For Laughs, Get Madigan

When Lewis Black calls you “the funniest woman in America,” it can be seen as a gift and a curse. Female comics get a bad rap sometimes, but Kathleen Madigan has spent over 20 years transcending all of the potential backlash usually thrust upon female comics, and she’s done it without the usual audience pandering of girlie-parts jokes. A fan favorite on the second and third seasons of Last Comic Standing, Madigan has made even the toughest judges laugh, and she’s bringing that awesome wit to town in support of her newest release, Gone Madigan. Kathleen Madigan takes to the House of Blues stage Thursday night at 8 p.m. at 2200 N. Lamar St. Tickets are $20 to $27.50. Call 214-978-BLUE or visit
