Funny, Engaging, Heartwarming.
9 May 2015 | by nemastreySee all my reviews

I have hugely enjoyed Tig Notaro's comedy for years now. I first became aware of her when she was a guest on the Comedy Death Ray Podcast (now Comedy Bang Bang), and have listened to every episode of Professor Blastoff (the Podcast she does with Kyle Dunnigan and David Huntsberger) at least once.

Notaro has a unique way of looking at the world that I find hilarious, and an understated delivery that underscores her point of view. Having recently come out of an exceptionally harrowing series of events ~ surviving both pneumonia and C-Diff, the loss of her mother, the break-up of a relationship and a diagnosis of bilateral invasive breast cancer ~ her comedy has developed a depth and openness that her fans have responded to.

I was not at all surprised to find this film completely delightful. Notaro's relaxed sense of humor combined with the comfortable chemistry she shares with comedian Jon Dore and their willingness to "yes, and" each other, make the scenes of the two traveling funny and sweet. Her up-close interactions with her fans were laugh-out-loud funny and heartwarming all at the same time. I've watched this twice, and enjoyed it even more the second time.

If you're a fan of Tig's you already know you will love "Knock Knock, It's Tig Notaro". If you've never heard of her but enjoy clever humor delivered without fanfare, you will be glad you opened your door to her.
