I didn't see a review so am writing one because Gone Madigan is a 10 to
me, not a 7.1, or whatever IMDb shows. Why? It's very funny. But so are
many comics. She seems like an interesting person, someone you'd enjoy
being around. So are many comics. So what makes her special? Her
technique is flawless. I was just watching Joe Rogen, and as funny as
he is, he resorts to saying things like "this is just comedy, I'm not
like this in real life". Madigan never breaks her persona to excuse
something. She doesn't break character to voice a pet peeve. She's
very, very disciplined in how she tells her stories, though that is
very far from how she appears. She makes it look easy, way TOO easy.
She's one of the few comedians where I remember her bits long after
watching. I remember the stories she tells. I can't say that for most
comedians I watch. That's a 10 in my book.
