There are not enough awkward situations, not enough triple meetings with Taylor Dayne in strange eateries, for us to express our allegiance to comedian Tig Notaro. Sure, she giggles in the same pools as Louis CK and Sarah Silverman while riding Conan’s barbarian tracks into infamy – her live comedy album sold more than 100,000 copies; her podcast, Professor Blastoff, is an amazing ramble from a friend you hold most dear. But she also possesses that comedian’s singular trait – the one that is both self-effacing and amplified, completely in character but somehow relatable and universal – that makes her winding yarns so bright and grasp-worthy. Come for the downcast gazes and shoe-shuffling of an outsider; stay for the little bursts of connection that are generated by an accomplished outsider. Good stuff, Taylor Dayne included.
