Comedienne Tig Notaro has risen to the top thanks to an unabashed, honest commentary about life and love through laughter. Her 2012 set at Largo in Los Angeles, in which she spoke openly about her breast cancer diagnosis, mother’s death, and the end of a long-term relationship was nominated for a Grammy and touted by Louis CK as one of the “truly great, masterful standup sets.” Notaro is getting lots of screen time, but her favorite place is still on a stage with a microphone.

Monday 10/6. $25-28, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St. Downtown Mall. 245-4980.

Can we talk? Making the most of your TEDx experience



Our comments system is designed to foster a lively debate of ideas, offer a forum for the exchange of ad hoc information, and solicit honest, respectful feedback about the work we do. We’re glad you’re participating. Here are a few simple rules to follow, which should be relatively straightforward.

1) Don’t call people names or accuse them of things you cannot support.
2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion. We’re trying to create a safe space for a wide range of people to express themselves, and we believe that goal can only be achieved through thoughtful, sensitive editorial control.

If you have questions or comments about our policies or about a specific post, please send an e-mail to editor@c-ville.com.
