Closing Maureen Younger
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 (if only) 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 was representing the latter category!)
We all have a dream don't we. Some of us have lots. I once dreamed that Davros from Doctor Who was chasing me. Put the willies up me it did. Then I had another dream that the "Mash get Smash" men were chasing after me so I went to hide, and then my granddad turned up and told them to leave me alone (he seemed to know them somehow, probably from the adverts) but they still got me and gave me an electric shock. That was weird.
Dreams though. Aspirations. Howard had a dream; he wanted to be a rock star. He tried. He tried so, so indifferently that he never succeeded. So after many years of half arsed-ness, he had another dream and put a bit more effort in. About time. He dreamed he wanted to be a stand up comedian, so this time he did it. You don't have to learn the guitar you see.
I think the moral of this story is that no matter how much you want something, if you don't succeed, just try something else. Ideally something that doesn't involve playing a guitar because it's difficult. Trust me. And don't listen to people who say playing guitar is easy, it's not; I tried for nearly 4 weeks.
