Comedian Tig Notaro was rushed to the hospital after her November 7th show in Philadelphia. The comedian had been on her Boyish Girl Interrupted tour, which included the now infamous “topless” show at the New York Comedy Fest, when she suffered from a burst cyst that led to massive internal bleeding. Notaro took to Facebook to explain her situation:
“dearest humans- it is me, tig. (notaro.) thanks to everyone for your support and concern. i am happy to say that i am finally on the mend! what happened you ask? well, after my ridiculously fun show in philly, as i was about to leave the venue, i collapsed in horrific pain, rushed to the ER and found that a cyst had burst causing MASSIVE internal bleeding. they thought the hemorrhaging would stop and heal on its own, but unfortunately it did not. so, after a couple of horribly uncomfortable days of pain, they had to do surgery to stop it and clean up my insides. too much information? not enough information? we will leave it at that. thanks again and please know that i’m resting on a ton of drugs, walking when i can, doing my breathing exercises and trying my darnedest to get back to this tour that has been nothing short of the best time. thanks again and see your faces soon!”
With no return date set, Notaro’s Boston and Denver dates were cancelled earlier this week and will be rescheduled. We wish Tig all the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
