Funny Bitch Friday: Tig Notaro

02/08/2013 · 11 comments

in Funny Bitch Friday

Sometimes there are female comedians: Anjela Johnson, Lisa Lampanelli, Whitney Cummings.

And then sometimes there are female goddamn comedians: Tina Fey, Lucille Balls, Carol Burnett, and Tig Notaro. You might have seen her on every late night show ever, her Professor Blastoff podcast, or my wet dreams.

She’s unbelievable. She’s refreshing and creative and different and she never fails to have me rolling. Her new(est) special, Live (only 5 fucking dollars), takes it to a whole new level. Let me show you why that $5 is so worth it.

This is the second time I’ve seen Tig blogged about in the last couple weeks. Jules of Go Jules Go (not sure if you know about her) did an entire post about her Live show, and about how powerful and raw and poignant it was. I never broke down and paid the $5 to get it, but I’m thinking I now have to. I saw Tig when she was first on Last Comic Standing (yes, the hubs and I ARE the only 2 people in America that still watched that show!). She is hysterical.

Tig Notaro is so funny. I’d only heard her Taylor Dane bit before.

Sigh. My office disabled videos. Probably because of Funny Bitch Fridays. And possibly because of my lack of Friday afternoon productivity.

So a few years back I was watching Comedy Central with my brother and we saw Tig Notaro’s stand- up special, long story short we laughed our asses off and even today occasionally turn to one another and very seriously say, “I have boobs, they’re just concave.” We could never find her again though…


You would not believe how happy (and totally silver) I am right now! Cannot wait to see my brother to show him this

She was never invited on Letterman or Leno or Ellen. Not even Kimmel. Her bad reputation as a liar and thief overcame her stories of cancer. She claims to be cured now. She’s one sick lady but only in the head. Very few people tolerate old lesbians with annoying nicknames and reputations as liars and thieves.
