Here we are! It’s time for our regular weekly showcase of a super funny and talented comedy person that you should know about! This week’s human is Maeve Higgins, appearing at the Bentzen Ball this weekend, as a part of You’re The Expert Live at the Grosvenor Auditorium on October 27! Maeve co-stars on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Star Talk on National Geographic, has appeared on Inside Amy Schumer and is the host and creator of the very good podcast Maeve In America: Immigration IRL. Here’s her appearance in a very goofy sketch on Inside Amy Schumer.
Here’s Maeve talking about her experiences with catcalling in NYC on Ireland’s version of The Late Late Show. Catcalling sucks but she makes it funny!
Maeve’s got a sensibility perfect for the bookish, writerly comedy folks at Prairie Home Companion, so of course she’d absolutely crush there! Watch!
Our new friend Maeve is absolutely a person you should be following on Twitter. Here are some gems culled from her high quality feed.

A guy in my elevator asked me which apartment I lived in and I didn't feel like saying so I made it up and it turns out that's his apartment

Before we part ways, let’s watch an episode of Maeve’s TV show aired back in Ireland, Maeve Higgins’ Fancy Vittles! It’s very good and charming.
