I saw him at Cobb's in SF, so between tough parking and long line to get in, give yourself extra time.

If you sit near the front know that you will be targeted for material towards the end of the show :)

Quotes & Highlights

Named best female stand-up comic at the American Comedy Awards.
“Her original gender-neutral material, timing and likable persona combine to make Madigan one of the fastest rising stars in comedy.” Los Angeles Times

Description

Who did Jay Leno call one of America’s funniest female comics on The Howard Stern Show? Who did Gary Shandling ask to be a contributing writer for the 2003/04 Emmy Awards? Who did Bob Costas say was one of his favorite comedians? Who was the only comic on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” to go unchallenged by her peers? Who was the only 5’2’’, Mid-Missouri Hoop Shoot Champion – St. Louis native comedienne Kathleen Madigan.

Voted Best Female Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards- Kathleen’s ability to talk about serious topics and draw insane conclusions is the reason she sells out comedy clubs and theaters across the country. The former journalist and Southern Illinois University graduate’s superb timing and polished act has made her a favorite among club goers and late night audiences. She has also starred in her own popular HBO Half-Hour Comedy Special. She is a veteran of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Conan O’Brien Show and The Late Show with David Letterman.

Kathleen has carved out a successful stand-up career and is currently exploring her off-stage talents. She has landed commentary appearances on VH-I’s 50 Greatest Celebrity Feuds, E! Entertainment’s 100 Greatest Celebrity Oops!, Hollywood Squares, CMT, FOX Sports Net’s The Best Damn Sports Show, Style TV’s Style Court and is a contributing writer for US Weekly’s Fashion Police.

Comedy Central is a popular venue for Kathleen’s topical, sarcastic take on life’s everyday occurrences. She landed her first pilot, The Couch, produced by Happy Days alumnus Henry Winkler. She starred in her own half-hour comedy special Comedy Central Presents: Kathleen Madigan and the USO Comedy Tour Special. She recently returned from Melbourne, Australia where she starred in the Comedy Central special The World Comedy Tour.

Kathleen recently released her second CD “Shallow Happy Thoughts for the Soul” and her first DVD titled “The First DVD”.

Her goal remains to make enough money to move to Ireland and drink as much Guinness as humanly possible.
