Irish Book Awards

Maeve Higgins

Maeve Higgins is a writer and comedian. Originally from Cobh, she now lives in New York City with an unknown number of feisty cockroaches. Together, they’re all trying to make it in show-biz! A star in Ireland with two TV shows and a critically acclaimed book of essays, We Have A Good Time, Don’t We?, under her little belt, Maeve is making her mark on the American comedy scene, winning hearts and laughs with appearances on stage and TV, including Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer and National Geographic Channel’s Startalk. Maeve says ‘yikes!’ a lot and always means it.
