  2. Having watched comedians like Jen Brister, Zoe Lyons and Mercedes Benson at what is now MY Comedy, this is the best comedy night out! There will be parts of the evening that may descend into hilarious mayhem, how could it be otherwise when compered by the hilarious and irreverent Maureen Younger? I guarantee – you will go home laughing!

  3. I have been going to My Comedy events since 2011 & I’ve kept going back (like many others) because of the constant stream of fresh, exciting and dynamic comics. Many of the comics I’ve seen over the years, across cities have been highly experienced, some have just been cutting their teeth in the world of comedy but are all held together by the quick-witted, spontaneous and persistently hilarious Maureen Younger. Maureen never misses a beat and sometimes changes the entire directional of her material because of something that’s come out of her interaction with the audience; I will never forget her bellowing through an intimate venue above a London bar in a New York accent which became the motif for that night.

  4. I have been gigging at Maureen’s shows for a few years now and can honestly say that it’s always an absolute pleasure to perform. Not only she is a total professional with the acts, completely supportive, and a brilliant MC, there is invariably a warm and friendly audience, and great ambiance all of which make for a lovely experience.

  5. The Retro bar in London is my favourite place to perform. I always feel supported and there is always a warm friendly atmosphere, mainly down to Maureen’s compering skills. She is funny, witty and scary all at the same time and has the ability to create an amazing, positive, energy which brings the audience together as soon as she steps onto the stage and she keeps this up until the show is finished. Go Maureen!

  6. Maureen Younger hosts ‘My Comedy’ first Thursday in the month at the Retro Bar in Charing Cross. This event has in the past few years been quietly celebrated amongst the LGBT London community. With nominations for Planet London awards, the noise, along with the laughter each month, is increasing.

    MC Maureen, mines rich seams of her life’s experiences to hot up the mainly gay audience of very mixed nationalities, her thought provoking barbs on life in the London cultural soup spark and provoke an audience just getting comfy with their first drink. The crowd soon pays attention as she strides the stage like a dominatrix, the audience eager to feel the wind whistle past their ears with the flick of her whip.

    These nights provide a great platform for up, coming and arrived female comedians who can explore and expound their art in a line up where they don’t have to feel like a token. The LGBT community is not adverse to mixed comedy nights but welcomes the chance to see more women on stage and at My Comedy, a fun and furious night is guaranteed with up to 6 comedians in a show. It is one that invites the audience to expose their xenophobias and ditch them in favour of a spirit of mutual curiosity and understanding. If you think LGBT sounds like a union? If you are prone, just a little – and aren’t we all – to take our politics too seriously then this is the antidote.

    My Comedy is a must see. Many more cities and town would welcome a similar platform for women, the potential audience is huge.

    Rising popularity will mean its star will soon shine too brightly for the super friendly small venue. See it soon.
