Tig Notaro - Pig Tit

Season 4 , Ep 0411 02/03/01 Views: 6,009

Tig Notaro rolls with the punches whenever people mis-hear her name. (1:53)

AND AFTER THAT RUN I'M SPENT.

(LAUGHTER)

SO MY NAME IS TIG.

IT'S NOT REAL COMMON.

PEOPLE ALWAYS HAVE TROUBLE WITH

IT.

ESPECIALLY OVER THE PHONE.

I WAS ON THIS CALL WITH THIS

GUY, AND WE WERE GOING TO HANG

UP, AND HE'S LIKE "ALL RIGHT,

WELL, LOOK,I DON'T FEEL REAL

COMFORTABLE CALLING YOU THIS,

BUT I GUESS I'LL SEE YA TONIGHT,

PIG."

(LAUGHTER)

AND I WAS LIKE, "WELL, YOU KNOW,

TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I DON'T

FEEL REAL COMFORTABLE WITH YOU

CALLING ME 'PIG' EITHER."

(LAUGHTER)

I SAID, "'CAUSE MY NAME'S

ACTUALLY 'TIG.'"

AND HE SAID, "YEAH, THAT'S WHAT

I SAID, 'PIG.'"

(LAUGHTER)

I SAID, "NO, IT'S 'TIG'

WITH A 'T.'"

AND HE SAID, "OH, I'M SORRY.

'TIT.'"

(LAUGHTER)

SO EVENTUALLY I WAS JUST LIKE,

"YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.

IT'S 'PIG-TIT.'"

(LAUGHTER)

I WENT ON A HARD-CORE DRINKING

AND SMOKING BINGE.

(APPLAUSE AND CHEERING)

IT LASTED RIGHT ABOUT NINE

MONTHS.

AND THEN AS SOON AS I WAS BORN--

(LAUGHTER)

I WAS LIKE, "WHOO!

DO NOT GO IN THERE!"

(LAUGHTER)

NO, BUT MY MOTHER'S SOBER NOW.

OR AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT I THINK

SHE WAS SAYING.

AFTER I MOVED OUT OF THE HOUSE

I USED TO COME HOME TO VISIT,

AND WE'D SIT UP 'TIL ALL HOURS

OF THE NIGHT TALKING, AND SHE'D

BE HAVING A COCKTAIL, AND SHE'D

SAY, "TIG, TELL ME SOME MORE

STORIES ABOUT WHAT YOU WERE LIKE

AS A CHILD."

(LAUGHTER)
