Comedian Kathleen Madigan will release Madigan Again, her three-hour long comedy special, on CD and for download on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and on DVD and for download on Tuesday, Dec. 10 from New Wave Dynamics. Madigan Again premiered exclusively on the streaming video network Netflix on Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Madigan’s comedic career stretches over 25 years. Renowned stand-up comedian Ron White praises Madigan as “easily one of the best comics alive.” Comedian and social critic Lewis Black calls her “the funniest woman in America.” When The Detroit Free Press interviewed Madigan, she said she “just want[s] to tell jokes.”
This St. Louis native has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The View, Comedy Central Presents, and The Late Show with David Letterman, among other shows. Madigan also starred in many TV movies and documentaries, such as Why We Laugh: Funny Women, Comics Unleashed, Just for Laughs: The American Dream?, Ron White’s Salute to the Troops comedy special (three times!), and her own Gone Madigan and Madigan Again. She has released four CDs and two DVDs.
Madigan Again contains material taken from her time spent with her Irish Catholic Midwest family, eating random pills taken from her mother’s purse, traveling in Afghanistan and her love for American sing-songwriter John Denver and the calm, glowing butterfly from the sleep aid Lunesta.
