Comedianne Tig Notaro is Hitting the Road This Fall
The hilarious Tig Notaro has just announced that she’ll be taking her stand-up on the road in what she’s calling her Boyish Girl Interrupted Tour. Notaro will kick things off with a three-night stint at the Just for Laughs Festival from September 23 to 25. After that, it’s a run through New England and into the upper Northeast, eventually playing the Bentzen Ball Festival in Washington, D.C., from October 1 to 4 and heading into the South with shows in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and New Orleans. She’ll play the Paramount Theatre in Austin on October 16, followed by a show in Dallas on Oct 16, and then on to a series of shows throughout the Midwest and a couple stops in the Northeast. Notaro will jet out to Hawaii to play the Maui Comedy Festival from October 29 to November 3, but make it back to the mainland to play the New York comedy festival on November 6 and then onto shows up the East Coast. She’ll then travel across the country, with a quick stop in Denver, to play the Aladdin Theater in Portland on November 12 and a series of shows up and down the West Coast. Notaro will finish up the tour with a show at the Balboa Theatre in San Diego on November 19.
Even though she was a mainstay of the L.A. comedy scene for years, guest staring in various TV comedies (including a bit part on The Sarah Silverman Program) and releasing a standup album in 2011, Tig Notaro has really broken through to mainstream success in the last couple years. She famously gave an impromptu set at Largo in Los Angeles in August of 2012, talking about the then recent death of her mother and her own health problems, including cancer. The recording of the performance, simply titled Live, was championed by fellow comedian Louis C.K. and is now recognized as a legendary piece of standup comedy.
