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.

Unbelievably Jen Brister and I have finally got our act together and recorded yet another podcast and this time the theme is friendship https://soundcloud.com/jen-bris…/maureen-jen-talk-friendship. So if you want to know how we met (TBH I can't remember), why we have so few friends and just how gender fluid Maureen is... (not very as it turns out), this is for you!
