JUST ANNOUNCED: Tig Notaro will perform at TPAC's James K. Polk Theater in Nashville on July 23, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets on sale Wednesday, March 29, at 10:00 a.m.

Notaro is a standup comedian, storyteller, and writer originally from Mississippi. She writes, produces, and stars in the semiautobiographical comedy series "One Mississippi," premiering this fall through Amazon Studios. Her memoir, "I'm Just A Person," released this year through Harper Collins Publishing, is a New York Times Bestseller.

The Television Academy has acknowledged Notaro with an Emmy nomination for her HBO standup special "Boyish Girl Interrupted." Her Netflix Original documentary, "TIG," premiered to critical acclaim and is available for streaming. You can also see her as Barb on Amazon’s Emmy Awardwinning series "Transparent."

In 2013, Notaro was nominated for a Grammy Award for her standup release, "LIVE," which sold over 100,000 units in just six weeks. "LIVE" is a standup set delivered just days after Notaro was diagnosed with invasive bilateral breast cancer. She has since announced her cancer to be in remission, and remains a favorite on "Conan" and "This American Life."

In her time off, Notaro enjoys bird watching with her wife Stephanie, their twin sons, and cat Fluff, at home in Los Angeles.
