International Comedy Festival

Coming soon

Who is Maeve Higgins - and what is her show about?

Lisa Richards Agency Presents:

Maeve Higgins "Kitten Brides"

Irish TV star's highly anticipated NZ debut

Maeve Higgins is delighted to be a professional stand up comedian. This is her first trip to New Zealand so she has thought carefully about her show.  In the end, just the funnies stayed.  She will miss her pets and her friends in Dublin.  That 's a fair price to pay though because she loves traveling and performing at festivals.

"Charming and iconoclastic Irish stand-up" - The Age, Melbourne 2008

In keeping with her low key style, 'Kitten Brides' sees Maeve talking about a range of subjects in a non show-offy way.  The sort of things likely to come up include the feelings you get being on your own in new places, the sound of forced rhubarb, and taxidermy in Victorian times.

"Clever and humane comedy" - The Event Guide, Dublin

Through informal research, she has figured out who will get maximum enjoyment from her show.  If you enjoy cycling, confectionary and chat parties, you are one of those people.  Phew!

"Maeve Higgins is here to demonstrate how to do irish charm.  She's not daft, she doesn't lay it on with a trowel, dimpling and twinkling away, hers is probably the most natural and uncontrived performance you could wish for". - Chortle, 2007
