You’re at a party when your buddy meets “Someone.” This “Someone” has a friend, and since your buddy already called dibs, you’re forced to play wingman with the friend. Yet surprisingly, this wingman dilemma is atypical of most wingman dilemmas. The friend is seemingly a good catch: skinny, nice smile, and though she wears a boyish haircut, you find it kind of cute because it resembles Tegan Quin (you secretly love the song “Back In Your Head”).
To all those people who think female comedians can’t be funny, you’ve obviously never seen Tig Notaro do stand-up. The petite, tomboyish Notaro has been steadily climbing up the ranks in the comedy world, pulling in crowds at her live shows, and appearing on Comedy Central and Sarah Silverman. Now, the dry comedian has come out with her first album, the aptly titled Good One.
