I got to spend Saturday afternoon with my friend, Rob. Fun, as always. (of course) Over dinner, he mentioned a comedian, Tig Notaro. I’d never heard of her before that, but three hours later, an online friend mentioned her, too, and I figured that obviously, I had to check her out.
So glad I did.
She’s hilarious. And she’s a cancer survivor. And she jokes about cancer. I love it!
I’ve now watched a number of YouTube videos, as well as the Netflix documentary, Tig, and I find her incredibly inspiring. She’s done in stand up what I’d only dream of being able to do with this blog – touch lots of people, and make jokes about cancer to them!
Ok, so she actually makes good jokes and gets paid for it, while I make jokes to help me get through those uncomfortable times. Anyhow, I hope you’ll enjoy this bit from the Conan O’Brien show.
