November 22nd 2015- Update.
First, here's the first part of the story, and should give any curious person an idea of why I have a BEEF with "Tig" Notaro and Nick Kroll et al.
What has this, "Tig" been up to:
In order to disprove the allegations that Tig Notaro's whole cancer set was a fake set up, Notaro is now flashing herself to frightened audiences. Yes, reader, she is going topless so as to show her mastectomy scars. She admits this was a publicity stunt but it hardly seems a wise move... comedy and flashing scars just don't mix. Way too bad performance arty.
But it did shut down those who said that she never had cancer so no mastectomy but then why did she get caught sporting breasts a month or more after her alleged mastectomy
Interestingly, she went on Facebook and advertised for a make up artist the night of that publicity stunt -
And, lo and behold she was given an HBO special and a movie funded by Nick Kroll. Yes the people who funded her Netflix movie are called Catapult and if you did a little deeper - catapult is jules and lynn kroll. I used to have a link for you but now it has been removed from the internet. anyh one duing the most basic investigation can find that out.
Of course this Lynn and Jules Kroll funded uh fake uh cancer propaganda piece - was called, "Tig."
And I understand she changes her story even more.
But since Notaro has the charm of a wet roach, she won't "happen" as Nick Kroll promised. But with that kind of money behind her, she'll keep trudging to get to the top.
I have not seen these specials or the movie. can't bear looking at her or hearing her droning sociopath's voice. But, I should, cause I have no doubt she fucks up like crazy.
Also note that Stephanie Allyen was a friend of Nick Kroll and that Notaro in preparation for the cancer fame she foresaw, put it out that she was dating a Missy Pyle. But, Missy Pyle, was maybe successful enough or moral enough( I can't have a real clue) and refused to get herself entangled in a public cancer scam.
Give these three a read, and tell me that these are not suspicious ... uh... statements and facts.
Did Notaro even have a mastectomy and why did she seek a make up artist the day of the show and then delete
October 10th 2014 update hmmm.
Tons of more updates to this, but for now.... Of all places, and to all people.
Tig Notaro has now changed her story again re: treatment for cancer when talking to LARRY KING.
That Nick Kroll has some some pull. I'm telling you-
Now it's not radiotherapy ( To Claire Black in the Independant,) not hormone treatments started after surgery ( To Glamour UK), not hormone treatments set to start a few weeks ago(curve magazine) hormone treatments started a few weeks after September 2013( Peter Holmes you made it weird podcast.)
Now to Sir Larry King- it is: "I've been on hormone blockers all along."
She also reiterates that Louis CK called her pleading the day after the set that Nick Kroll and her now pretend "is very viral." Louis CK however remembers it differently- he leisurely e-mailed her a few days later. She also changes her I failed three grades story. First it was failing 9th grade 3 times, then failing 7th grade twice and eight grade once. Then, now to Mr. Larry King it's that she failed seventh and eighth grades.
See below for much more.
Another update since Ms. Maniac has changed her story again for Curve Magazine(September 18th 2014)
Addition to this piece- June 25th 2014
WBEZ radio, and a ferociously pretentious Al Gini, released this about Notaro in November of 2012. I was looking it up, because I came upon some article talking about Ira Glass's connection to WBEZ, and remembered a radio show where Notaro denied ever speaking to Louis CK before her "historical" set.
I Googled WBEZ and Notaro, and found the radio show and a BLOG: http://www.wbez.org/blogs/bez/2012-11/cancer-funny-103636
Ask yourself why public funded outlets are writing such bullshit. Could it be that Jeremy, Lynn, Jules, Nick and the rest of the Kroll machine are giving them lots of money and Tig Notaro is according to her in a Proffessor Blastoff podcast, "top of your list." Lynn and Jules Kroll actually funded her documentary " Hello I have Cancer" that likely will never get released cause good old Tig doesn't have cancer.
In the same interminable podcast discussed above, Notaro says to Nick " Oh you and that checkbook of your, Nick" in reference to how she knows of his great wealth.
From WBEZ radio
Ali Gini( A business ethics professor no less!)
Tig Notaro is in great demand in the comedy world. After doing stand
up for more than 15 years, she’s finally made it to the big time. She’s
got a new job with Comedy Central and a book deal; her debut album is
high on the charts on iTunes, and lots of magazine editors want her in
their pages. So, you may ask: “What is the secret to Notaro's sudden
success?” Well, her answer is an unusual one — she’s got cancer!
was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, and underwent a double
mastectomy, chemo-therapy and radiation treatment. This was not long
after she contracted a serious bacterial infection, lived through the
Finding out lies in the internet age is fascinating. Especially, when you know someone is a compulsive and malicious liar, who gets away with a good hundred life decimating lies, only to set up a weird twist where she is celebrated as a brave cancer survivor.
Not just that, but when the liar has set up a way to profit off faked cancer, and continues to do so in the face of her history of stalking, and kickstarter scams...it's kinda really astounding. Alissa Sterling should really say something. Heidi Feigin should spread the word too. So many should. But, since my case was infested with careerists reeking of self interest, I have to struggle to get the truth out.
I know that she is capable of the kind of lies that most are not capable of. Lies that only sociopaths can produce. Capable of lying about being a victim of serious crimes, capable of gleefully going about turning an innocent,decent, and dignified person into a "crazy stalker." Capable of trying to ruin peoples careers and jail them, because she could( due to her friendship with Nick Kroll.) Then, capable of a kickstarter scam( that would immediately be) followed by a well orchestrated case of a symptom free cancer that was highly profitable for her in every way.
The details of this seemingly simple cancer set story, change with each telling.
Why? Because it isn't true. She can't keep it straight -- just like she couldn't keep her stalker scam straight. She isn't a bright woman, and she has no regard for what is true. It's mess that she can sweep under the rug because of Nick Kroll's big idea to use Jules Kroll's tricks to make himself famous. For him to get famous he has to befriend and fund those who will get famous and then put him in their projects.
The whole cancer story is a lie, concocted to get money and sympathy- when she faced deserved ruin if Judge Richard Fruin just did the right thing. No law or evidence protected her and she would deservedly lose it all had Judge Fruin not caved to the phone calls being made by Kroll inc, Tig Notaro would be broke, and facing criminal charges and epic amounts of scorn. Alas, Judge Richard Fruin is a coward and a creep and the most basic justice was denied.
Back to the new evidence:
Some research to something somewhat unrelated led me to this link. http://www.glamourmagazine.co.uk/news/features/2013/07/a-double-mastectomy-was-my-only-option
Read, it please, and then consider the rest(below.)
Tig Notaro in Glamour Magazine
After surgery, I was put on hormone-blocking
treatments, which will last for five years. Chemo was suggested,
but I refused, since it might affect the possibility of having kids
(Note: She would tell Peter Holmes, as of September 2014 that she hadn't yet begun such a treatment. Also, she is making a documentary funded by Catapult films where she would battle cancer while trying to have a baby! Well, wouldn't hormone shots for 5 years preclude that during the documentary? Catapult is funded by the Lynn and Jules Kroll fund for Jewish Documentaries WTF)
OK, so for whatever reason(usually because Nick Kroll has a contact in the publication,) in July of 2013 Glamour Magazine UK saw fit discuss the very strange case of a grizzled lesbian self named, "Tig," who professed cancer on a stage, and supposedly thisset the world afire!
And, in this tasty Glamour piece,to my never ending dismay, Tig Notaro, has changed her simple story yet again.
Let's just focus on the treatment for this alleged stage two cancer in both breasts. And, many more tumors too according to this: http://www.standup2cancer.org/blog/view/knock_knock._whos_there_cancer
Hmmm. What is this about?
My MRI results came back
revealing more tumors, not to mention the tumor on my left side appears
to have spread to my lymph nodes, so until my surgery, they won’t be
able to tell me if it has spread to other parts of my body or not.
In July of 2013, she now says that she refused chemo due to its capacity to stop her from having kids, and that immediately after having her double mastectomy she was put on hormone blockers that "will last five years."
Well, that's all well and good, reader. But, when you get compulsive liars with a poor memory, ISSUES of veracity are sure to follow.
You see Tig Notaro told Amy Shumer she is getting Chemo. Then, she told Carol Hartsell of the Huffington Post the same thing. Flash forward to her podcast in October of 2012, when she was coincidentally aiming to sell her cancer set in time for cancer month. Here she says that others have inquired about "treatments" and she will be having "natural treatment." It's in the last two minutes of this podcast http://www.earwolf.com/episode/expectationstig-update/
So, as of October 2012, it was natural treatments for Ms. I have stage two cancer in both breasts and Ms. I told Louis CK that it spread all throughout my chest and I'm not going to make it,"Notaro
Flash forward 9 months later: Notaro being interviewed by Claire Black, a writer from across the pond(England) who claims to be sitting with Notaro in her LA loft. Well then, this is what she tells Claire Black in August of 2013, a year after supposedly doing an impromptu set about her diagnosis. and a MONTH after saying that she had hormone treatments right after surgery.
I didn’t really start doing stand-up again until three months ago,” she
says, explaining that after having a double mastectomy and radiotherapy
she wasn’t in any physical or emotional state to be getting on stage.
Here's the link so you know I can't make this shit up: http://www.edinburgh-festivals.com/blog/2013/08/22/tig-notaro-humour-tragedy/
Hmm, the fact that she never "missed a beat" and traveled extensively to promote her turkey of a professor blastoff podcast, is not as relevant as the fact that she is TELLING CLAIRE BLACK OF THE INDEPENDENT, that she did not have natural treatments, chemo, or hormone shots but now it's.... RADIOTHERAPY.
Pardon me for shouting there, but my GOODNESS. If that is not enough highly contradictory statements about things one would not be unsure of....
Well, then this teflon tig thing is scheduled to do a Nerdist Podcast with Peter Holmes( master kiss ass with a laugh so stupid it makes you want to cry, and an actual pawn talk show host care of Nick Kroll...) She's promoting her cancer tape again,and she wants to win by having some Bentzen Ball be a success this time around. It is called " A triumphant return" by Rudi Greenberg of the Washington Post. She's going to have celebrities hail her but none showed up and that's another semi-funny story.
So, she goes on this Podcast and talks about all her healthy ways and natural means, and how she loves having cancer. No sweat this cancer business.No treatments other than natural ones she goes into no detail about other than dropping some raw food talk. She also shows disgust for diet coke drinkers .... https://www.nerdist.com/2013/09/you-made-it-weird-177-tig-notaro/
At some point, and I will likely get you the minute and hour when I can bear listening to her droning voice lying through her scummy teeth.... At some point, she tells Peter Holmes on this September 2013 podcast( a month after telling Claire Black about the radiotherapy, and how she was out of commission,) that natural foods might not cut it so " I'm going to start up with hormone shots in a few weeks." Of course, Peter Holmes doesn't question this in any way or refer to her non stop changing stories.... she told Glamour that a year before she was put on these same shots and so would now be a year into them? Why go on and on about her raw foods and her disdain for diet soda drinkers and how she adored having cancer if she was really on such treatments for a year at the time of this podcast???
So, now we have chemo that is refused after surgery and hormone shots started in September of 2012. Then, natural remedies alone in October of 2012. then in July of 2013 she tells some hack at Glamour UK that after surgery she immediately was put on five years of hormone shots -- after her surgery in September of 2012. Then a month later, she tells another Brit, Claire Black, that she's been under the weather due to radiotherapy, and then a month later she tells Peter Holmes that she hasn't been under the weather at all , oh no, with her healthy diet and such, and her unspecified natural treatments, but will be starting up the hormone shots she told Glamour UK she had been on for a year in a few weeks "Hormone shots in a few weeks."
C'mon. Geesh. Ladies, and Gentlemen, this con artist now uses her ill gotten grammy nomination to get more money off another con. OK, then.
Here's some more:http://henypire.blogspot.com/2014/01/should-tig-notaro-win-grammy-for-best.html
More coming too. Today, I learned that she told some other English paper(what is up with that? Kroll and her really invest in PR and when the won't agree to bullshit about these obscure fools he makes calls to journalists who one day might work for kroll. google it... Spy Jungle. Kroll. Atlantic) that Louis CK tweeted about her set in the "early morning' and that is why she woke up to a world of fame and fortune the next morning.
Well, folks, go find that tweet(I'll post it tomorrow either way,) and see that Louis CK tweeted it at 2.19 PM pacific time. You see, the whole thing is a big lie and as she gets questioned this dim bulb has to fill the gaping holes she's leaving, but nearly no one would know about this, unless the victims of her malicious lies had reason to look into it.

Update June 25th 2014: There are a few updates since this
post was written. I have discovered from start to finish that Tig
Notaro's cancer was a set up . No grain of truth to it.
the night of the alleged set(cause I'm not even sure it wasn't an audio
made with no real audience present) to now, it's all been a fraud that
was set in motion by Nick Kroll and Notaro. In between, some were
likely duped, and some knowingly went along with it.
part needs to be fleshed out more, before I can present on this here blog. Basically, Kira Hesser was either a pawn or complicit, and from
minute one -- this was Nick Kroll getting special friends to help his
friend out of the BINDS he helped produce for her. She was being sued
for something that he played a huge part in, and he wanted to clean up her
mess cause now it might be his mess too. I doubt he does a thing out of real friendship. I don't doubt that, I know it, but have no documents to prove that.
friends include high level or low level journalists. They include
judges, cops of every kind, and prosecutors too, but that's all for the underlying story..
Such friends also include celebrities that include Louis Ck, Bill Burr, Ed Helms, Tina Fey, Amy
Poehler, Ira Glass, Lena Dunham, Terry Gross, Lance Armstrong, Christina . Many more, but that should do for now....Whatta list!
You see, Nick Kroll, funds things. He has access to billions. He has this goal of being a huge successful businessman like his father while also getting to show the kids who shunned him in Rye Day School that he's TV star and even a movie star ( As is the case with his complete funding and casting of "Adult Beginners.")
. His family is beyond influential http://henypire.blogspot.com/2014/01/review-of-kroll-show.html .
He casts people too. He gives them money, exposure, faked press, IMBD credits etc. He knows the game too well, He takes the steps to fill their wikipedia with seemingly impressive credits,and he makes sure he helps those who need help the most, and so will be deeply in his debt.
He waves around his checkbook as Notaro said on her own podcast.
Kira Hesser, Syndney Brownston, Zach Dionne, Marianne Davies, Eric Spitznagel, Russ Luipold, Carol Hartsell, Katla McGlynn ,Zach Dionne, Elliot Glazer, Jason Zinoman,Andrew Goldman( ET AL sooooo m any more.) are all wink winking it up when they push Notaro or Kroll's wares. Or, the wares of some one Nick Kroll sees as a worthy investment.
Considering that Notaro has pushed the idea that she's great, and "hasn't missed a beat" because of natural remedies alone, and that she made over 500 K on a bunch of lies....egregious as sin, yo.
It is entirely possible that some one would forgo treatment because they heard her on " You Made it Weird" or elsewhere, and heard that she loves having cancer, and has not had any downtime due to cancer cause she rejected chemo, hormones, and radiation.
