Her innocent good looks are just a cover for Last Comic Standing winner Iliza Shlesinger's acerbic, stream-of-conscious comedy that she unleashes on an unsuspecting audience in her hometown of Dallas in her stand-up special "War Paint."
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.
