Tig is known for the critically acclaimed documentary, Tig, the semi-autobiographical Amazon series, One Mississippi, the Showtime documentary, Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro, and numerous comedy specials and TV appearances. Tig’s memoir, I’m Just a Person, has been published by Harper Collins.

Friends of Micheltorena would like to thank Tig Notaro for donating her time and talents to support this cause.
Proceeds from these events are used to improve the educational programs at Micheltorena Elementary School, a community public school within LAUSD, which offers a dual language curriculum in English and Spanish and serves a community of special needs autistic students. Over 50% of the student body of Micheltorena qualifies as low income. Fundraising by Friends of Micheltorena pays for 65% of the arts classes offered by the school, 50% of PE instruction, and natural science education through the community garden. The school has begun its second of a four year program of professional teacher training on Balanced Literacy from Columbia University, better known for the Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop components of the program. To date, Friends of Micheltorena has donated over $20,000 to support this training program.
Giving our kids a diverse and well rounded education has increased the demands on public schools; the need for community fundraising is greater than ever. Local schools, ours included, now embark on raising $150,000-$400,000 per year to support school programs.
