FIRST LOOK: Tig Notaro Battles – and Finds the Humor in – Breast Cancer in Netflix Documentary Tig

Originally posted 06/29/2015 12:00PM

Tig Notaro's career was on the rise when a number of personal tragedies befell her in quick succession, forcing her to find humor in the face of death.

On July 17, Netflix's documentary Tig gives an inside look at what else what running through Notaro's mind during one of the most trying – and strangely amusing – periods of her life.

"As soon as I was diagnosed, everything came over me as funny," she adds in PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly's exclusive First Look trailer. "I love stand-up so much. I wanted to do it one more time."
