"Good evening. Hello. I have cancer," comedian Tig Notaro famously announced in front of a stunned audience in 2012. "Is everybody having a good time?" In just 30 minutes, the beloved, up-and-coming stand-up star revealed her grave prognosis to the world, with a disarming mixture of humor and vulnerability. The set became a media sensation and critical smash overnight and, as Kristina Goolsby and Ashley York's charming and kind-hearted documentary reveals, helped push Notaro past a series of setbacks and into the limelight. Known for her deadpan humor and striking honesty, Notaro took her struggles and transformed them into an ongoing, gut-busting punch line, cracking people up both on- and off-stage. With her newfound stardom also came a budding romance with actress Stephanie Allynne, whose steadfast support and adorably flirty texts helped shaped Notaro's resurgence.The result is an alternately hilarious and poignant window into a comedian's process, turning her worst fears and anxieties into pure comedic gold. This Sundance sensation - a recipient of an extended standing ovation following its world premiere - features Sarah Silverman and Zach Galifianakis, and showcases how Louis C.K. ensured that Tig's now-famous "cancer comedy" was heard by millions of appreciative listeners across the globe.
