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).

Whoever it was who decided that Americans don't have any sense of irony, they forgot to tell Dave Fulton. This wry Seattle wag is positively brimming over with ironic invective. With his stringy beard, straggly long hair and rock 'n' roll black leather jacket, Fulton looks more like a refugee from a defunct British heavy metal band than an all-American stand-up... there's a salty flavour to his live club set that you'd scarcely describe as feminist. It's these contradictions that make Fulton so fascinating, and fun to watch, especially when he's riffing with British punters half a world away from home. (The Guide). "It's only comics with something to say that cross the Atlantic." The Guardian "Fulton is left as a sole crusader for US topical comedy." The List
