The series yielded several award nominations, including WGA, GLAAD and The Critics Choice Awards. In 2013, Tig was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore release, Live, the number one selling comedy album of 2012. Tig was also nominated for both an Emmy Award and a Grammy Award for her 2015 HBO special Boyish Girl Interrupted. She received a GLAAD Award nomination for the Netflix Original Documentary Tig. Her memoir, I’m Just a Person, is a New York Times Bestseller. Tig is a favorite on numerous talk shows, including Ellen, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon.
