I can’t remember where I first saw this. I think it was at a Tig Notaro concert and she showed it before she did her stand up. Tig is one of my favorites. She finds so much humor in both the mundane and the terrible…in this case, home alone, depressed, she orders a party clown just for herself.

I had completely forgotten about it until I heard about SNL perhaps stealing the idea for one of their sketches.

If you want to here more of her comedy, her advice podcast Don’t Ask Tig is a good place to start. Also, this chance recording of a standup she did shortly after learning about her cancer diagnosis is a revelation.

Based on Tig’s true story, desperate for a brighter mood, she enlists the services of a traveling party clown.
