Tig Notaro Quotes
Not many people have had as much bad luck as I have, but not many people have had as much good luck, either.
I didn't like to stop playing for a second to bother with eating or going to the bathroom. I was a really skinny kid, and I remember my mother always telling people, 'I don't know how she's alive. I think she gets all of her nutrients from air pollution.'
Reminding myself that I have a tailbone keeps me in check.
Basically I'm a female human being with brown hair, enjoy precision, reading the news, eating delicious food with my delicious friends and laughing at ridiculous things that don't translate while you are desperately trying to make them.
It was a free-for-all with music when I was growing up. My mother was a huge music fanatic so I was listening to everything from country to heavy metal to Indigo Girls to Elton John. I guess when I was really young I didn't like Willie Nelson, and she obviously loved him. Now I do too, I'm so thankful to her for playing his music nonstop.
My career has always kind of moved forward and upward. I've never had anything kind of stall out or go in the opposite direction. I've always kind of been moving in the right direction.
It's almost embarrassing how much support I have. I mean, I always tell people I feel like I'm perfectly set up to have cancer. I have great health insurance, I have a savings account. I have work lined up. I have friends and family. I have the best doctors I can get.
I love devastating movies, documentaries and hummingbirds (yes, in that order).
One of my favorite songs is 'Ghost' by Indigo Girls. Emily Saliers wrote that, and she is one of the most talented songwriters ever.
As a kid, I loved Paula Poundstone and Richard Pryor. But my mother was a huge influence on my comedy.
Comedy was a secret want, but it wasn't anything I pursued.
I'm always going to do whatever I think is funniest. If something's dark, I'll do it.
I'm fascinated by caddy Buddhists popping up all over Hollywood and people that take themselves too seriously.
I'm not a religious person; I'm not even, like, a spiritual person.
