Tig Notaro is a groundbreaking stand-up comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director originally from Mississippi.

Rolling Stone recently named Tig “one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time.”   

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.
  
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. In 2019, Tig also appeared opposite Oscar Award winner Octavia Spencer in the Paramount Pictures comedy Instant Family.
