earned rave reviews! Madigan has made three popular compact discs of her comedy: Kathleen Madigan (1998) later reissued as Live (2000), Shallow Happy Thoughts for the Soul (2002) and In Other Words (2006). But you may remember her as a contestant on “Celebrity Poker Showdown” or from her appearance earlier this year as a guest commentator on “Dr. Phil.” The topic was, naturally, “Are You A Modern Woman?” Heck yes she’s a modern woman! And she’s happy to tell you all about her life as a single woman in today’s world – the beer, the sleeping in, the teasing of her nephews and, lest we forget, those nagging, living parents. Madigan can also be heard on Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 103 Blue Collar Comedy and XM Satellite Radio Channel 150 XM Comedy. But there’s nothing like the live show in all it’s glory – blue jeans, a plastic water bottle and thou. Kathleen Madigan at WHBPAC, 76 Main Street, Westhampton Beach, Sunday, August 29 at 1 p.m. Mature Content – Adults Only, Tickets $30-$60. 631288-1500,
