Comedian Tig Notaro will be releasing her debut album, Good One, with prestigious indie music label Secretly Canadian on August 2, 2011. She is the first and only comedian signed to the label. Good One contains well crafted, ridiculous material touching on subjects such as Tig’s family tree, Mexican hotel door signs, birthing a dinosaur, and how 90’s pop singer Taylor Dayne is the easiest person in the world to run into, amongst other things. A deluxe version of the album contains the long anticipated DVD of Have Tig At Your Party, the human equivalent to the “burning log” DVDs.
