Her acclaimed album Live is a deeply personal set performed just four days after Notaro was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer. Live was nominated in 2014 for the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.
Subsequently, in her HBO comedy special Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted she took off her shirt to reveal her masectomy scars while continuing to talk about airplane travel.
It’s beyond being a woman, or cancer survivor, or someone with a double mastectomy, no nipples, whatever it is — it’s just a human being and the human body.
Healthy, sick, boobs, no boobs, cancer or no cancer. This is just life and this is my body, relax.
