Notaro also premieres her original comedy special Tig Notaro Happy to Be Here on May 22 on Netflix. She told the New York Times that the special celebrates family life with Stephanie and their two kids Finn and Max.
"It came from my life and my marriage and my children and my good health. It was just a very personal joy that inspired it. Obviously I’m aware of and have been speaking out about events going on in the world outside of my personal life."
Notaro will also direct Ellen DeGeneres' upcoming Netflix original comedy special.
