Long a favorite on Conan and This American Life, Tig Notaro's fame skyrocketed last year after she went onstage in Los Angeles and did an astounding set about her week-old diagnosis of cancer; after the recorded set was posted for download on Louis C.K.'s website, it sold 100,000 copies in six weeks. (It's now available to buy at iTunes and elsewhere.) Notaro hits the UP Comedy Club for a last-minute, one-night-only appearance that's reportedly being taped for possible broadcast. She's joined by Jon Dore, Adam Burke and Ever Mainard.
