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.
