Tig Notaro featured at Telluride Comedy Fest

 Sarah Silverman thinks Tig Notaro is the cat’s meow.

“Tig is so funny. She is so comfortable on stage and takes her time like a master. She has the timing of Bob Newhart and the body of a tiny lumberjack. It’s so fun to watch her. She’s funny without even saying a word. She just has that thing and it’s hilarious,” said the actor/writer/comedian.

Sarah is not coming to Telluride. But Tig is. She is part of the illustrious cast taking part in Jeb Berrier’s yuckfest: The 12 annual Telluride Comedy Fest at the Sheridan Opera House, featured Friday, February 18, billed as Sketch Comedy and Improv Night and again on Saturday night, February 19, Stand Up Comedy.

Tig is the great-great-great granddaughter of a man who was once mayor of New Orleans. She was born in Jackson, Mississippi and raised in Pass Christian. She attended high school in Texas, but dropped out and moved to Denver, where she became involved in the music industry. Her work promoting bands got Tig to Los Angeles, where she tried stand-up for the first time and got hooked.
