PODCAST COMEDY—Ever since Tig Notaro's breakout stand-up set last summer, where she worked through her fresh emotions about being diagnosed with cancer, it's become difficult to get a ticket to one of her shows. Tonight's no exception. She's joined by her fellow Professor Blastoff podcasters, the very funny David Huntsberger and Kyle Dunnigan, for a live version of the popular show. CF
