Over Kathleen Madigan’s 25-year career she has performed on nearly every standup television show ever made. Leno, Letterman, Conan, Ferguson and most recently in 2015 on the new The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, and she recently filmed her fifth appearance on Ron White’s Salute To The Troops set to air in the spring of 2015 on CMT. In 2014, Madigan was nominated for an American Comedy Award for Best Concert Comic and her third hour-long special, Madigan Again, was named one of iTunes Best Comedy Albums. Madigan Again, premiered on September 11, 2013 exclusively on Netflix in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Latin America, and is also available on CD, DVD and audio or video download. Previously she’s released 5 CDs and 3 DVDs and starred in 2 HBO specials, 3 Comedy Central specials, 4 CMT Salute to the Troops specials with Ron White and her previous hour-long special, Gone Madigan, premiered on Showtime and is available on Netflix.

She’s won the American Comedy Award for “Best Female Comedian” and the Phyllis Diller award for “Best Female Comedian.” Although she’s turned down many writing jobs because she enjoys performing more, she has written and produced for Lewis Black’s “Root of all Evil” on Comedy Central and for Gary Shandling’s Emmy monologues. She’s done two USO tours to Iraq and Afganistan with pals Lewis Black, Robin Williams, John Bowman and musicals acts Kid Rock, The Zac Brown Band, Kix Brooks and Kellie Pickler. “There’s no better show on earth than a show for the troops. Trust me, no crowd is as happy to see a show as 1000 soldiers in Kabul. I do USO shows at home here in the US too but the further people are away, the more they appreciate it. I don’t think they get paid enough for a hard job so I like to do something for free when I can.”

She remains the only comedian in the history of NBC’s Last Comic Standing to go unchallenged by any other comedian–meaning no comedian would say they were funnier than her. Madigan was a top three finalist in Season 2 and and a judge on Season 5.

She’s a favorite on nationally syndicated radio shows such as the The Bob and Tom Show and The Stephanie Miller Show. She’s also in constant rotation on SIRIUS-XM Radio and is repeated voted #1 audience favorite by listeners.

Madigan has performed internationally at festivals and theaters in Ireland, England, Australia and has filmed six Montreal Gala Shows at the Montreal Comedy Festival for Canadian television.
