Fans of the Netflix series “Lady Dynamite” should take note.

Maria Bamford will perform at Fresno’s Tower Theatre next spring.

Tickets for the April 28 show are $30-$35 and available starting at 10 a.m. Friday online, by phone at 559-485-9050 or in person at the Tower Theatre box office.

Pre-sale tickets are available online now through Dec. 14 with the promo code FUNNY.

“Lady Dynamite” earned a quick fan base last year, despite (or more likely because of) the fact it was surrealist comedy about an actress in her late 40s who is recovering from a severe mental breakdown. The show – its second season is streaming now – is loosely based on Bamford’s life.

But Bamford has long had a cult following among those who knew where to look – whether it was the “Adventure Time” cartoon, or “BoJack Horseman,” or the fourth season of “Arrested Development,” on “Word Girl,” “The Legend of Korra,” or the comedian’s own Web series.
