Comedian Tig Notaro is Finally on Twitter, Sort Of!
Comedian Tig Notaro isn’t really into Twitter, so she’s having a bunch of her famously funny friends handle it for her.
Her brand-new Twitter account appeared today with the disclaimer, “I have no interest in Twitter. I can barely check my email. But I love you.” All tweets will be written by Tig’s friends, and today Sarah Silverman is up.
Notaro and her wry, personal sense of humor went viral after an August 2012 standup performance that took place days after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then she’s been the subject of documentaries on Netflix and Showtime and is well-known in comedy circles.
Now her new HBO special “Tig Notaro Boyish Girl Interrupted” is premiering Saturday, August 22 – and the teaser shows that she has some pretty hilarious friends, including Jack Black, Cheryl Hines, Margaret Cho, Reggie Watts and Kristen Schaal. Hopefully a bunch of them will be taking over her Twitter account later on.
