Out and proud lesbian stand up comic and actress Tig Notaro has a Netflix special, and judging by the trailer, it’s going to be brilliant.
She gained fame with a bit on bumping into – and being brushed off by – 80s pop star Taylor Dayne repeatedly. In 2012 she announced she had been diagnosed with breast cancer as the opening to a show, a recording of which went on to sell in record numbers. She started dating actress Stephanie Allynne after meeting on the set of In a World… The couple married in 2015 and gave birth to twin sons the following year.
Notaro is also scheduled to appear in the second season of Star Trek: Discovery next year as an engineer.
Happy To Be Here arrives on Netflix on 22 May.
