Tig Notaro poses for a portrait during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 20 in Park City, Utah.

In 2012, comedian Louis C.K. tweeted: “In 27 years doing this, I’ve seen a handful of truly great, masterful standup sets. One was Tig Notaro last night at Largo.” The set C.K. was referring to was Notaro’s performance the day she was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. That set became “Tig Notaro: Live,” which is now out now on iTunes.

We’ve invited Notaro to play a game called “Tig, meet Tug.” Frank Edwin McGraw, known as Tug, was one of the great relief pitchers in baseball, or at least the most colorful. We’ll ask Notaro three questions about her near-namesake.
