Re: Louis CK rumors, what did Notaro know at time of "legendary," cancer set.

Narrative is a big word/concept nowadays. So is brand. Here's the narrative that Tig Notaro wants you to follow to promote her "brand" :

Sometime in 2012, after a series of adversities, she finds out she has stage 2 cancer in both breasts. She does't take to the fetal position but instead performs some monumental cancer set, in response to the diagnosis. Lo and behold. Who is in the audience that night but one of those serious influencer types- Louis CK. Influencer is also a big word/concept nowadays.
He is there by chance, bears witness, and he is left aghast but in a good way. Beyond impressed, he takes to twitter,then to his website and then to NPR and elsewhere to make sure everyone must know of such a magnificent display of comic mastery in the face of unrelenting adversity...
Flash forward to NPR, and other assorted usual suspect elite media markets, all over the story. Brave, heroic, legendary they profess,telling us is it's a viral sensation story even th…

The Misrepresented education of Ms. Stef Willen(Nearly a memoirist for Simon and Schuster)

Why I am invested in outing this Stef Willen as a liar:

Stef Willen could never keep her story straight in that case. She mixed it up and detracted and added details as time went on. The details got uglier and uglier the more they needn't to win what they shouldn't have wanted to win.

Everything she said was a lie and she did it badly. When Nick Kroll's connections got her to win a Mcsweeney's contest in 2010, once again our disingenuous scribe can't keep her story straight within the SAME COLUMN. In the same exact column she forgets her lie and adds a more impressive lie. Amazing

You have to be kidding me. I graduated Magna Cum Laude; I was the star of several student films.

At the very least, the doors my little golden Phi Beta Kappa key were going to open weren’t supposed to be X’ed with yellow caution tape and kicked…

Spitzberg vs Notaro Appeal -Reposted with some edits for clarity and presentation- Stef Willen nearly got a Simon and Shuster deal for being the most loathsome of liars

Sunday, June 13, 2010 Spitzberg vs Notaro Appeal- the real story- work in progress- the truth in italics .

What the appeal court said( cause Notaro had Marty Singer and Nick Kroll(Jules Kroll) making calls.)
Read the story here:
Spitzberg and Stephanie Willen had a three-month relationship, which ended in May 2007. In August 2007, Notaro and Willen were in a cafe having coffee when Spitzberg approached their table and began to yell insults at them, including fucking dyke, ugly, cunt, and bitch. They ignored Spitzberg, who followed them outside, became more belligerent, and shoved/pushed Notaro. Spitzberg denied pushing Notaro.

Of note:
What the appellate court states in their unpublished opionion that was immediately published while Spitzberg was illegally incarcerated.
