A 15-time guest of Jay Leno, star of the 2013 DVD Madigan Again, and winner of the American Comedy Award for Funniest Female Comedian, Kathleen Madigan’s 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. It’s that relatability that carries through in her Sirius XM program, Blue Collar Comedy and made her a favorite on USO tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. 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.
Union County Performing Arts Center
As a living landmark to the performing arts and cornerstone of the Rahway Arts District, the Union County Performing Arts Center has endured history and earned its way onto the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Recently restored to its 1928 luster, the former Rahway Theatre retains the charm and grandeur of its vaudeville theater origins while encouraging new forms of entertainment. From its 1,300 seats––where crowds once gathered to watch RKO movies and WWII newsreels––audiences can marvel at the theater’s opulent, gold-crested ceilings and ponder how many dresses can be made from its rich red drapes. One of the theater’s proudest treasures is its original Wurlitzer organ, which is small in stature, but emits massive sound out of its 500 pipes.
