She was the very first comedian Free Beer and Hot Wings ever interviewed nearly 15 years ago!

Madigan is in Grand Rapids this month for Gilda's LaughFest, an 11-day comedy festival.

Her performance is part of the festival's Signature Event, is at 8 p.m. EST March 10 at DeVos Place, 303 Monroe Avenue NW in Grand Rapids. Madigan is performing with Jim Breuer, Sinbad and Justin Willman, with Michael Kosta the host.

We talked to Madigan about a bunch of topics, including the incredible LaughFest lineup, the feeling when things aren't going well on stage and about how her family feels when they're the butt of the jokes.

She's one of our favorites and we had a great time talking to her.

Madigan is currently on tour, and you can follow her on Twitter.
