Tig Notaro
Tig  Notaro
Tig Notaro is a standup comedian, storyteller, and writer originally from Mississippi. Tig writes, produces, and stars in the semi­-autobiographical comedy series One Mississippi, premiering this fall through Amazon Studios. Her memoir, I'm Just A Person, released this year through Harper Collins Publishing, is a New York Times Bestseller. The Television

Academy has acknowledged Tig with an Emmy nomination for her HBO stand­up special Boyish Girl Interrupted. Her Netflix Original documentary, TIG, premiered to critical acclaim and is available for streaming. You can also see Tig as "Barb" on Amazon’s Emmy Award­winning series Transparent.

In 2013, Tig was nominated for a Grammy Award for her standup release, LIVE, which sold over 100,000 units in just six weeks. LIVE is a standup set delivered just days after Tig was diagnosed with invasive bilateral breast cancer. Tig has since announced her cancer to be in remission, and remains a favorite on Conan and This American Life. In her time off, Tig enjoys bird watching with her wife Stephanie, their twin sons, and cat Fluff, at home in Los Angeles.
Jill Bryan
Jill Bryan
This married mother of two has always had an appreciation for performing and making people laugh, but didn't discover her true calling of stand-up comedy until July of 2006. Since then, she’s worked with Jimmy Fallon, Norm Macdonald, Jeffrey Ross, Robert Schimmel and other great comedians at Stand-Up Live, the Improv clubs, The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store and other respected venues around the country. Jill was personally asked to emcee a fundraiser by world-renowned musician Nils Lofgren, who also performed at the event, and has been a favorite at the comedy events held by The Jack Morton Foundation, an Arizona-based group that raises money to fund pediatric cancer research.

Jill was the only female in The Comedy Squadron, a group of five very funny comedians who perform for the U.S. military. In the spring of 2013, the group traveled to Germany, Belgium and England to provide some much-needed comedic relief and help boost morale at 8 different military bases. It was the experience of a lifetime that Jill cherishes as her greatest comedic accomplishment to date. The summer of 2014 brings Jill and The Comedy Battalion to Italy, Greece and Turkey, for yet another military tour.

Every Tuesday night you can catch Jill hosting her own comedy show at Dos Gringos, a sports bar in Tempe, AZ, where the comedy is mediocre and the food is Mexican.

Plus, you can now hear Jill on the radio as the brains and voice behind the weekly segment, “What A Mouth” on the syndicated, “Lu Valentino Show.” Tune in to www.i100rocks.com (http://www.i100rocks.com) every Friday at 6:20pm PST to hear Jill’s opinions on what's happening in entertainment, sports and her living room. If it’s annoying her, she wants you to know about it.
