Stand-up Comic, Tig Nataro

Hanaway Theater,

Tig Notaro is busier than she’s ever been doing stand-up, appearing frequently on Conan, recording her popular podcast Professor Blastoff and appearing in movies like In a World, Shreveport, and Walk of Shame. Many people know her from her hilarious story about a series of run-ins with ’80s pop star Taylor Dayne featured on This American Life. Then, in 2012, Notaro endured a series of back-to-back health crises and personal tragedies that would put most careers on indefinite hold. Instead, she took to the stage. A tweet from Louis C.K. the next day read: “I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful standup sets. One was Tig Notaro….”  The set was recorded and became the best-selling comedy album of the year and nominated for a Grammy.  Look for her upcoming Showtime special Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro, in which she’ll perform comedy in peoples’ basements, backyards, and barns. Purchase tickets through the Silver Center Box Office by phone at (603) 535-2787, toll free at (800) 779-3869, or online at silver.plymouth.edu.
