Cancer Support Community North Texas will present Emmy-nominated comedian and cancer survivor, Tig Notaro, to headline Comedy Kicks Cancer. Notaro was named one of the 50 best stand-up comedians of all time by Rolling Stone and stars opposite Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer in the upcoming movie, Instant Family.

In 2013, Notaro was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, Live, which sold over 100,000 units in just six weeks. Live is a stand-up set delivered just days after she was diagnosed with invasive bilateral breast cancer, of which she is now in remission.

Notaro completed a critically acclaimed semi-autobiographical Amazon series, One Mississippi, which she wrote, produced and starred in. The series yielded several nominations including - WGA, GLAAD and The Critic’s Choice Awards.  She was also nominated for an Emmy as well as a Grammy for her 2016 HBO special Boyish Girl Interrupted, a GLAAD Award nomination for the Netflix Original Documentary, Tig, and her memoir, I’m Just a Person, is a New York Times Bestseller.

All proceeds from the event will benefit CSCNT.
