When I dialed Kathleen Madigan's number a few Tuesdays back, I could barely keep my phone steady. She's made numerous appearances on all the late-night talk shows.

I usually stay within the same subjects because that's what interests me, but it's all different material. It's simple — not as in stupid, but simple as in, can you just take all the fluff out of it and tell me exactly what you mean. That's how you started out, what you studied in school. I've seen my friend Lewis Black do it, and it's a grueling process and no, no, no, no.
