(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) has added a second show for Kathleen Madigan's 8 O'Clock Happy Hour Tour, which comes to NJPAC on Friday, April 3, 2020. Shows will take place at 7:00pm and 9:30pm. Tickets range from $49-$59.
When Kathleen Madigan takes the stage, you’re in hilarious hands. She’s no nonsense, no holds barred, and “no filler, all killer.” The Chicago Tribune says she’s “all but perfected the art of crafting and delivering a perfect joke”—no surprise for a road warrior who’s played to sold-out crowds across the country for nearly 30 years. You’ve seen her on every late night show ever, along with her Netflix special “Bothering Jesus” and Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” NJPAC audiences demanded we bring Kathleen back after her last appearance in Newark—come see why.
Jerry Seinfeld says, “She makes a lot of sense but not too much sense. Just enough to be hilarious.” Lewis Black calls her, “One of the best comics working today and one of my favorites and I’m not getting paid to say that.” And Ron White says, “She’s not just one of the best ‘female’ comics, she’s one of the best comics, period.”
