Back when she was working as a music promoter in Denver, few probably would have believed that Tig Notaro -- who had at that point never even performed on a stage, let alone comedy -- would go on to the phenomenal amount of success she's since achieved: Besides numerous high-profile stand-up gigs including appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Kimmel Live, she's also been a fixture on shows like Community and the Sarah Silverman Program, and currently has her own show in the works. But first, a comedy album. It's called Good One, and it doesn't get released until August 2 -- but because Show and Tell pulls a shitload of clout, we've got one track from it right here.
Actually, we don't really have a shitload of clout. The widget above is a promotional ploy that requires you to sign up for email updates from Tig Notaro to get the download, but whatever, it's still pretty worth it. For one thing, Notaro is awesome, so we don't really mind getting email updates from her. For another, this clip is funny as hell.
