A TV star in her native Ireland, 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. Maeve also makes great radio and is currently hosting a podcast about immigration called ‘Maeve In America’ for First Look Media. Maeve says ‘yikes’ a lot and her favorite food is peanut butter.
