Now to another in our Brief But Spectacular series, where we ask interesting people to describe their passions.
Tonight, we hear from comedian Tig Notaro, who has used her performances to overcome enormous personal hurdles, including a cancer diagnoses and the loss of her mother.
Her memoir, “I’m Just a Person,” came out earlier this month.
TIG NOTARO, Comedian: In 2012, I was so busy. I was filming a movie, shooting a TV pilot. Then I started to get sick, and I got diagnosed with pneumonia. A few days later, my mother tripped and hit her head and died.
