Maureen Langan is an internationally acclaimed standup comedian who has performed at festivals in the U.S., Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Switzerland and South Africa. Her intelligent and hysterical rants on life’s absurdities make her a hit at clubs, theaters, and corporate events.…a perfect addition to your lineup.   

She’s an award-winning comedian who has performed on Broadway with Rosie O’Donnell, opened for Steven Wright, Joy Behar, and Gladys Knight — and has roasted comedy royalty Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara. Her on-screen appearances include Gotham Live, HBO, Red Eye, Comics Unleashed, the Paramount Pictures film Marci X, and many national commercials. 

For seven years Maureen hosted Hangin’ with Langan, a weekly, live talk show on KGO Radio in San Francisco. The audiences loved her; they program directors had no idea who she was and referred to her as “that lady on the weekend.”
