Comedians Tig Notaro and Sarah Silverman sit down with the NYT at Sundance for a long conversation about their upcoming films (Tig and I Smile Back, respectively) and end up giving us a peek into their wonderful friendship. [SLYT]

Loved it - the chemistry between them. The worlds needs more Tig, such an amazing comedienne.

Also, props to the person running the interview. She allowed them to riff and did not interrupt.

Absolutely props to the interviewer, she steps aside at all the right moments. What a nice video, like those two so much.

Tig seems like a sweetie. Sarah Silverman deserves all the side-eye, tho. (Link NSFW)

Not much to add, but I enjoyed this. Thanks.

This was wonderful!

There was a moment where Tig was talking about her experience healing from her mastectomy and her evolving relationship with her body and Sarah was looking at her and listening so carefully to her. I felt like I was seeing such tremendous respect and admiration between them.

This also led me to Tig's appearance on Conan that she talked about in the interview - that cracked me up. These two are a couple of my faves!

Their talk was just so great. They are clearly very lovingly mocking to one another in just that way that two long time friends can be. I planned on tuning in for a few minutes, but found myself riveted for the whole thing.

I loved the little moment where Tig is gesturing off to the distance and Sarah pretends to bite her fingers. It's such an affectionate little thing, sort of sweet and gentle, like something you might do with a child.

I went back for another listen to Tig telling the greatest story ever told and I'd forgotten that Silverman played a part in that, too. Also, can we get a show where Tig and Norm MacDonald just sit around and talk about stuff? Ellen DeGeneres can be there, too.
