Comedian Tig Notaro on making cancer funny

Listen

Back in August, stand-up comic Tig Notaro made international headlines with her heart-wrenching and hilarious set on the not-so-funny subject of cancer, the death of her mother and a slew of other accumulated tragedies she experienced this year.

A recording of the set was released in October. That same month, Tig Notaro joined Jian to talk about her legendary performance and the role of tragedy in comedy.
