“Rare is the piece of art (and even rarer the comedy album) that covers this much emotional ground, getting to the point that its sometimes unclear whether the tears are due to laughing so hard or just from the seemingly hopeless pain of it all. Besides being joyously engaging, Notaro’s resounding strength makes this album something that lifts the soul of the listener as much as it entertains.” – TIME

For our last bit of news: Tig Notaro received lots of love from Lance Armtstrong in his recent interview at Texas Monthly.Titled Lance Armstrong Talks Candidly About Cancer and Comedy, the interview spins off of Tig’s Largo set and the way she shared the news of her breast cancer with the world. It’s a beautiful piece. Read it HERE.
“It’s incredibly brave. It was this weird collision of her being totally candid, and open and honest and an audience that thought they were coming to a comedy show and didn’t know quite what to think or how to react. And pretty far into it, a lot of them still seemed to think it was an act. But, to me, that’s all she was doing – telling her story, detail by detail.” – Lance Armstrong

As many of you are probably aware, Tig Notaro was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this summer. She announced the diagnosis at the beginning of her Largo stand-up routine and followed it by taking the audience through the many hardships she encountered during the four months prior to the show. Using a perfect approach of humor and fact, she created an emotional experience, with audience members sharing in tears and laughter the whole way through.
The set went viral after Kira Hesser of The Huffington Post covered the show and walla, Tig then went on to be featured in The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and more. Tig recently went on Conan, where she shared more on the year’s hardships and a prognosis we can all happily get behind. Watch the Conan appearance above.
