If you haven't heard of Tig Notaro before, well, for one thing, you obviously haven't been hanging on our every word. Get on that, won't you?

Tig Notaro's debut album, "Good One," is slated for release on August 2nd by Secretly Canadian. This will be Secretly Canadian's first comedy release. According to their release, "'Good One's' well-crafted and ridiculous material touches on subjects such as Tig's family tree, Mexican hotel door signs, birthing a dinosaur, and how '90s pop singer Taylor Dayne is the easiest person in the world to run into." A deluxe version of the album will contain the long-anticipated DVD of "Have Tig At Your Party", the human equivalent to the “burning log” DVDs. ed. note: I'm a fan of the "puppies in front of a fireplace" station-holders, myself. For those of you who love free things, keep reading (or scroll all the way to the end) for a link to an early - and awesome! - track!

Tig has had recurring roles on several TV shows, including roles as “Officer Tig” on Comedy Central’s "The Sarah Silverman Program," and ABC’s "In the Motherhood," opposite Cheryl Hines and Megan Mullally. Most recently, Tig guest starred on NBC’s "Community," and is slated to appear on HBO’s animated series, "The Life and Times of Tim." She is currently working with Sarah Silverman on a TV adaptation of her popular regular show at LA's Largo Theater, "Tig Has Friends." Tig’s new weekly podcast, "Professor Blastoff," through The Earwolf Network, premiered at #1 on iTunes on May 2nd, 2011. You can check out the first episode HERE.
