Kathleen Madigan, one of a handful of comedy powerhouses who have built a following based on their standup alone, has been playing to sold out audiences for 30 years. The Chicago Tribune lauds “That singular dedication to the craft shows in both the evolution of her material over the years and the way she can make a complicated joke with a hidden nub of wisdom seem both effortless and offhand.” Offers Madigan, “I’d rather do one thing really well than 10 things just kind of well. The instant gratification of stand up compared to the waiting for tv or film is right up my addict alley.”
Madigan has captured the dedication of audiences and critics alike. A true master of her craft, The Boston Globe describes Kathleen as sounding “like she could be talking off the top of her head and teeing up new material at the same time.” In addition to two one hour specials currently on NETFLIX, she has recently appeared on such comedy fan-favorite series as Comedy Central’s This Is Not Happening and Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, with Seinfeld offering “She’s small, practical and fun. She makes a lot of sense, but not too much sense, just enough to be hilarious”
Kathleen’s standup album "Bothering Jesus," from the Netflix special of the same name, was released on 800 Pound Gorilla Records in 2018 and is the highest selling release of any comedy album since 2014. It debuted on the Billboard 200 Album Chart, on The Nielson SoundScan Comedy Charts at #1, and on The Billboard Comedy Charts at #1. "Bothering Jesus" is Madigan's sixth comedy album and third special currently available on Netflix.
