Tig Notaro is getting into the comedy record business. Independent record label Secretly Canadian has teamed up with Notaro to launch her own standup comedy record imprint called Bentzen Ball Records. And in case you’re wondering why Notaro chose that name, here’s what she told Billboard: “It’s named after a guy named Ole Bentzen who apparently died of a heart attack from laughter while watching A Fish Called Wanda. It’s kind of a good way to go, to laugh at stuff.” Notaro will kick things off by releasing Aparna Nancherla’s debut comedy record Just Putting It Out There on Friday, July 8th. Check out a teaser from the record below:
