Gimme a T, Gimme an I, Gimme a G! What’s that spell? TIG!

I have spent much of August enamored with Tig Notaro’s work.  And in my latest post for bitchflicks–click here, I implore you–I make the case for why I think everyone should spend a month* watching the documentary about her rising star Tig and her HBO special “Boyish Girl Interrupted.”

And here’s a bonus clip in which my two favorite people in the media right now–Tig and Amy–come together.  This clip will make more sense after you read the bitchflicks post!

I love when worlds collide.  Which made me so happy when my favorite magazine had one of my favorite entertainers on its cover this month.  Can’t wait to spend some time with this article.  You can buy the issue here.


*It takes me a month to watch an hour-long special and a 1.5-hour-long documentary.  It might only take you a day.  Have a Tig-fest!
