Editorial Reviews

Secretly Canadian is proud to release the debut album by Tig Notaro entitled Good One. She is the first and only comedian we've had the good fortune to work with. Good One contains well crafted and silly material touching on subjects such as her family tree, Mexican hotel door signs, birthing a dinosaur, and how Taylor Dayne is the easiest person in the world to run into, amongst other things. This deluxe version of the album contains the long anticipated DVD of Have Tig At Your Party, the human equivalent to the "burning log" DVDs.

and it was a GREAT one! the only drawback is when she is doing something physical and you can hear it's hilarious, but you just have to imagine what it is she's doing. if you've never heard Tig, then you're in for a treat. I'd rate this a solid PG, because she doesn't curse, doesn't talk about awfully gross or crass things, but about real life (or so it seems). BUY IT. BUY IT. BUY IT.

I'm a big fan of Tig from her various appearances on the Comedy Death Ray/ Comedy Bang Bang Podcast, and her own Podcast, Professor Blastoff. Her dry yet quick witted sense of humor shines through in her act, and her stories are hilarious but not over the top. It should also be noted that there is no cursing at all on this album - not that it really matters to me, I have a foul mouth sometimes, but I give extra praise to comedians who are still hilarious without relying on bad language.
My only gripes with this album is that it's a little short, and I had already heard bits and pieces of some of the jokes from following Tig, but that's fairly typical with comedy.

GOOD ONE TIG.

Much like Todd Barry, Tig Notaro has a very dry, laid-back, almost emotionless delivery to her comedy. She tells jokes the way someone might mutter a complaint about the length of the line at a deli. This isn't bad, per se, but when a comedienne decides to go neutral with their delivery, it means the funny either has to come from the contrast between the deadpan delivery and the nature of the material, or the jokes themselves have to be very good indeed (see Steven Wright).

The jokes here? Meh.

The first fifteen minutes of the album are a rapid series of throwaway observations. They're cute and clever, but not really laugh-worthy. The kind of comments that, if your friends said them, would have you nod and smile and say, "Yeah, that's funny," rather than actually guffaw out loud. (Can You Believe It? and No Moleste are the best of the bunch.) This is followed by a 12 minute story about Taylor Dayne that is amusing but, again, not in the way that will get you to muster any more energy to laugh at it than Tig uses to tell it.

The best section in the album is a twelve minute interlude where Tig interacts with the audience on self defense classes and the nature of shark attacks. You can really see her comedic muscle in this part, not the least because you can actually hear her amusing herself and pulling out past her standard monotone delivery. The last six minutes are some cheesy impression jokes as well as a repetitive ending that culminates in people singing happy birthday to her three or four times in a row.

She's got a very companionable and warm delivery, but the substance just isn't there to sustain it over a single, let alone multiple, listens.

Tig Notaro has been around for at least ten years, originally touring the nightclub circuit using her first name only. More recently, Ms. Notaro has become a frequent guest on the late-night circuit, particularly Conan O'Brien and has a largely clean act with material that falls somewhere between the observational humor of Seinfeld and the deadpan delivery of Stephen Wright, without necessarily owing to either of those two comedians. If you are a Gen X slacker who likes absurd wit served with a veneer of hipster dry, then this would be right up your alley.

Notaro's best-known bit, the "Taylor Dayne" monologue, a 12-minute piece about her frequent run-ins with a once-famous pop singer from the 80s, is on this album. That piece alone makes it worth purchasing. Still hilarious the fifth time around, calling out those who don't understand the statute of limitations of fifteen minutes. Most of the other bits are shorter, sometimes nonsensical pieces about showering babies and friends who crowd your personal space with useless banter and/or information. My personal favorite is the album's 12th track "Self Defense/Shark Attack", where she gets into a discussion with a couple of audience members about Tae Kwon Do.

The CD is bundled with a bonus DVD, "Have Tig At Your Party" an Andy Kaufmanesque sendup of informercials that will make you appreciate social satire's nth degree, or simply annoy the hell out of you, depending on your opinion of Sarah Silverman (who makes a guest appearance on the DVD). The DVD has two parts, the first being a 30-minute parody of informercials, and the second half is literally 58 minutes of Tig standing in front of a green screen, assuming the persona of a cocktail party wallflower. It's weirdly funny, and sometimes just for laughs my wife and I will put the second half on while we clean the house or have friends over for poker.

Good luck on beating cancer, Ms. Notaro! This fan is rooting for a smooth recovery for you...

I love this album. When it comes to Tig it seems people either love her or don't get why everyone else likes and are left confused. I get that. The incredibly dry almost monotone delivery she has isn't for everyone but I certainly love it and this album was great. Personally I think it's worth owning just for the Taylor Dayne story. It is so funny I was in pain near the end. That track along is worth the entire purchase price.

But don't think that is the only reason to pick it up. The entire album is hilarious and that story is just the main course so to speak. Like I said Tig may not be for everybody but you have to at least give her a shot and you might love what you hear.
