Comic Tig Notaro will publish a collection of humorous, autobiographical essays with Ecco in 2015, the publisher announced Tuesday.
Notaro, who has had her own 30-minute special on Comedy Central, has written for TV, has been heard on "This American Life" and regularly appeared on the full gamut of late-night shows, did a set at Largo in August that brought her special attention.
Scheduled to appear for her monthly show at Largo with Louis CK as a special guest, Notaro first went to a doctor's appointment. There, she was informed that she had stage 2 breast cancer. Rather than try to do her regular routine, she stepped out on stage and began by saying, "Thank you, thank you, I have cancer, thank you, I have cancer, really, thank you."
Louis CK Tweeted, "In 27 years doing this, I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful sets. One was Tig Notaro last night at Largo."
