Tig Notaro is a comedian, actor and writer originally from Mississippi, who Rolling Stone named one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time. Tig writes, produces and stars in the semi-autobiographical Amazon series, One Mississippi. Season 1 yielded several nominations including - WGA, GLAAD and The Critic’s Choice Awards. Tig was also nominated for an Emmy as well as a Grammy for her 2016 HBO special Boyish Girl Interrupted, a GLAAD Award nomination for the Netflix Original Documentary Tig, and her memoir I’m Just a Person is a New York Times Bestseller.
In 2013, Tig was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, Live, which sold over 100,000 units in just six weeks.

In her time off, Tig enjoys bird watching with her wife Stephanie, their twin sons and cat Fluff, at home in Los Angeles.
A fan of stand-up comedy dating back to when he would laugh at Laffy Taffy wrappers, Tabari’s sense of humor reflects a wide assortment of influences, speaking on everything from every day annoyances to pop culture, sports and his own personal experiences. Tabari's conversational, every man style has led him to open for a wide range of today's stars, including but not limited to Mike Birbiglia, Tom Segura, Tony Rock, Charlie Murphy, Fortune Feimster, Ryan Stout and Tommy Johnagin among others.
Tabari has also been honored to perform at several prestigious events, such as the illustrious San Francisco Sketch Fest, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival/ and the inaugural Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, IN. In addition to being featured on “Rooftop Comedy’s Road Trip” on the MavTV Network and Hulu.com, Tabari also starred alongside his mom in an episode of HGTV’s popular series Property Virgins buying his first home … Hence the reason he would really appreciate you supporting his career.
Now with his debut album – Laughing with a Panther (Rooftop Comedy) – in stores and his national TV debut on Fox's "Laughs" program under his belt, Tabari’s future on stage is looking bigger and brighter ... At least that's what he keeps telling himself and the financial institutions to whom he owes money.
But no matter what he says, he does it with one simple goal in mind: Making people laugh – and hoping he doesn’t anger his family or God in the process.
