Friday Funny: Fancy Vittles with Maeve Higgins

Maeve Higgins is a very funny lady from Cork (where I’m from) who kept me company in autumn 2009 with her hilarious sketch show/cookery program/archival footage clips, Fancy Vittles, while I was living by the seaside and making do with three fuzzy channels. Watch in the clip above as Maeve chops vegetables with her sister while simultaneously relating to us the story of a shock break-up.

Fun fact: I have been told several times that I sound like her, including during the one time I was on the radio and someone sent in a text message saying that I had ‘a lovely smiley voice like Maeve Higgins’. Indeed. I’m pretty sure this is because to outsiders everyone from Cork sounds the same.

(You can listen to my radio interview and judge for yourself, if you are so inclined.)

    Hahaha, that was hilarious…I love her denial/avoidance. She does sound a bit like you, I think it’s more pronounced in certain words.

Ah, go on. Tell me what you think...
