Kathleen Madigan, like many comics, is talking a bit more about politics in her set these days. “Because it’s so in our face,” she says. “You can’t even get on Twitter without hearing something about something. That’s why I don’t want Oprah as our next president. I don’t want a loud person. I want a quiet person that does their job.” Like it or not, she points out, we’re all in this. “Even if you say, ‘I’m going to ignore Trump.’ Well, good luck with that.” Trump is not taking up that much of her act, though. “I’m mostly talking about the smaller things I’ve talked about forever: my family, traveling, and the silly things in life. And even the Trump stuff I keep light and silly. I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind, because you’re never going to change anyone’s mind. I just try and point out the absurd.
