Comedy Bio

Maureen is frank, fast, feisty, sharp and engaging – honest humour with attitude! She works as a stand up comedian and compere all around the UK and abroad and even gigs in German! As an experienced compere, Maureen is known for her quick wit and sharp audience interaction. In the UK she is one of the few (if only) comedians who works regularly on the mainstream and urban comedy circuits.

Her gigs have ranged from being the support act for the entire West End run of The Naked Magicians at the Trafalgar Studios as well as one of the warm up acts for Puppetry of the Penis to performing at the Barbican alongside Arthur Smith; supporting Shazia Mirza on tour; to being one of the acts at the Jamaica vs The World gigs at the Shepherds Bush Empire. (Maureen was representing the latter category!)

Frank, fast, feisty, sharp & engaging – honest humour with attitude!

If you have been lucky enough to see her perform you will be fully aware of just how funny and infectious this women is – Time Out.

The star of the night was the compere Maureen Younger – she blew the roof off. … A tour de force from her and I too can’t wait to get her back at the Cheeky Monkey comedy club
(
Martin Mullaney, Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club)

Always funny, always naughty but nice and there has not been an audience that hasn’t loved her. We hope to get her back soon
