Add This to Your List of Things to Watch in 2015: Tig Notaro’s Comedy Special

Everything’s coming up roses for comedian Tig Notaro! First, she announced her engagement to actor Stephanie Allyne:



Then HBO announced it will host a live standup special in the vein of Notaro’s legendary show at the Largo. (The one where she opened, “Thank you, thanks, I have cancer. Thank you, I have cancer. Really, thank you.”) Variety reported that HBO’s president of programming, Michael Lombardo, announced the special Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour. 

“Tig Notaro is a ‘comedian’s comedian’ whose uniquely fearless and always funny voice has won acclaim from critics and fans alike,” Lombardo said. “I’m so happy that we will be able to introduce this remarkable performer to a larger audience.”

It will film later this year, so fingers crossed we get to watch before 2015 is over!
