Today is a wonderful day! We’re incredibly happy to announce Tig Notaro will release her new album, LIVE, via Louis C.K.’s website on October 5. It’s the same day Tig will be interviewed by Ira Glass on This American Life. The interview will be accompanied by a 10 minute teaser of her Largo performance, which is the basis of the LIVE album and what Louis C.K. referred to as one of the most masterful performances he’s seen in his 27 working years.
As many of you are probably aware, Tig Notaro was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this summer. She announced the diagnosis at the beginning of her Largo stand-up routine and followed it by taking the audience through the many hardships she encountered during the four months prior to the show. Using a perfect approach of humor and fact, she created an emotional experience, with audience members sharing in tears and laughter the whole way through.
The set went viral after Kira Hesser of The Huffington Post covered the show and walla, Tig then went on to be featured in The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and more. Tig recently went on Conan, where she shared more on the year’s hardships and a prognosis we can all happily get behind. Watch the Conan appearance above.
