Out of Sync
Growing up in a de facto Scottish enclave in north London; Maureen Younger was not just the only Scottish girl at school, she was about the only white girl too. As a result, Maureen has always felt out of sync with the rest of the world.
As a comedian, Maureen now finds herself performing regularly on the urban comedy circuit and has acquired a considerable fan base on the gay circuit despite being white and straight. She’s multi-lingual, middle-aged (well, shall we say 38…) and happy to be single. What do you do when you don’t fit in? Refuse to conform and don’t care!
Out of Sync is Maureen’s new show in which she shares her stories of being at odds with the world and celebrates being unapologetically true to yourself.
Maureen Younger has been performing stand-up for over 15 years; she runs regular comedy nights in central London and Birmingham, and performs at gigs across the country. In 2016, she supported The Naked Magicians for their entire West End run at the Trafalgar Studios in London and has several acting credits including playing an angry German housewife (what else?) in HBO’s Band of Brothers.
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 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 is also the resident MC of MY Comedy in London and Birmingham, and has worked as a contributor on BBC Radio and Sky News. 'Maureen Younger is more than compere, more than host, with a natural gift of the gab she's quick off the mark and doesn't miss a trick!' (www.gingerbeer.co.uk) '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) “one of the best MCs in the country” (Jo Enright) '... whose punch lines also hit the mark in German' (Cologne Rundschau) 'Engaging and funny' (Three Weeks).
