Tig Notaro Lands Deal for Autobiographical Essay Book

Comedian Tig Notaro has inked a book deal with HarperCollins’ Ecco imprint for a collection of funny autobiographical essays.

Above, we’ve embedded video of Notaro performing her “No Moleste” routine, a dry twist on a simple hotel sign in Mexico. Marc Gerald from The Agency Group negotiated the deal with executive editor Hilary Redmon. She has performed on on Conan, This American Life, Community and The Sarah Silverman Program.

Here’s more from the release: “In her debut collection, Tig writes about her early years in Mississippi and Texas; her first decade in Los Angeles; and this tumultuous past year, in which, among other things, her mother died and she was diagnosed with breast cancer: a diagnosis which she worked into a now legendary stand-up routine.”
