Tune in tomorrow morning as we welcome back one of the funniest comedians, man or woman, on the planet Kathleen Madigan.  I've been a fan since the 80s and always thought she had some of the best material.  She seems to touch a "midwestern nerve" with a lot of her stuff and I can't wait to see her at the State Theatre on September 30th.

Of course, I always joke that woman can't be funny.  (See what I did there?) But I have to say that there are several, including Kathleen Madigan, who can kill on stage.  And there are many more who are funny like Tina Fey but aren't doing stand up.  Here are my top 5 favorite female stand ups:

1. Tig Notaro

2. Kathleen Madigan

3. Sarah Silverman

4. Janeane Garofalo

5. Kathy Griffin
