Comedian Kathleen Madigan is performing new material in “The Mermaid Lady” standup comedy tour, visiting over 25 cities including the Webb Center on Friday, April 8 at 7:30 pm. Winner of the America Comedy Award for “Best Female Comedian,” Madigan has performed on nearly every late night show ever made: Leno, Letterman, Conan, and Ferguson.
With her trademark sharp wit and wry observations, she has been called “the funniest woman in America” by Lewis Black and “one of the best comics alive” by Ron White. Madigan’s stand-up routine, taking on politics, family and American culture, has left audiences howling for over 25 years.
Madigan is a regular panelist on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, and she was nominated for a 2014 American Comedy Award for “Best Concert Comic.” 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.
Opening the show for Madigan is Mike Gaffney. Performing for over a decade, Gaffney was on the first season of Gotham Comedy Live and was a semi-finalist on Season 8 of Last Comic Standing. Whether he is talking about being a single father, or clean living; his show appeals to audiences of all ages.
The performance may include adult content. Tickets start at $35 for adults.
