Tig Notaro (Saturday’s headliner) is a groundbreaking stand-up comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director originally from
Mississippi. Hailed for her effortless storytelling and fearless stage presence, her subject matter ranges from the delightfully absurd to the monumentally serious. Rolling Stone recently named Tig “one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time.”
Alex Edelman’s (support for Gary Gulman on Friday) one-hour BBC radio special, Peer Group, was released this year. He won the prestigious Foster’s Best Newcomer prize at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for his one man show, Millennial, only the second American ever to have done so.
Brian Posehn (support for John Hodgman on Saturday) is a comedian/actor/writer that always has a full plate in front of him.
