Yeah I used Tigging instead of digging to convey how I felt about this stand-up special, because that's how I roll. And Tig had me rolling with many of her bits during this routine.
I have Netflix and have watched (scratch that) tried to watch a lot of the stand-up specials on offer. And for me most fall flat. Of course, like many things, art is subjective and that's never more true than when it comes to comedy. Some things are going to make you laugh and some are not. Tig's sense of humor may not be for everyone, and not all of the jokes land. But I think this woman is smart and funny and very astute at observational humor. which is my thing. I didn't think it worked as well in her very short lived TV show "One Mississippi". But it works here.
If you enjoy comedians who are storytellers, and don't rely so much on one liners. Or making fun of others (which for me is a form of bullying not humor) then give this a shot.
I laughed, I smiled and at 8:30 in the morning left feeling pretty darn good about having stayed in bed late to watch. Thanks Tig!
