Named one of the “9 Funniest Women on the Planet” alongside Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and described by the Detroit Free Press as “one of the funniest stand-up comedians of her generation” alongside the likes of Lewis Black, Brian Regan and Jim Gaffigan, Kathleen Madigan has had a successful 25-year career. That career has taken her around the world, performing at a variety of festival, at theaters and clubs, headlining at the Mirage in Las Vegas, and on two USO tours to Iraq and Afghanistan. “We don’t get time off like a band. Our tours never end. That’s why it makes me laugh when people say ‘how long is your tour?’ Well so far, 25 years,” Madigan says in her bio. Just nominated for a 2014 American Comedy Award for Best Concert Comic, Madigan’s stand-up show is one you won’t want to miss.
When: Saturday, doors open at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m.
Where: Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St.
