One Mississippi is a series released on Prime Video, created by and starring Tig Notaro. It's a semi-fictionalized account of her life dealing with breast cancer, bilateral mastectomy, losing her mother in a freak accident, dealing with her widowed stepfather, and getting dumped by her girlfriend.

Naturally, it also manages to be darkly comedic like the woman herself.


This show provides examples of:

  • Big Eater: Remy, Tig's older brother.

  • Black Comedy: Despite the ridiculous confluence of misfortune, Tig's dry wit manages to extract quite a bit of humor.
  • Broken Bird: Tig was molested as a child. To a lesser degree, her brother and father.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Tig might as well be the header image for this trope. Everything she does is deadpan, really.
  • Memento Macguffin: Explored in one episode with Bill, and the glassware from his wedding.
  • Mood Whiplash: And how. Visions of her dead mother are quickly followed by comic reactions to her stepfather's deeply entrenched routines.
