Maria Bamford wants to do her own version of Melanie Griffith's makeup commercial. (1:22)

MARIA>> WHEN I WAS A KID,

I LIKED TO MIMIC COMMERCIALS

A LOT.

AND THERE'S THIS GREAT

COMMERCIAL OUT RIGHT NOW WHERE

IT'S FOR MAKEUP.

AND IT'S MELANIE GRIFFITH

AND SHE'S GETTING ALL MAD.

SHE'S LIKE, SHE'S LIKE,

"DON'T DENY YOUR AGE, DEFY IT."

(LAUGHTER)

IT'S LIKE, TAKING ON THE BEAUTY

BUSINESS FROM THE INSIDE.

YOU GO 'WORKING GIRL.'

I WANT, I WANT TO DO ONE.

I'D BE LIKE, "MY OLD LIP COLOR

COULD BARELY KEEP UP WITH MY

BUSY SCHEDULE.

OH, AND THE TIME IT TAKES TO

NOTICE THE WIDE DISCREPANCY

BETWEEN MY SALARY AND THAT OF MY

MALE PEERS I WOULD HAVE TO

REAPPLY.

OH, AND THE SECONDS TO COUNT

THE NUMBER OF WOMAN IN HIGH

POLITICAL OFFICES SEATED ON

CORPORATED EXECUTIVE BOARDS AND

FEATURED IN FILM AND TELEVISION

OF THE AGE OF FORTY.

MY LIP COLOR WOULD BE AS

INVISIBLE AS THIS GLASS CEILING

ONLY INCHES ABOVE MY HEAD.

(APPLAUSE)

YEAH.

"HEY, BECAUSE I AM WORTH IT.

AND BECAUSE HOLDING MYSELF TO AN

IMPOSSIBLE STANDARD OF BEAUTY,

KEEPS ME FROM STARTING A RIOT."

I LOVE TV.
