Laughter can make you feel better when things look bad, which is why all medieval hangmen were required to wear clown noses. Buck up with this GrouponLive deal to see Kathleen Madigan at Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet. For $20, you get one G-Pass for seating in the first or second balcony on Thursday, October 18, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $41 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
A 12-time guest of Jay Leno, star of the 2010 DVD Gone Madigan, and winner of the American Comedy Award for Funniest Female Comedian, Kathleen Madigan's irreverent musings have drawn nods from such groundbreakers as Lewis Black and Ron White. Unassuming and deeply relatable, her act might touch on topics as wide-ranging as being single, being drunk, and being drunk and single at Disneyland. Madigan has also appeared on numerous iterations of VH1's I Love the … series and as a talent scout and guest comedian on Last Comic Standing.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
