Notaro Appearance On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

1 min read

Tig Notaro, who will be appearing on Star Trek: Discovery this season, appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, where she spoke about what it’s like to appear on a Star Trek show

But first, she teased Colbert with a bit of technobabble as she explained what it was like to be on his show. “It’s like a roomful of pleasant subspace particles wrapped in a tachyon field of good vibes,” she said.

But, “I have no idea what I’m saying on that show (Discovery). “I don’t. I mean, it is so embarrassing. I can’t even picture what I’m talking about [when it comes to technical dialogue], you know?

“When I’m learning lines in other shows or movies or something, I can kind of visualize what I’m talking about; on Star Trek, I’m just like, ‘Okay, I have to just remember these words.'”

So who does Notaro play on Discovery? “I am a human,” she said. “I’m a commander – Jet Reno – and I actually got to name myself.”

She went on to describe her Star Trek uniform, saying, “It’s cool.”

Notaro visited a cousin of hers recently, and she told him that she was going to appear on Star Trek: Discovery. “Wow, Tig. You know you’ve made it when you’re in outer space,” he said.
