Annointed by industry giant Louis CK as one of the best standups in the business, Tig Notaro absolutely knows funny. Having honed her comedic voice on the road for over a decade, Notaro has amassed a wealth of stories and experiences that translate perfectly on the page.
Her newly published memoir, I’m Just A Person, though, is so much more than just a funny book. In fact, what sets the story in motion is as far from comedic as you can imagine…
In 2012 Notaro learns that she has cancer, which is then followed swiftly by the news that her mother has died. While this might not sound like a light read, Notaro never fails to lift the spirits with her inimitable absurd and deadpan style.
If you like your comedy a little dark, a little dry, and very silly, then you are in luck! Away from the stage and the television camera (for a fine actor she is, too) Tig Notaro is one talented and compelling author. Chris Prindiville
