Tig Notaro had 4 of the worst months of her life and I can't stop laughing about it.

In a short four months comedian Tig Notaro got pneumonia, contracted a deadly bacterial infection, broke up with her girlfriend, lost her mom, and was diagnosed with breast cancer. A few days after her cancer diagnosis, she got on stage at Largo and delivered one of the bravest, most honest, and funniest stand-up sets you'll ever hear. Seriously.

Unfortunately the embeddable preview clip for Tig's set is no longer available. You can, however, still listen to it over at "This American Life."

Lady Antebellum announced it had changed its name to Lady A on June 11 as part of its commitment to "examining our individual and collective impact and marking the necessary changes to practice antiracism."

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
