Where Tig Went
So our second-to-last episode featured an interview with comic Tig Notaro, in which she talks about portraying Joan Jett’s Mom in the punk-rock biopic “The Runaways.”
Well, we recently got around to seeing the film. And afterwards, we felt like the movie lacked something. Something like, oh… comic Tig Notaro.
We’ve since learned that sometime between the day we taped that interview and the day the movie opened, Tig’s scenes wound up on the cutting room floor. Our apologies if you went the film expecting to see her.
In other news, “The Runaways,” sans Tig, is apparently not getting the wide release that was originally planned for it. Coincidence? You be the judge.
