Tig Notaro at the Key West Theater


 

 

Tig Notaro is a comedian, actor and writer originally from Mississippi, who Rolling Stone named one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time. Tig writes, produces and stars in the semiautobiographical Amazon series “One Mississippi.”

Season one yielded several nominations including WGA, GLAAD and The Critic’s Choice Awards. Tig was also nominated for an Emmy as well as a Grammy for her 2016 HBO special “Boyish Girl Interrupted,” a GLAAD Award nomination for the Netflix original documentary “Tig.” Her memoir “I’m Just a Person” is a New York Times bestseller.

In 2013, Tig was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, “Live,” which sold over 100,000 units in just six weeks. “Live” is a stand-up set delivered just days after Tig was diagnosed with invasive bilateral breast cancer, of which she is now in remission.

 

 

Tig remains a favorite on late night talk shows, public radio, tours around the world regularly and most recently sold out Carnegie Hall. In her time off, Tig enjoys bird watching with her wife Stephanie, their twin sons and cat Fluff at home in Los Angeles. ¦
