Comedian Tig Notaro has always been very open onstage about her battle with cancer. VERY OPEN. In her upcoming HBO Special Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted, Tig performs topless, revealing not only the scars left by her double mastectomy, but more importantly what it actually looks like to claim victory over the fucktwat that is cancer.
In this clip from Conan, Tig talks about getting heckled by her own brain and the absolute liberation that comes from exposing completely yourself onstage. As she put it, “everyone should see this.”
Here Tig talks to Conan about how her hesitancy to join Twitter is mostly because of joke thieves. Tiny, underage joke thieves.
