She even made history in her hometown when she won the 1978 Mid-Missouri Hoop Shoot Championship with the height of just four feet and five inches, the smallest person to ever win the award.

From freelancing and performing at various bars, one comedy club offered Madigan a stable job as a comedian. The Funny Bone became her kick-off point as a performer and she slowly gained popularity with her unique style of incorporating everyday news and life and ending it with punches of jokes. She quit her other jobs and comedy became her life. The start with The Funny Bone not only began her new career but also boosted her net worth.

With her growing popularity in the comedy club scene, Madigan soon infiltrated television. Some of the shows she appeared in included “I Love the 90s: Part Deux”, “Last Comic Standing”, and “Celebrity Poker Showdown”. She has also been a frequent face in late night shows, including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “Late Show with David Letterman”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “The Bob Tom Show”.
