The trailer itself explains the vibe of Notaro's brand of comedy while mixing in the animation to help guide it along. A unique experience for the comedy fan and for Notaro fans as well. The animation ranges, allowing a whole variety of styles to entertain audiences. The fully-animated special airs on HBO on Saturday, July 24th from 10-11 PM, and then will be available to stream afterward on HBO MAX. Obviously the comedy special is written by Tig Notaro as well as being executively produced at the same time.

"The hour-long special blends Notaro's signature voice and storytelling with a variety of captivating artistic styles as she recounts a hospital bed proposal, a high school talent show gone awry, the repercussions of a dental procedure, unintentionally blowing off fellow comedian Jenny Slate, a road trip with Dolly Parton, and more. Funnier and more animated than you've ever seen her before, Notaro's groundbreaking and fearless comedy comes to life over the course of this visually-innovative special."
