Earlier: Remember when I told y’all that this was going to be Maggie Maye’s year?
Well, the Austin standup comic is slated to perform on Conan O’Brien’s late night TBS talk show Thursday, and it’s only August.
“I found out I got it while walking my dog in my neighborhood,” says the Moontower Comedy and Fun Fun Fun Fest veteran who recently headlined at Austin’s Velveeta Room. “I just started screaming and had to quickly carry my dog home so I could call my siblings without causing a ruckus in the street.”
Messages of congratulations are filling Maye’s social media streams, and she’s overwhelmed by the support from fellow comics and Austinites.
“It’s like a dream,” she says.
Kevin Bacon will also appear on the program, so we’ve all just knocked one more degree of separation off of our connections.
Catch the hilarious Miss Maggie on “Conan” at 10 p.m. Thursday on TBS.
“Set your DVR,” Maye wrote on Facebook. “Also, teach your mom how to set her DVR.”
