Tig Notaro is a groundbreaking stand-up comedian, actor, writer, producer and director. Hailed for her effortless storytelling and fearless stage presence, her subject matter ranges from the delightfully absurd to the monumentally serious. Rolling Stone recently named Tig “one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time.”
This year, Tig and her wife/writing partner Stephanie Allynne sold the screenplay First Ladies to Netflix with Jennifer Aniston attached to star as the first female President of the United States, and Tig starring as the First Lady. Tig also appeared opposite Oscar Award winner Octavia Spencer in the Paramount Pictures comedy Instant Family.
For two seasons, Tig wrote, produced and starred in the critically acclaimed semi-autobiographical Amazon series One Mississippi, which she co-created with Oscar Award winner Diablo Cody. The series yielded several award nominations, including WGA, GLAAD and The Critic’s Choice Awards. In 2013, Tig was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, Live, the number one selling comedy album of 2012. Tig was also nominated for both an Emmy Award and a Grammy Award for her 2015 HBO special Boyish Girl Interrupted. She received a GLAAD Award nomination for the Netflix Original Documentary Tig. Her memoir, I’m Just a Person, is a New York Times Bestseller.
Tig is a favorite on numerous talk shows, including Ellen, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Conan. She is also a frequent public radio contributor. In her time off, Tig enjoys bird-watching with Stephanie, their twin sons, and cat, Fluff, at home in Los Angeles.
“…weird and silly, with a joyful light-heartedness. It’s all about having fun...” —The Guardian
“Instead of relying on risk to generate tension, Notaro does something different: she spins out stories that in the care of another teller might risk dullness, landing on deadpan punchlines and luring the audience into a reaction.”—The Washington Post
