An Evening with Tig Notaro takes place on Friday, April 20, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Michael P. O’Brien Athletic and Recreation Center, 19050 Hill Commons Drive. Notaro is the 12th lecturer for the Annual Twain Lecture Series on American Humor and Culture. Ticket prices are $10 for general admission and $5 for Arts Alliance members. Advance reservations for tickets are required at Pre-ordered tickets can be picked up at will call in the recreation center beginning at 6 p.m. the evening of the event. The doors open at 7 p.m. and all seating is first come, first served.

Notaro is a comedian, actor and writer originally from Mississippi, who Rolling Stone named one of the 50 best stand-up comics of all time.  She writes, produces and stars in the semi-autobiographical Amazon series, “One Mississippi.”  Season 1 yielded several nominations including  WGA, GLAAD and The Critic’s Choice Awards.  Notaro was also nominated for an Emmy as well as a Grammy for her 2016 HBO special “Boyish Girl Interrupted,” a GLAAD Award nomination for the Netflix Original Documentary “Tig,” and her memoir “I’m Just a Person” is a New York Times Bestseller.

In 2013, Notaro was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, “Live,” which sold over 100,000 units in just six weeks. “Live” is a stand-up set delivered just days after she was diagnosed with invasive bilateral breast cancer, of which she is now in remission. Notaro remains a favorite on late night talk shows, public radio, tours around the world regularly and most recently sold out Carnegie Hall. In her time off, Notaro enjoys bird watching with her wife Stephanie, their twin sons and cat Fluff, at home in Los Angeles.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
