by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2014

A comic's comic, Tig Notaro's stage persona is somewhere on the Steven Wright-Todd Barry-Mitch Hedberg continuum. A stand-up comic, writer and radio comedy star, Tig Notaro is coming to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Monday, September 29, at 8 p.m. for an evening of her crowd-pleasing brand of observational comedy.
