Okay... so I've never been a fan of stand-up comedy. At one time I did enjoy a good laugh yet sadly most stand-up comedy spend more time doing jokes based on the standard "lets use more obscene, or rude words". The stand-up comedy world has just been sadden to spend anytime supporting, until I saw Tig Notaro. Tig 2015 is a documentary on a TRUE comedian, a beautiful human being that put herself on the stage for her fans versus trying to be just like every other stand-up. Having watched this film it also gave me a new reason to want to see more stand-up in hopes that some of <more>
the comedians out there can actually be funny without foul obscene shenanigans.The movie Tig 2015 is a beautiful movie, it's sad, it's laughter, it's just perfect. The saddening part of this is most people wouldn't know who Tig Notaro is until they see this movie.
Funny, touching doc about an empathetic person (by shaughne1)
I love Tig. The movie captures an incredible person doing her goddamn best. I literally cried, and I came out of it a little more hopeful, at least right now. I didn't even notice if the movie was well made or making some big point or anything, I just know that it got across an incredible human struggle and an incredible human. The movie was consistently sad, consistently funny, and in depth into someone's life in a fairly unique way. No matter how you slice it, a lot of objectively interesting stuff, great and horrible, happened to Tig in a pretty short time-span, and this movie <more>
shows us how it happened. This movie probably won't change your life, but it definitely turned my day around.
