Tig Notaro on Louis Ck ‘SNL’ Controversy: ‘I Just Want to Stake My Claim’

Earlier this week, fans pointed out similarities between a recent “Saturday Night Live” sketch starring Louis CK as a lonely guy who hires a clown and comedian Tig Notaro’s 2015 short film “Clown Service” about … a depressed and lonely woman who hires a clown to cheer her up.

While CK has yet to respond, Notaro released a statement saying she couldn’t ignore the “cacophony of voices reaching out personally and publicly about the potential plagiarizing of my film.” (A representative for “Saturday Night Live” declined to comment.)

Before she headed south to start production on the second season of her Amazon series “One Mississippi” (which counts CK as an executive producer), Notaro opened up to Variety about the controversy and why the film is so important to her.
