Maxine’s three sons are horrified when she starts stand-up. She is forced to lie. They think she’s in Lidl. Maxine left London for Dublin in 1990, married an Irishman, became the first divorcee, reared three rowdy sons and discovered how English she was. Maxine has featured on BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour and RTE’s Arena. Embarrassing Mother has played to full houses in Dublin and Edinburgh.
