The OkCupid username Maria Bamford used to meet her husband


Duluth native and funny-woman Maria Bamford is pretty open about her life's experiences.

She made an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday night to promote her new Netflix series, "Lady Dynamite," but the topic of conversation quickly turned to how she met her husband online.

Check out the interview below:

The comedian told Kimmel she met her husband, painter Scott Marvel Cassidy, on the website OkCupid.

Apparently, the two made a match after she changed her username from "FunnyThoughtful" to "HogBook" – a unique pairing of words that maybe only those who get Bamford's quirky humor could understand.

'Lady Dynamite'

If you're a fan of Bamford's, you should definitely check out her new show.

The 12-episode series is "based on what Maria has accepted to be 'her life'," IMDB says. It's made up of three timelines, called "Past," "Duluth," and "Present."

The "Duluth" period explores Bamford's experience of moving back in with her parents after she was institutionalized for suicidal depression.

Bamford often addresses mental health issues in her comedy, incorporating her personal struggles with bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive tendencies into her standup. She developed "The Maria Bamford Show" on YouTube after suffering from a nervous breakdown.

The Duluth scenes were actually filmed in the Twin Cities in early November, the Pioneer Press said. Apparently it was too expensive for the series to film in Duluth.
