Kathleen Madigan

Kathleen Madigan (born September 30, 1965) is an American comedian and TV personality. In addition to her stand up comedy performances she is a regular guest on a variety of U.S. television programs.

Kathleen Madigan is one of seven children in the large Irish Catholic family of Jack and Vicki Madigan, a lawyer and a nurse respectively. She grew up mostly in the St. Louis suburb of Florissant, although the family also lived for periods of time in House Springs, Missouri and in the Lake of the Ozarks region of central Missouri. Madigan received the first eight years of her education largely in private Catholic schools, although also did attend the public School of the Osage. It was there she excelled as a student athlete, participating in volleyball, track, and basketball. In the latter, she set a record by winning the Mid-Missouri Hoops Shoot Championship. At the time just five-feet two-inches tall, she is the shortest person to ever win the event.

Madigan attended McCluer North High School, graduating in 1983. She admitted in a 2012 interview with St. Louis Magazine however that she participated in few activities like float decorating or Prom, choosing instead to work at a steakhouse where she could make up to $200 per night. Madigan's first attempt at attending college was less than successful. She attended University of Missouri–St. Louis for two years but according to Madigan all she managed to do was accumulate $7,000 in campus parking tickets. Her second try at higher education, at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, was more fruitful and she earned a B.A. in Journalism in 1988. While at SIUE she was in charge of the student newspaper and also served an internship with the St. Louis Blues professional ice hockey team.


Unlike any other female comedian working today, Kathleen resonates with a broad base of fans from coast to coast. She packs theaters from Nevada to North Carolina and everywhere in between.
Her standup specials on HBO and Comedy Central have earned rave reviews and her latest CD/DVD "In Other Words" was one of the most downloaded comedy albums of 2006. She is a regular guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, VH1, E!, and CNN.
She is a mainstay on Comedy Central where she recently debuted a new one-hour special and appeared on The World Stands Up, USO Comedy Tour, The World Comedy Tour, and Comedy Central Presents as well as Lewis Black's "Root of All Evil."
Kathleen recently served as a talent scout on NBC's Last Comic Standing and is the host of her own weekly show on Sirius Radio Networks, The Kathleen Madigan Show.
