For our last bit of news: Tig Notaro received lots of love from Lance Armtstrong in his recent interview at Texas Monthly.Titled Lance Armstrong Talks Candidly About Cancer and Comedy, the interview spins off of Tig’s Largo set and the way she shared the news of her breast cancer with the world. It’s a beautiful piece. Read it HERE.
“It’s incredibly brave. It was this weird collision of her being totally candid, and open and honest and an audience that thought they were coming to a comedy show and didn’t know quite what to think or how to react. And pretty far into it, a lot of them still seemed to think it was an act. But, to me, that’s all she was doing – telling her story, detail by detail.” – Lance Armstrong
