Maureen Younger: Always Younger
Maureen delves into the joys of being middle-aged and single, while reminiscing at previous faux-pas such as the time she got sacked in Germany for not epitomising a traditional Japanese woman.
Maureen also ponders why she never sees women like her on screen and in the process comes to the conclusion that some classic French films are truly awful.
If you have been lucky enough to see her perform you will be fully aware of just how funny and infectious this woman is Time Out
fantastic resident MC, Maureen Younger, is simply the life blood of the night Solihull News
