Madigan’s Pubcast

Hosted ByKathleen Madigan

Comedian Kathleen Madigan opens her Pub every week to talk about everything and anything fun in her world. Light bar conversations ranging from her parents to unsolved mysteries, sports to chimpanzee documentaries.

Mayonnaise Tattoos, Living Hobbits, & the Yellow Brick Road to Atlantis

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Good Bug Golden Ale from Lazy Magnolia Brewing in Kiln Mississippi. She reviews her weekend in Huntsville Alabama, golfing at The Ledges (her favorite course there) and meeting fun Termites at the shows as she ran her set to prepare for her upcoming Amazon Special taping in Denver at The Paramount on June 4th.

“GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen tastes Baumhower’s Alabama White BBQ Sauce, which she likes but thinks is a little too sweet for her liking. She moves on to sample Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Sweet Carolina Reaper cheese puffs, which she spits out and compares to “FIAAAAHHHH!” She finishes her tasting with Nabisco Better Cheddars Snack Crackers, which she likes but prefers regular Cheez-Its 1000% more.

QUEEN’S COURT: Kathleen gives an update that Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has expanded to Oklahoma.

UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on the sale of Warhol’s “Shot Sage Blue Marilyn”, Mattress Mack makes a huge Astros bet, Boris Becker’s prison situation, JetBlue’s hostile takeover of Spirit Airlines,

“HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND IT”: Kathleen is amazed to read about the discovery of an undersea road to the lost city of Atlantis, a 6-year-old finds a Megalodon tooth in the UK, and a giant sinkhole with a forest inside is found in China.

2022 BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN AMERICA: Kathleen reads the new list of the best places to live in the US for 2022-23, with Huntsville AL dethroning Boulder CO at the top spot.

2022 FATTEST STATES IN AMERICA: Kathleen laughs out loud reading the 2022 list of “The Fattest States in America,” with Mississippi taking the top spot and Colorado being the Fittest. She agrees that she would also join the ranks of the “hearty Termites” in Mississippi if she lived in Biloxi since she absolutely loves the seafood and anything Cajun from Mary Mahoney’s restaurant.

MONKEYPOX RESURFACES IN AMERICA: As a follow up to Episode 50, Kathleen reads a headline advising that multiple cases of Monkeypox have recently been identified in the US and Canada. She goes on to read about a mysterious “hybrid” monkey that was spotted in Malaysia and appears to be a combination of two different species.

FREE DUKE’S MAYONNAISE TATTOOS: Kathleen is a massive fan of Duke’s Mayonnaise, and is thrilled to read an article announcing a 1-day promotion where Duke’s sponsored 70 free Duke’s-themed tattoos at Yellow Bird Tattoo near its headquarters in Richmond, VA.

SHERPA SCALES MT EVEREST FOR THE 26TH TIME: Kathleen loves reading about the Nepalese sherpas that work on Everest, and is blown away to read an article advising that Kami Rita Sherpa just beat his own world record for climbs of Everest after his 26th ascension at the age of 52.

MAN OPENS PLANE EXIT DOOR WHEN REFUSED ALCOHOL: Kathleen is amused to read an article outlining the antics of a retired California roofer who fled a moving United Airlines plane through the emergency exit after the flight crew refused to serve him alcohol before takeoff.

MYSTERIOUS “HOBBIT” SPECIES MAY NOT BE EXTINCT: Kathleen reads an article from Indonesia claiming that sightings of a small “ape-man” could be proof that the Homo floresiensis species (or hobbits,) may not be extinct and is still alive today in report parts of the area.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching David Bowie in the 1996 movie “Basquait” on YouTube.
