"Finally...a new comedienne with a unique voice. Tig is truly one of the freshest talents with a future in comedy. One of our favorite new comediennes."
- Bob Read and Ross Mark, Talent Executives


"Tig is an incredibly unique and hilarious voice in stand up
today. When Tig takes the stage, all the other comics in the
room stop talking and attentively watch her set. That's how
good she is - she's a comic's comic!"
- Chris Young, Director of Talent Development


"Tig is so funny. She is so comfortable on stage and takes her time like a master. She has the timing of Bob Newhart and the body of a tiny lumberjack. It's so fun to watch her. She's funny without even saying a word. She just has that thing and it's hilarious."
- Sarah Silverman, Actor/Writer/Comedian

Bio

Tig (affectionately named by her brother as a child) was born in Jackson, MS and raised by her single mother with one older brother in Pass Christian (Pass Chris-Jan), MS. During hot Mississippi summer days, her artistic and free-spirited mother would feed them all three meals at once, then hose down their diapered bodies in highchairs to cut back on cooking and cleaning, leaving more time for her to paint donkeys on the outside of their house. Thus, contributing to Tig forming some interesting perspectives on life. The family eventually moved to Texas, where they gained a new father who brought structure and alas.....a house with no donkeys.

After serving time in a Texas high school, too much time in fact, she failed three grades by entertaining classmates rather than entertaining the notion of a successful academic career, Tig decided to drop out of school and move to Denver, CO. In search of a fresh start and having always loved music, Tig launched "Tignation Promotions", managing and promoting bands nationally. However, during her time off from work, Tig regularly attended amateur night at Comedy Works in downtown Denver, secretly wanting to be up on stage, but not yet confident enough to make that step beyond envious audience member. Success of "Tignation" finally sparked a move to Los Angeles, CA to explore greater ventures in the music industry.

Immediately upon arriving to L.A., Tig discovered not only opportunities in music, but the massive world of stand-up comedy as well. Inspired, Tig gave herself two weeks to check out comedy shows, promising herself she would get up on stage within that time. On the 14th day she got up and hasn't stopped since. What originally began as stagefright, now magnifies her deadpan delivery and combines exaggerated stories originating from her true-life experiences. With the innumerable amount of comedy venues in L.A., along with her natural talent, Tig's comedic career instantly took off. In fact, during her first year in comedy, Tig returned to Comedy Works as a featured comic and "killed" the room (....or so she says).

Tig has performed at numerous showcases and festivals, and with such great acts as Greg Giraldo, Sarah Silverman, Jim Gaffigan, Wendy Liebman, Kathleen Madigan, David Cross, Laura Kightlinger and Doug Stanhope. Tig was voted 2nd runner up in Comedy Cental's "Laugh Riots" national stand-up comedy competition, chosen for Uproar Records "Pretty Funny Women" CD, performed at Marshall's Women in Comedy Festival in L.A., The Chicago Comedy Festival, The Boston Comedy Festival, The Cat's Laugh Comedy Festival in Kilkenny, Ireland and The Toyota Comedy Festival in New York City two years in a row. Tig has been seen on late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central's "Premium Blend", featured on ComedyCentral's "Best of the Improv", as a recurring guest host on AMC's "Movies at Our House" and in her very own half hour comedy special "Comedy Central Presents TIG"!

Along with devoting her time to stand-up, Tig is also writing, producing, directing and starring in comedic short films that are extensions of her storytelling. "ZeroDollarsAndZeroSenseProductions", the film company she and producing partner Beth Schorr started in 1999, released "Poop Dreams : A Series of Stained Shorts", funded by cult film director Sam Raimi (Spider-man, Evil Dead, Simple Plan, The Gift, For Love of the Game) and his producing partner Robert Tapert, among other generous folks. Their next film, "Clown Service", also funded by Sam Raimi, is due out sometime this year.

Be sure to catch Tig regularly at such venues as The Improv, Luna Lounge, The Punchline, Stand Up New York, The Comedy Store, M Bar, The Funny Bone, Caroline's, The Laugh Stop, Acme, The Gotham Comedy Club, Zanies and The Boston Comedy Club just to name a few.
