Wrap up PLA Conference in a big way with Tig Notaro!
Most recently, Amazon ordered a semiautobiographical comedy pilot for Tig to star in, co-write/create, and executive produce. Tig is teaming up with Diablo Cody, who is set to co-write, along with Louis CK, who is executive producing and directing. Tig’s stand-up special, Boyish Girl Interrupted, premiered on HBO in August 2015. A documentary feature was made about the comedian following a series of devastating life events, entitled Tig. The film opened to a standing ovation at Sundance in 2015 and premiered globally as a Netflix Original documentary that July. Tig is returning for the second season of the critically acclaimed series Transparent on Amazon this fall. In 2016, Harper Collins will be releasing Tig’s memoir.
In 2014, Tig was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, LIVE, which sold over 100,000 units in just six weeks. This album is a stand-up set delivered just days after she was diagnosed with stage 2 bilateral breast cancer. Tig has since announced her cancer to be in remission. Tig remains a favorite on Conan and This American Life, tours internationally, and enjoys bird watching with her partner at their home in Los Angeles.
PLA thanks HarperCollins for its support of this event.
