CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Comedian Kathleen Madigan performed at the Charleston Music Hall on Saturday with opening act Vic Henley. Madigan has appeared in numerous TV talk shows and has her own one hour special called “Gone Madigan” that premiered on Showtime and is now available on Netflix

Here are our 5 Around Town five favorite moments of the packed show in Charleston.

1 - When the Alabama born Henley talked football in the South, he called Steve Spurrier "the head cock" and joked about how silly the rest of the country is for thinking their teams are real football teams.

2 – Henley's Paula Deen accent is spot on. His recipe for fried lard? Not so much.

3 – Joking about Bill Cosby's alter ego, Madigan said, “He's not Cliff Huxtable! I wouldn't see a cast member from Gillian's Island and wonder, how'd they make it off the island?”

4 – When making a very timely statement about the Brian Williams scandal, Madigan told a story about being on an overseas mission with Lance Armstrong. “I had to listen to Lance talk about himself for two hours and didn't throw him out of helicopter. I shoulda gotten a medal!”

5 – Discussing how to get people to cough up money for any kind of fundraiser, Madigan suggests using Sarah McLaughlin. Have you seen those sad animal ads? That's the way you make things happen!

The laughs didn't stop there. Madigan followed up her night in Charleston by live tweeting the Grammys, making statements like, “Kanye wore his best Al Sharpton velour track suit tonight. He and Kim deserve each other.”

If you missed her stop in Charleston, you can catch Madigan later this month when she makes stops in Columbus, GA, on Feb. 27, Atlanta on Feb. 28 and then back in South Carolina at Clemson on March 1.
