“engaging and funny” (Three Weeks)
”One of the most naturally talented comedians I have worked with, brilliant timing, warm and funny”. (Sally Holloway)
"On a strong recommendation from another promoter I booked Maureen unseen to headline my Retort Cabaret show. She didn't let me down, and a previously cool audience immediately warmed to her conversational style. One of the other acts booked her after the show to compere their gig the following week and I too have re-booked her to compere another show in the autumn. I've since seen her at a much larger gig at Birmingham Glee Club and she was equally funny and comfortable on a big stage." (BrettRehling, Retort Cabaret Show, Birmingham)
"A week of roaming about the Festival.. but aside from the big names, there's a lot of talent out there. One comedienne in particular has stood head and shoulders talent-wise above the others again and again: Maureen Younger, with her peach of a delivery...”( MGCK)
“Maureen Younger, New Act of The Year contestant whose sharp self effacing humour brings interesting new perspectives to the stage” (Hackney Empire)
“I felt like I'd learnt something as well as being entertained by comedians Paul MacCaffrey, Gavin Hammer and especially Maureen Younger." (Alexis Wood - BBC Southern Counties Website)
“Maureen Younger….a comic insight that can open up a need to laugh out loud, even if you didn’t want to...” (Roland Muldoon, Cock Tavern, Hackney Empire NATY Competition)
"Fast feisty & more than a little dangerous she has a set packed with great one liners yet perhaps her greatest strength is ad-libbing with an audience.” Jack Milner (one of UK's foremost comedy coaches)
“Younger’s fabulous act ….alone makes this (Pretty Dirty Things) a worthwhile stop for that all-important first week nightcap.” (Richard Cray)
“Maureen Younger manages to make fun of women's predicaments without being derogative - she makes comedy look effortless, not an easy task, she is rare in this world of overpowering male stand ups; a naturally funny post pc feminist with a unique sense of personal observational humour. She is immediate & down to earth; a Ms funny brains”. (Claire Muldoon, Cock Tavern, Hackney Empire NATY Competition)
