n her 22 year career, Kathleen Madigan has never been hotter. With her new Showtime special, Gone Madigan, in constant rotation and the DVD-CD of the special topping the Amazon and iTunes charts, Madigan has the entire year booked with over 100 theater gigs across the country and numerous television appearances. She’s recently back from her second Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s USO Holiday Tour of Iraq and Afghanistan. This year Madigan shared the stage with Robin Williams, Lewis Black, Lance Armstrong, Kix Brooks and Admiral Mike Mullen who hosted the tour. After the ten day tour, she returned home to tape appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Green Room with Paul Provenza The Joy Behar Show in New York.
She’s had countless appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and every other late night show that has come and gone. She’s had her own hour specials on HBO and Comedy Central. In addition to the stand-up appearances, Madigan has been a correspondent for The Dr. Phil Show, ESPN 2 and done commentary on VH1, CNN, E! , CMT and TV Guide’s Emmy Red Carpet. She’s performed not only in the US, but in Canada, China, Ireland and England.
In 2004, Madigan was the only comedian ever to go unchallenged on NBC’S Last Comic Standing and in 2007 was a talent scout during the show’s fifth season. Other television appearances include stints on E!, CNN, The Tonight Show (10 appearances), Letterman (5 appearances), The Conan O’Brien Show, HBO (2 of her own specials), Comedy Central (An hour and half hour special), and ESPN. Madigan also somehow defeated the ever-popular Larry the Cable guy and other notable funny comics to win the 2007 Sirius Radio Comedy Cup.
Madigan has won the American Comedy Award for “Best Female Comedian” and the Phyllis Diller Award for “Best Female Comedian.” Although she’s has turned down many writing jobs because she loves performing more, Madigan has written and produced for Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil on Comedy Central and for Garry Shandling. “I’ll write for other people–not many– but a few and only if they have a clear voice and persona that I already think is funny and if they let me write in my pajamas and smoke.”
She remains the only comedian in the history of NBC’s Last Comic Standing to go unchallenged by any other comedian–meaning no other comedian would say they were funnier than her. Madigan was a finalist in season 2 of Last Comic Standing and a judge on season 5. “It was fun to judge it once, but never again. I just can’t think of 2000 ways to tell someone they’re not funny without turning into a full blown alcoholic.”
She’s a favorite on nationally syndicated radio shows such as The Bob and Tom Show and The Stephanie Miller Show. She’s also a constant on SIRIUS-XM Radio and last year beat out all the guys–including Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White and Jeff Foxworthy– to win the listener determined “SIRIUS Challenge Cup,” deeming her the number one favorite comedian played on SIRIUS radio.
Madigan has released four CDs and two hour long DVDs.
Born in St. Louis, she now lives in Los Angeles but spends, as she puts it, “inordinate amounts of time,” with her 6 siblings and parents who live in the Midwest where she hangs out on her farm and on a raft in a lake. After 22 years of 300 nights on the road, her goal remains to move to Ireland and drink Guinness while feeding her sheep herding dogs

You can control who has access to your events, venues and calendars. Items can be public, private or semi-private.
Events, venues and calendars marked Public can be viewed by any Eventful user.
Private events, venues & calendars are viewable only by you or Eventful users you specifically grant access to. They are not viewable by the general Eventful user base. You may, however, permit Eventful users who are marked as friends the right to view your event.
Events, venues, calendars and groups that are private but shareable are also known as semi-private. That is, they are not searchable in Eventful but anyone you share the URL with can view it. This allows you to keep events, venues, calendars and groups out of the general search and still be able to share them with friends, family and contacts without requiring them to log in.
ICAL (short for iCalendar) is a standard calendar format that allows you to transfer events from one calendar to another via an .ics file format. An .ics file can have a single event or a list of events. You can download the .ics file and import it into your calendar for a snapshot of the data or you can subscribe and let your calendar program update the event data in your calendar automatically.
CSV (short for "comma-separated values") is a simple data format that many programs, such as Microsoft Excel, use for importing and exporting data.
You can import a list of events into Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo! Calendar, and other tools by using this CSV file.
RSS is a regularly updated summary of events that can be viewed through an RSS reader, along with links to full versions of events. When you subscribe to an RSS feed of events, you'll receive a summary of new events through your RSS reader. When you click on an RSS button, your browser may display a page of web code; if this happens, review your reader's documentation on how to subscribe to an RSS feed.
RSS readers are as numerous as the stars on a clear night during a concert at the park. To find a reader, try Google or ask your friends what they use.
