Tig Notaro Reflects on Her Turbulent Year in a ‘GQ’ Interview

“Well, originally I wasn’t planning on releasing it. I was just kind of doing the material to see what was usable for Ira for This American Life. Then, when Louis C.K. called and said he wanted to release it as an album from his site, I was like, ‘There’s no way I’m releasing that. That was not worked-out material.’ Then I thought about how it could possibly help people to hear about the horrendousness I had been through and the help I had gotten. I figured, if I could help somebody—even if it meant swallowing my perfectionist ways—I should.”
