Critic Reviews for Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10)

  • I hesitate to use pat terms like "heartwarming" and "feelgood," but Notaro is deeply skilled in turning painful, dark subject matter into a salve for her viewers.

  • One of the delights of "Boyish Girl Interrupted" is the way it showcases Notaro's gift for physical comedy... The special also gets at Notaro's particular talent for mining the funniest details out of even relatively small incidents.

  • No matter how dorky she got, Notaro could not have been cooler. There is a relaxed confidence in her delivery and a liveliness in her ideas.

  • It's an engaging, conventional routine presented with stunning self-possession and artful timing, and built on contradiction.

  • Simply surviving what Notaro has is inspirational in and of itself, of course. But Boyish Girl Interrupted puts the machinery required to translate those experiences into great comedy on full display. It's almost awe-inspiring. But mostly, it's funny.

  • Where "Live" saw Notaro reeling from a bruise, Boyish Girl Interrupted celebrates the healing. Notaro found a way to build upon her previous set without dismissing it entirely, and her joy at cracking that code radiates from every punchline.
