Record label Secretly Canadian announced today that they’re releasing an expanded CD version of Tig Notaro’s acclaimed Largo performance from last year, during which she discussed her cancer diagnosis and a number of personal tragedies that had befallen her during that year in an emotional, raw, and funny set. The performance achieved acclaim from Notaro’s peers Ed Helms (who called it “One of the most amazing stand-up sets I’ve ever seen”), Bill Burr (“made me feel like I was an open miker. Absolute genius!”), and Louis C.K. (“in 27 years doing this, I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful standup sets. One was Tig Notaro last night at Largo”).
C.K. released Notaro’s set under the name LIVE for $5 via his website last year, but it’s no longer available there. The upcoming CD release is set for July 16th and will feature a bonus disc called “Tig Notaro Live at The Moth,” consisting of a 15-minute story she told at storytelling show The Moth about how her mother’s death redefined her relationship with her stepfather. The story will also be broadcast on The Moth Radio Hour that week for all you cheapskates who don’t want to pay for the new album.
