It’s another twofer tonight on THE MORTIFIED SESSIONS. Tune in first for one of the more daring stand-up comics around, Tig Notaro. In addition to her live shows, she’s also been featured on The Sarah Silverman Program and Comedy Central Presents and is one of the few comics brave enough to have written a comedy monologue about cancer (based on her own experience). Tig’s followed by the dashing young actor Jason Ritter, whose recurring role on NBC’s Parenthood has earned him an Emmy nomination. Watch both of them open up about the awkward moments that made them who they are today.
Tig Notaro’s genius has always rested in her innate sense of humor and impeccable comedic timing. She calls out the absurdity of any situation with a Southerner’s warmth and courtesy. None of that uptight, anxious, Northern-neurotic yelling here. She keeps her cool so well, Tig may have changed the way people in our culture deal with the Big C. Check out these ten reasons why you should be diggin her scene.
