We just completed binging Tig Notaro prime original show “One Mississippi” and it’s pretty good.
I have been a fan of Tig’s work for a few years now. I think I first saw her on Conan and loved the dry dark humor.
On her approach to comedy (and whether she considers herself a dark comic): “I’m always going to do whatever I think is funniest. If something’s dark, I’ll do it. If it’s a sock puppet, if it’s a stool, I’ll do it. There’s no preconceived idea of who I think I might be now.” Notaro said that since her cancer diagnosis, she has shifted not to darker comedy but rather to personal comedy. Previously she was more distant and observational, but now she reflects on her childhood and her life.
She’s had some huge life struggle like being diagnosed with cancer in both breasts and later had a double mastectomy.
I loved her Netflix special that came out earlier this year. Go check it out.
