Tigging Her Scene

 Comedian Tig Notaro's instant-classic stand-up routine -- in which she reveals she has cancer -- will soon be available for those of us not fortunate enough to have been there night in Los Angeles that night. An online "album" will be sold beginning Oct. 5 via the Web site of Louis C.K., who had this to say about the experience: “In 27 years doing this, I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful sets. One was Tig Notaro last night at Largo." The set will also be the basis for a book of personal essays, to be published by Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins. The tentative release date is 2015, which is hopefully when we will all be celebrating Tig's full recovery from this insidious disease. If you missed Tig in the New York Times Magazine a few Sundays ago, you definitely will want to check it out HERE. But you'd be even better off just watching this:

She is one seriously funny person, you have to be born with timing like that. I wish her well, I know we're not allowed to believe in a diety anymore but I hope and pray she recovers.
