Tig Notaro's Album Made a Ton of Cash

Stand-up and cancer survivor Tig Notaro's recording of her acclaimed, heartbreaking Largo performance, which was released two weeks ago via Louis C.K.'s website, turned out to be a whopping success. The A.V. Club reports that the album has sold about 75,000 copies so far, which would put it at #3 on the Billboard charts if releases on C.K.'s website were set up to register on Billboard. Some estimate that the recording, which was sold for just $5 a pop, has made somewhere in the $250,000 range for Notaro so far. That's a lot of well-deserved money for Tig Notaro and cancer research.
