Never Been 61 Before

Maxine Jones

In Eastern tradition, 61 is regarded as the beginning of a new life cycle. With sons gone and job gone, Maxine suspects that it is – especially when she develops surprising new skills.

One of Ireland’s first immigrants and first divorcees, she sheds the past, races into the future, aims for success and dares to fail. Maxine is a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe and has featured on BBC Woman’s Hour, BBC New Comedy Awards, and RTE Comedy Showcase.

‘Knocks it out of the park. This is no Old Biddy poking fun at herself, Maxine’s humour pushes the audience to the edge of their comfort zone, with some hard-hitting jokes on religion, identity and politics.
