The actress, writer and producer created the critically-praised Amazon series One Mississippi, inspired by her life, in which she stars and executive produces. The half-hour show was recently renewed for a second season. The pilot episode, co-written by Notaro, was nominated for a 2016 Writers Guild Award. Her book, I’m Just a Person, chronicles her year of tragedy and epiphany. The work was well-received by critics who called it “raw,” “hopeful,” “funny,” “painful” and “real.”
She also received a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album for her HBO special Boyish Girl Interrupted and a 2014 Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album for her performance at the Largo, Live.
A documentary about Notaro’s life, entitled Tig, premiered at Sundance and then on Netflix in 2015.
