For a comedian who can boast the ringing endorsement of Lewis Black (he once called her "the funniest woman in America"), not to mention a 20-year-plus career as an outstanding stand-up, Kathleen Madigan has spent much of her time not in the direct glare of the popular spotlight, but rather beneath the fringes of comedy greatness. She worked her way through the ranks of the comedy club underbelly, flexing hilarious muscles on stage, television and beyond. However, with a recent Showtime special, Gone Madigan, played nearly 'round the clock, and a devoted fan base of loyal laughers following her developing career with the eagerness of any good Dead Head, it's probably safe to assume that Madigan's comedy legend status is on the precipice of being locked down and secured. Come check out this incredible wordsmith as she drops her hilarious knowledge on the Miller Auditorium at Western Michigan University. Even if you've already seen her perform, you'll most likely go mad-again (har har) with laughter.
