About Tig Notaro
Tig Notaro is a comedian, actor, and writer originally from Mississippi, whom Rolling Stone named one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time. Tig writes, produces, and stars in the semi-autobiographical Amazon series, One Mississippi. Season 1 yielded several nominations including Writers Guild of America, GLAAD, and The Critic’s Choice Awards. Tig was also nominated for an Emmy and a Grammy for her 2016 HBO special Boyish Girl Interrupted. She also received GLAAD Award nominations for the Netflix Original Documentary Tig, and 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, from which she is now in remission. Tig remains a favorite on late night talk shows and 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.
