Very funny, especially if you're Irish American

I happened to catch Kathleen Madigan on Jay Leno and was amazed that I had never heard of a woman comic who is this funny. She made me laugh out loud. And what's really surprising is that she is not crude. Sure, she uses some off-color words and is highly irreverent, but she doesn't talk about body fluids and some of the gross stuff that many other comics do, male and female alike. This woman is genuinely funny without crossing the boundary into silliness or bathroom humor.

If you happen to have grown up with or around Irish Americans, then you will find this DVD especially hilarious because you will recognize yourself and your family in her skits. The story about her parents and their computer is a laugh riot precisely because it is so familiar. And there are others that are equally on target.

This DVD is a winner for sure.

Nice write-up Bonnie. It's refreshing to hear that there's a comic out there that doesn't resort to the standard "dick and fart" jokes. I always enjoy comics that help you find the humor in every day life. Thanks for sharing :)

By the way, tags are a great way to get your review read and cross posted in multiple communities, so I added some here for you!
