Tig Notaro attends the 30th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall on February 24, 2024 in Los Angeles, California.

Tig Notaro's kids are still learning proper audience etiquette.

On Wednesday, the comedian joined Kelly Ripa, 53, and Mark Consuelos, 52, on Live with Kelly and Mark, where she chatted about her relationship with her 7-year-old twin sons Max and Finn. Notaro shares her sons with her partner of 11 years, Stephanie Allynne.

"So you’re a mom to 7-year-old twin boys?" asks Ripa.

"I thought you were going to say 7 children. But yeah, they’ll be 8 in June," Notaro responds.

"Oh wow. I always think that having kids is hard, having two at the same time seems to be like, baffling to me," Ripa says.

Sharing that having two kids is what's normal for her family, Notaro jokes that they'd find having one child "confusing."

"Do your kids know you? Do they know what you do for a living?" Ripa asks.

"They know me," Notaro says, laughing. "They don’t think I’m funny. I thought for sure I was not going to be the parent that the kids rolled their eyes at jokes."

"Oh, it’s inevitable," Consuelos adds.

"Yeah… so I’m that person that is like, a hack in the house. But they know I do stand-up, and when they see me or anything I’m on TV or streaming services, they refer to me as Tig Notaro," the mom of two says. "So they’ll see me and say, ‘Oh, there’s Tig Notaro. There’s Tig Notaro. There’s Tig Notaro.’ They just scroll right past."

Ripa then asks if her sons enjoy her podcast, Handsome.

"Well, they don’t listen to my podcast but they did see me do stand-up live once at a matinee show. And I didn’t account for this, but I got heckled," Notaro says.

"They were heckling you?" Ripa asks.

"They heckled me. They weren’t meaning to heckle me. They were fact-checking," Notaro jokes. "They didn’t think I was telling the truth. And so my son Max was just sitting there and he said, ‘Yeah right!’"

Ripa and Consuelos began to laugh.

"And that’s what the audience did! And he was like, ‘That’s not true,' " Notaro says. "And I started laughing and I was like, ‘I’m sorry, my kids are here and they’ve never seen me do stand-up.’ That was recent!"

"Did you get in it with him?" Ripa asks.

"Well, I said, ‘Max, this actually is true. This is a true story.’ And he goes, ‘Not!’ " Notaro jokes.
