Maeve Higgins: STOP THE LIGHTS!
This lady is a comedian from rural Ireland but for one night only she has modified her homegrown stories to be of relevance to New Yorkers. A sample sentence will now be â€˜Once I saw a lady with red hair making butterâ€¦on the 6 Train!â€™ Thatâ€™s not strictly true but sheâ€™s just so excited about the show â€“ who knows what will happen? One thing is certain, this December 3rd at the UCB theatre Maeve will present to you an hour of low key and beautifully crafted stand up comedy that is sure to wow youâ€¦ if youâ€™re into that kind of thing.
Maeve was a principal writer and actor in 'Naked Camera,' a popular hidden camera show that ran for three series, broadcast on RTE 2005-2007. Her latest TV series, which she wrote and stars in, is called 'Fancy Vittles' and was broadcast on RTE in Sept/October 2009.
"She is original and relatively calm, her observations are pithy, her wit delicate, her persona oddly alluring and deftly honest."
--The Irish Times, 2009
"The wonderful Maeve Higgins talks with apparent artlessnessâ€¦an artlessness that disguises art."
