We reported last month that the casting process had begun for Sarah Silverman’s single-camera comedy pilot for NBC . Well, its been announced that comedian and Sarah’s BFF Tig Notaro has joined the cast!
Notaro, who was a regular on Comedy Central’s The Sarah Silverman Program, was a natural choice. She will play a lesbian mother of a 4-year-old living in Susan’s (Silverman) apartment building in Manhattan. The character, described, by the Hollywood Reporter, as an outgoing, odd “tiny Tom Cruise,” befriends Susan. Notaro, who has also appeared on Community and and did voice work on the animated The Life & Times of Tim, joins cast members Harris Wittels (Parks and Recreation, writer), June Diane Raphael (NTSF:SD:SUV), and Ken Leung (Lost).
The veteran comic also co-hosts the popular podcast Professor Blastoff and last year released her debut stand-up comedy album Good One. She also had a killer set on Conan in December, which you should totally check out below.
