Tig Notaro

MASS MoCA has a two-day comedy event -- The High Mud Comedy Fest -- lined up for March 11 and 12. The headliner is comedian Tig Notaro. Festival tickets are on sale now -- they're $42 ahead / $55 day of / $32 students.

Notaro is a standup comic and writer who's appeared a bunch of places, including Comedy Central and This American Life. In recent years, she's been recognized for a set in which she announced she had breast cancer -- Louis C.K. called it one of the "truly great, masterful standup sets." And she has a new semi-autobiographical TV series -- One Mississippi -- coming out on Amazon Prime later this year.

The festival lineup also includes Ophira Eisenberg as host (she's a comedian and host of NPR's Ask Me Another), Sean Patton, Dave Hill, Thomas Attila Lewis, Seth Brown, and Mark Jagiello. There will be stand-up comedy in the evenings, and screenings of comedy films and shorts in the afternoon.
