Movie review: Kathleen Madigan: Bothering Jesus

Irish American comedian Kathleen Madigan pontificates and complains on topics such as her family, Uber drivers, alcohol, and anything to do with bacon.

Kathleen Madigan: Bothering Jesus has Kathy once again expounding on a variety of subjects with her trademark quips and focus on daily life. While she can still bring the laughs and her wide range of topics keeps things interesting, she really sounded more like she was simply complaining and condescending in this show. Previous shows have been much funnier and she seemed to have a lot more energy.

Kathy on stage was the extent of the acting. Nothing exciting but she did fine.

Camera work, lighting, and staging are good and consistent with what you would expect from stand-up comedy. No light shows, fireworks, or fancy video here. Sound is reasonable.

While I do enjoy Kathy's comedy, this show just didn't measure up to some of her previous. There were some good laughs but none of the side-splitting, eye-watering comedy of her past.

This should be fine for older teens and above.

I blame it on our age, Kathleen and I. We complain more but mostly when we're awake.

I blame it on alcohol. But yes, it is quieter when you're asleep. :)
