Kathleen Madigan, the only comedian in the history of NBC’s Last Comic Standing to go unchallenged by any other performer, will take the stage for one night only at Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College on February 6, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. This will be Madigan’s first-ever performance in the Greater Columbia, S.C. area.
Known nationally for her Comedy Central and HBO specials, the American Comedy Award winner will perform Madigan Again, a merciless showcase of wit delivered via Madigan’s signature dry candor.
“I honestly could not believe she agreed to play a 400-seat hall,” says Katie Fox, Executive Director of Harbison Theatre. “Kathleen Madigan is a really big name now and could fill a much larger auditorium. It’s a huge win for our audience that she likes the intimacy our space provides.”
Why it’s a must-see:
2014-15 is packed with nationwide appearances and performances for Madigan, who never slows down, spending on average 300 out of 365 days of the year on the road.
A veteran of late-night talk shows with O’Brien, Letterman, Leno and more, Madigan’s no-frills standup touches everything from tales of her Democratic, Irish Catholic family and rambunctious jailbird friends to her shaky relationship with the gym (constantly swayed by her love for the bar scene).
Madigan is currently nominated alongside other up-and-coming favorites like Bill Burr, Louis C.K., Kevin Hart and Patton Oswalt for her second American Comedy Award.
Madigan Again is one of nine shows selected for Harbison Theatre’s 2014-2015 Signature Series. Individual show tickets and The Flex Pass, offering a 10% discount with the purchase of four or more tickets, can be purchased at www.HarbisonTheatre.org.
