Madeleine Begun Kane

Bayside, Queens, New York

I'm a national award winning humorist (2008 Robert Benchley Society Humor Award 1st prize winner and a National Society of Newspaper Columnists award winner) whose humor and essays have been published in numerous newspapers, print magazines, and websites and in many anthologies (including Laughing Matters; Life's A Stitch: The Best of Contemporary Women's Humor; Funny Times: The Best of the Best American Humor; Big Bush Lies; Jest Patriotic; I Killed June Cleaver; Minutes of the Lead Pencil Club; Healer {Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious Volume 2}; Cash In On Laughter; and The Contemporary Reader.)
I'm also a recovering lawyer and a funny contracts writer and a musician whose political song parodies were popular "sing-alongs" at anti-Bush demonstrations.

I live in New York City with my humor-inspiring husband Mark, who puts up with my writing song parodies during dinner, even though the poor guy thought he was marrying a nice Jewish lawyer.

Some topical humor sections of my site include political satire, current events haiku, press related humor, lawyer humor, marriage and family humor, holiday fun, feminism humor, financial humor, autombile humor, education satire, health humor, career humor, travel and vacation humor, and New York City humor.
