Grainne Macguire: LEAVE DAVID MILLABAND ALONE
“I mean it!!”
As a stand up comedian Gráinne Maguire is a breath of fresh air; original, inventive with a subversive twist.
Her deep reserves of excitable energy, along with material about the Bronte sisters, reclaiming big bellies for the sisterhood and fancying Ed Milliband make her a unique new voice in comedy.
As a writer she is witty, incisive and thoughtful. Gráinne wrote a weekly satirical celeb column in national newspaper, The Irish World, and has also had articles published in The Evening Standard. She was nominated for National Student Colour Writer of the Year in 2002.
She is an excellent topical joke writer, combining a political nerd’s knowledge of current affairs with an encyclopaedic knowledge of Cheryl Coles’ love life.
Gráinne has several Radio comedy scripts and a satirical TV format in development.
