Tig Notaro is getting ready to kick off the second season of her Amazon show, One Mississippi. Despite Louis CK being credited as an executive producer, Notaro has went on to reveal she and Louis don’t speak anymore. In a new Daily Beast interview, she even commented on a possible reason why her and Louis have kept their distance. If you can recall, several allegations have came up on Louis’s behavior towards female comedians and Notaro feels he should seriously handle the matter. Check out a few excerpts below.
Tig on CK’s involvement with her show:
“It’s frustrating, because he has nothing to do with the show,” Notaro adds. And that frustration is apparent in her voice. “But I don’t waste my time on him or what anyone thinks. His name is on it. But we are writing the show, the writers’ room. We’re sitting in editing. We’re acting. We’re on set. We’re doing press. And everyone that’s directly involved in the show works very hard. They are decent, talented human beings. And I feel lucky to be surrounded by them.”“But yeah, he has nothing to do with the show,” Notaro repeats for the third time, without using C.K.’s name.
Tig on CK’s allegations:
“I think it’s important to take care of that, to handle that, because it’s serious to be assaulted,” Notaro says in response. “It’s serious to be harassed. It’s serious, it’s serious, it’s serious.” “And that’s what we want to do with this show,” she continues. “We of course want to create comedy, but we also really, really feel like we have the opportunity to do something with One Mississippi, because it does not stop. And, you know, I walk around doing shows at comedy clubs and you just hear from people left and right of what some big-shot comedian or person has done. People just excuse it.”
