I’m at Triskel Arts Centre as part of Cork World Book Festival today. I’m interviewing stand up comic Maeve Higgins who has just been in ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ in the States. Come along if you’re about – she’s hilarious.
Comedienne Maeve Higgins – in conversation with Belfast writer Paul McVeigh.
Cork native Maeve Higgins’ book Off you go – Away from home and loving it. Sort of. charts her move to the Big Apple. She will discuss the move, the book, and everything else besides with writer Paul McVeigh who is himself no stranger to comedy and whose book The Good Son was launched at the Festival in 2015.
Maeve Higgins used to think she’d live in Ireland forever. Then the stunning and humble comedienne switched to almonds, gave away all of her possessions and left Ireland with just a carry-on bag filled to the brim with a positive attitude. New York has been kind to our Celtic princess and she’s ready to return the favour, by making friends with as many weirdos as possible and writing about it.
Venue: Triskel Arts Centre.
Date: Saturday 23 April.Time: 4:00pm
