Maureen Younger

Although she resides in London, Maureen's been very much a part of Birmingham's rich and diverse comedy scene for many years - thanks to her renowned MY Comedy nights. Based at the Kitchen Garden Cafe, in Kings Heath, they feature all-female line-ups. Among the many guests have been Zoe Lyons, Shazia Mirza, Mrs Barbara Nice, Karen Bayley, Rosie Wilby, Jo Enright and some of the best up-and-coming new female acts from across the region. When not performing live, Maureen can often be heard nattering online with pal Jen Brister.

Daz Hale
- this episode is now available to stream on-demand via MixCloud.
Daz has been a familiar voice on local radio for many years, regularly hosting popular shows and airing reports across BBCWM. Graduating to BBCWM's Breakfast Show in 2019, he's been praised by listeners for his work during lockdown and the pandemic. Known for his quick wit and humour, Daz's been a long-time supporter of the city's comedy festival, going as far as joining the Breaking Talent Award's judging panel. And when it comes to a good gag - he's on the mark!
