One of today’s most talked-about standup comics headlines her first HBO special when TIG NOTARO: BOYISH GIRL INTERRUPTED debuts SATURDAY, AUG. 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT). Featuring the Grammy nominee in an all-new standup performance before a live audience, the special was taped at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston on May 31.

Other HBO playdates: Aug. 22 (4:25 a.m.), 25 (midnight) and 30 (10:10 p.m.), and Sept. 3 (midnight), 7 (1:20 a.m.), 11 (1:00 a.m.) and 17 (2:25 a.m.)

HBO2 playdates: Aug. 28 (8:00 p.m.) and 31 (11:10 p.m.)

The special will also be available on HBO NOW and HBO GO.

Among the topics Notaro covered onstage in Boston were performing and bombing in Las Vegas, taking her fiancée to meet her family in Mississippi, going through TSA screening, flying on small planes, searching for the perfect Santa Claus, laugh noises and the fun of sending misleading texts to friends.

Notaro is known for drawing on highly personal experiences in her stand-up work, including her 2012 diagnosis of breast cancer and subsequent double mastectomy, which she addressed in Boston.

Reviewing that live performance, the Boston Globe wrote, “Notaro could not have been cooler. There is a relaxed confidence in her delivery and a liveliness in her ideas.

“She performed that last quarter of the show topless…But nothing more about breast cancer, nothing more about her appearance. The biggest statement was left unspoken: This is who I am now, it’s part of me and it doesn’t change anything. I’m still funny. Still silly.

“What could be cooler than that?”

Notaro will return for season two of the critically acclaimed series “Transparent” this fall. Harper Collins will publish her memoir in 2016.

TIG NOTARO: BOYISH GIRL INTERRUPTED is produced for HBO by Funny or Die; executive producers, Mike Farah, Anna Wenger, Betsy Koch, Tig Notaro, Hunter Seidman; directed by Tig Notaro, Jay Karas; written by Tig Notaro.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
