Maureen is frank, fast, feisty, sharp and engaging – honest humour with attitude!  According to Time Out Berlin: If you have been lucky enough to see her perform you will be fully aware of just how funny and infectious this women is. Maureen works as a stand up comedian and compere all around the UK and abroad. 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, urban and gay comedy circuits.
