Maxine Jones


Maxine was a journalist in London before moving to Ireland in 1990. She did her first stand-up gig in a Dublin pub in 2011 and was hooked. She has since toured four Edinburgh shows, been a guest on BBC Woman's Hour and performed in the RTE Comedy Showcase and the BBC New Comedy Awards.


Her material is honest and refreshing, on living in Ireand, rearing three Irish sons and on turning 60.
