more excited than ever to see this insane piece of work.
