CHICAGO – As performance ramps up again in 2022, one of the great comic voices on the stand-up comedy scene is Katie Hannigan. The veteran jokester has recently released a comedy album, the perfect-for-the-times title of “Feeling of Emptiness.” Ms. Hannigan riffs on herself essentially, with sharp observations on being a woman in these particular times.

Hannigan originally hails from Indianapolis, Indiana, and returned to her home state to record “Feeling of Emptiness.” She’s been on the stand up circuit since 2010, and has appeared on Comedy Central, MTV, the Travel Channel and HBO Max. She made her chat show debut on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ (see below), and co-hosts the comedic lifestyle podcast “Lady Journey” with fellow comic Sarah Toilemache. She’s on the club circuit in New York City, appearing at The Comedy Cellar, Stand Up New York and the New York Comedy Club, as well as touring.
