Looking to Book Tig Notaro?
Tig (affectionately named by her brother as a child) was born in Jackson, MS, and raised by her single mother in Pass Christian, MS. She decided to drop out of school in 9th grade and move to Denver, CO., where she worked briefly in the music industry before moving to LA to lodge herself firmly into the world of comedy. Tig has appeared in a number of television shows and most notably as “Officer Tig” in The Sarah Silverman Program. Some of Tig’s writing credits include The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards and The 2010 MTV Movie Awards. In 2013, she made her feature film debut in In A World and can be seen in upcoming releases Shreveport with Ryan Phillippe and Walk of Shame with Elizabeth Banks.
Over the years, Tig has also worked on various short films funded by director Sam Raimi and started the highly unknown and unsuccessful, “ZeroDollarsAndZeroSenseProductions” with her producing partner and childhood friend, Beth Schorr. Tig currently resides in Venice Beach, CA, on the same street as Julia Roberts, but in a much smaller house.
Her acclaimed album Live was nominated in 2014 for the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. The special Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted was nominated in 2016 at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special. In 2017, the album Boyish Girl Interrupted was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.
