Watch Tig Notaro on Conan’s After-Hours Stand-up Series

After two appearances on Conan, Tig Notaro returns to After-Hours Stand-Up for an extended performance telling her now infamous tale about 90s pop performer Taylor Dayne. Watch the “brilliant set” above! The New York Times featured Tig earlier this week, saying “what distinguishes her comedy is how forcefully it turns inward, drawing attention to its form, testing its limits… her pleasingly strange concepts are executed with such conviction that they seem to develop an eccentric logic all their own.” Read the article HERE.

Want to help Tig with her new short-film? Head over to her Kickstarter! She’s raising funds to assist in the making of Clown Service, where “a heartbroken woman (Tig Notaro), desperate for a brighter mood, enlists the services of a traveling party clown.” Incentives include everything from a signed sticker from Tig’s podcast Professor Blastoff, to a private stand-up performance by Tig at your house (!!!!!!!!).
