Maria Bamford will appear on Tuesday’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” to promote her recent release “Special Special Special,” the Duluth-raised comedian said on Twitter this week.

The show airs at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.

Bamford released the 45-minute comedy special — which she recorded in her Eagle Rock, Calif., living room in front of an audience of just her parents Joel and Marilyn Bamford — directly on chill.com at the end of November. It was a move that attracted comment from media ranging from Vulture to the New Yorker. (The latter described her as “a comic’s comic, with a stylized, experimental act that lingers in the mind, full of riffs on her struggles with anxiety and depression.”)

In other Bamford Twitter news, she’s recently returned from a hippie vacation in Big Sur, Calif., and now she’s rich in knowledge about 7-Eleven treats that are vegan.
