National Tour Will Bring Madigan to Theaters Across the Country
Comedian Kathleen Madigan announces her new “BOXED WINE & BIGFOOT” TOUR with dates through Spring 2018. Blasting off January 12th , 2018 Madigan will start in Boston and 30 cities later will end on June 22nd headlining the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. “I had most of the summer off, then this September toured all of Canada with Lewis Black. When I came home to this tour schedule I couldn’t have been more excited. It’s a lot of cities I know and a few that I haven’t been to which is the perfect mix.”
“We all need the reliable, comfort food-like laughs we can get. And Madigan is one of the most reliable and warm hearted comics out there. She’s the bawdy aunt that won’t mind if you take a drag off her cigarette or a sip from her wine glass while your parents aren’t looking”—Paste Magazine
“She’s small, practical and fun. She makes a lot of sense, but not too much sense, just enough to be hilarious.”—Jerry Seinfeld “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”
From 25 appearances on the Tonight Show and multiple appearances on Letterman and Conan to recently riding around with Jerry Seinfeld in his internet series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" Her most recent special "Bothering Jesus" is her fifth hour long standup special and will be her third special to be available on Netflix.
She's described by the Detroit Free Press as the “funniest woman doing stand-up right now but no gender qualifier is necessary. Along with Lewis Black, Brian Regan and Jim Gaffigan, she's one of the funniest stand-up comedians of her generation.”
Madigan has performed internationally at festivals in theaters in Ireland, England, Hong Kong, Australia and has filmed six Montreal Gala Shows at the Montreal Comedy Festival for CBC TV. She's won the American Comedy Award for "Best Female Comedian" and the Phyllis Diller award for "Best Female Comedian." She has done multiple USO tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
