Mathilde "Tig" Notaro (born March 24, 1971 in Jackson, Mississippi) is a stand-up comedian who is best known for being thrust into comedy legend in 2012 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She elected to continue with a show she had booked at the Largo a few weeks later, making it all about her illness and stunning the crowd with her frankness about such a horrific subject and ability to find humor in it. She later had a double mastectomy and was declared cancer-free, and has continued her career with a healthy addition of BlackComedy, though she still maintains her fair share of lighter jokes. She was also the subject of the Netflix documentary ''Tig'', which covered both her battle and her struggle to figure out what to do with her career after she beat the disease. She currently stars in the Netflix comedy series ''Series/OneMississippi'', which she co-created with Creator/DiabloCody.
