Overall Rating: Good

Comedian Tig Notaro gets cancer, her mother dies and the relationship she’s in falls apart. That’s just the beginning of Tig’s inspiring, entertaining and endearing story.

The Good

A thoughtful look into Tig Notaro’s life, full of ups and downs and about everything life can throw at a person, all from the perspective of a dead pan comedian. It’s an enjoyable, tear jerker that truly entertains.

The Bad

If you’re only a little, or not at all, familiar with Tig Notaro, you may get something very unexpected with Tig. This isn’t a comedy special. It’s a biography. A fairly sad biography. But well worth the watch just so long as you know what you’re getting yourself into with Tig.

The Ugly

There were some aspects about “Tig” that were glossed over. I was left feeling extremely curious about Tig’s relationship with Stephanie Allynne. They touched upon it but I wanted to know more, particularly about how Stephanie transitioned from hederosexual to homosexual. I want to see her movie now.
