If you’ve been watching TV the last week or so, you’ve probably seen this series of commercials, advertising Target’s post Thanksgiving weekend sale. They feature comedian Maria Bamford, playing two (twin?) sisters who are both going to be shopping at Target during this year’s Black Friday madness. One is a perky, aggressive, Type-A personality and the other is more homely and laid back.
My wife and I have seen Maria Bamford perform her comedy routine a few times, in L.A. and at Coachella a few years ago. She’s a founding member of the Comedians Of Comedy, which also includes Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn, and she’s always hilarious. Her actual personality is not exactly like either of the sisters in the ad, but I hope she gains some new fans from these spots.
Since there have been a series of them airing, I am posting a few of the best ones below.
