Louis CK Promotes Tig Notaro


I got this super depressing e-mail from Louis CK.

Here’s an excerpt:

 Tig is a friend of mine and she is very funny.  I love her voice on stage.  One night I was performing at a club in LA called Largo.  Tig was there.  She was about to go on stage.  I hadn’t seen Tig in about a year and I said how are you?  She replied “well I found out today that I have cancer in both breasts and that it has likely spread to my lymph nodes.  My doctor says it looks real bad. “. She wasn’t kidding.  I said “uh.  Jesus.  Tig.    Well.  Do you… Have your family… Helping?”.  She said “well my mom was with me but a few weeks ago she fell down, hit her head and she died”.  She still wasn’t kidding…

A few days later, I wrote Tig and asked her if I could release this set on my site.  I wanted people to hear what I saw.  What we all saw that night.  She agreed.  The show is on sale for the same 5 dollars I charge for my stuff.  I’m only keeping 1.  She gets the other 4.  Tig has decided to give some of that to cancer research.

Buy the audio set for $5 here:

I never heard of her before but she actually is really funny. And you can fight cancer at the same time.

    She is great. I saw a few of her shows while in LA. She’s located in NYC now though so if you ever see her doing a set somewhere definitely go see her. One of the best. Always hilarious on podcasts too.

    Yes, she is great. I just heard her Taylor Dayne story on This American Life this morning.
