Episode 24 - Maeve Higgins
If you've been following us here or there but not listening. this is a GREAT one to start with. Just trust us on this.
Maeve Higgins has performed all over the world, including in Edinburgh, Melbourne and, most recently, Erbil. Now based in New York, she’s made a name for herself there too. In a good way! She co-hosts Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk on National Geographic and has appeared in Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer. Maeve hosts a live show every month with author Jon Ronson and is a frequent guest at the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. She is writing a book of funny essays for Penguin, due for publication in late 2017 (or perhaps a bit later). Maeve also makes great radio and is currently hosting a terrific(!) podcast about immigration called ‘Maeve In America’ for First Look Media. You can find out more about all that stuff at maevehiggins.com
She'll also be performing at the Shea Theater in Turners Falls, MA (where this podcast just so happens to be based) on February 9th. For info and tickets (which are going FAST), see sheatheater.org.
