Tig Notaro is a groundbreaking stand-up comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director originally from Mississippi. 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, Notaro 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 Notaro starring as the First Lady. This year Notaro also appeared opposite Oscar Award winner Octavia Spencer in the Paramount Pictures comedy Instant Family.
For two seasons, Notaro 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, Notaro was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, Live, the No.1 selling comedy album of 2012. Notaro 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.
