How comic Tig Notaro bounced back from rock bottom

Comedian Tig Notaro on her new tour -- the first since she declared herself cancer-free.

Comedian Tig Notaro joins guest host Brent Bambury to discuss her new tour, Boyish Girl Interrupted, her distinctive brand of absurdist humour and her ever-increasing popularity. 

The comedian, who went public with her breast cancer diagnosis live on stage in 2012, also shares whether audiences still expect her to joke about the subject now that she's cancer-free.
