    Last August, Tig Notaro began her stand-up comedy set with this line: “Good evening! Hello. I have cancer! How are you?” What came next “was one of the greatest standup performances I ever saw,” wrote Louis C. K., who then posted the set on his website and brought immediate fame to comedy’s now it-girl. Notaro turned a string of horrors – cancer, double mastectomy, death of her mother, bad break-up – into a gut-wrenching but still very funny comedy routine. It’s now being released on a cd, Live, for the first time this summer.
