I’m excited to announce that I am preparing a brand new solo show opening this spring in NYC. Some of you may not know that I have a bunch of learning disabilities and started Early Intervention at 8 months old. This continued through elementary school, middle school and High School. Special Services, extra help, professional evaluations, reports, IEP’s and some poking and prodding. When I graduated HS, my parents handed me boxes full of every single report and evaluation I had. 17 years of documents. So I wrote a show about it. It’s called MARVE, a one Maeve show. It’s a show about unboxing yourself and figuring out who you are after reading a thousand pages about who people think you are.
To gather support for my show, I created a page on Indiegogo. Please visit my page for more info, fun facts, videos, and perks. Yes perks. Any support you can offer to MARVE, a one Maeve show would be amazing. Any amount, even nothing, just visit my page and pass the link along to a friend and I’m forever grateful.
Maeve Press can be seen as a series regular in Freeform/HULU show Everything’s Gonna Be Okay. Rolling Stone described her performance as some of, “…The best and most natural kid performances in recent TV memory.”
She was the youngest comedian ever to perform at Boston’s Women in Comedy Festival and NJ’s Hoboken Comedy Festival. She was named a “Best of Fest” at the Burbank Comedy Festival. Maeve began her career in NYC theater and made her Off-Broadway debut at the iconic Public Theatre in the critically acclaimed play Before Your Very Eyes written by the Gob Squad. Maeve also starred in the Orlando Film Festival and Amsterdam Film Festival Award-winning indie film Theresa Is a Mother. Maeve co-wrote and starred in the the JUST FOR LAUGHS award-winning short Too Many Buddhas with Maria Bamford, was featured in the popular PSA Why Can’t Girls Code, and profiled on NPR’s Here & Now. She has performed in clubs, bars, abandoned storefronts, and basements throughout NYC, Boston, LA, and more.
