Kathleen Madigan: n her 22 year career, Kathleen Madigan has never been hotter. With her new Showtime special, Gone Madigan, in constant rotation and the DVD-CD of the special topping the Amazon and iTunes charts, Madigan has the entire year booked with over 100 theater gigs across the country and numerous television appearances. She’s recently back from her second Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s USO Holiday Tour of Iraq and Afghanistan. This year Madigan shared the stage with Robin Williams, Lewis Black, Lance Armstrong, Kix Brooks and Admiral Mike Mullen who hosted the tour. After the ten day tour, she returned home to tape appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Green Room with Paul Provenza The Joy Behar Show in New York.

She’s had countless appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and every other late night show that has come and gone. She’s had her own hour specials on HBO and Comedy Central. In addition to the stand-up appearances, Madigan has been a correspondent for The Dr. Phil Show, ESPN 2 and done commentary on VH1, CNN, E! , CMT and TV Guide’s Emmy Red Carpet. She’s performed not only in the US, but in Canada, China, Ireland and England.

In 2004, Madigan was the only comedian ever to go unchallenged on NBC’S Last Comic Standing and in 2007 was a talent scout during the show’s fifth season. Other television appearances include stints on E!, CNN, The Tonight Show (10 appearances), Letterman (5 appearances), The Conan O’Brien Show, HBO (2 of her own specials), Comedy Central (An hour and half hour special), and ESPN. Madigan also somehow defeated the ever-popular Larry the Cable guy and other notable funny comics to win the 2007 Sirius Radio Comedy Cup.

Madigan has won the American Comedy Award for “Best Female Comedian” and the Phyllis Diller Award for “Best Female Comedian.” Although she’s has turned down many writing jobs because she loves performing more, Madigan has written and produced for Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil on Comedy Central and for Garry Shandling. “I’ll write for other people–not many– but a few and only if they have a clear voice and persona that I already think is funny and if they let me write in my pajamas and smoke.”

She remains the only comedian in the history of NBC’s Last Comic Standing to go unchallenged by any other comedian–meaning no other comedian would say they were funnier than her. Madigan was a finalist in season 2 of Last Comic Standing and a judge on season 5. “It was fun to judge it once, but never again. I just can’t think of 2000 ways to tell someone they’re not funny without turning into a full blown alcoholic.”

She’s a favorite on nationally syndicated radio shows such as The Bob and Tom Show and The Stephanie Miller Show. She’s also a constant on SIRIUS-XM Radio and last year beat out all the guys–including Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White and Jeff Foxworthy– to win the listener determined “SIRIUS Challenge Cup,” deeming her the number one favorite comedian played on SIRIUS radio.

Madigan has released four CDs and two hour long DVDs.

Born in St. Louis, she now lives in Los Angeles but spends, as she puts it, “inordinate amounts of time,” with her 6 siblings and parents who live in the Midwest where she hangs out on her farm and on a raft in a lake. After 22 years of 300 nights on the road, her goal remains to move to Ireland and drink Guinness while feeding her sheep herding dogs

Rush: Since 1974, this Canadian progressive rock band has released eighteen studio albums, produced 78 singles, and has sold over forty million albums worldwide. They are ranked only behind The Beatles and Rolling Stones in terms of sales, and they are showing no signs of slowing down, as is evidenced by the Rush 2011 concert schedule. Rush tour dates are scheduled at nearly forty shows this spring and summer.

These Canadian rockers burst onto the scene in the mid-seventies, releasing their self-titled debut album in 1974. Rush continued rockin' through the seventies, cementing their place in rock and roll history with the release of 2112, which garnered massive commercial success. This concept album tells the story of a future society plagued by authoritarian rule. The album proved to be a runaway success and is listed as one of the "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die." The other Rush album fortunate enough to be listed on the same survey, Moving Pictures, was released in 1981 and remains the band's biggest commercial success ever. The album spawned the classic crowd favorites, "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight", and was certified four times platinum.

Album after album, Rush has continued to achieve gold and platinum certification, and the guys don't plan on throwing in the towel any time soon. They have continued to evolve their style, experimenting with different musical elements and even making the odd foray into other forms of media. The band's music and persona was heavily featured in the film, I Love You, Man,, serving as the main bond between the film's main characters as they form a Rush garage cover band. More recently, the band received a star on Hollywood Boulevard and received Billboard's "Legends of Live" award for their contribution to live music and the concert experience.

Rush is currently wrapping up production for their 19th LP, Clockwork Angels, which is set for release in Spring, 2011. The band is currently on tour for their extensive "Time Machine Tour," which began in Albuquerque, New Mexico on June 29, 2010. The international tour has taken them throughout North and South America and has been extended throughout Spring, 2011. The Rush concert schedule has them embarking on the European leg of "Time Machine," this May, 2011 and they are slated to return to North America for the final summer leg of the tour. This iconic progressive rock band is known for their energetic live shows which continue to sell out, just as they did back in the seventies.
