A lively, hilarious romp through theatre life with Ireland's favourite entertainer - Maureen Potter
Tommy lives an adventurous life, full of variety and fun. He gets entangled in events both onstage and offstage. He even co-stars in the show!

MAUREEN POTTER, one of Ireland’s best-loved stars, and known to many as the Queen of Comedy, died in April 2004, aged 79. She had a lifelong relationship with the Gaiety Theatre, beginning in 1939, and she is best remembered for her comedy in numerous pantomimes, variety shows and the hugely popular summer revue, Gaels of Laughter.

Not only can she entertain in pantomime, she can also tell a good story.

Evening Herald

Manages to convey the magic of theatre and the spirit of Maureen all at once.

The Sunday Press

Full of warmth and oozing with character, Maureen Potter has followed advice given to so many aspiring writers 'write about something you know'. Through the eyes of Tommy she has written about the magical backstage life of the theatre that readers young and old will find fascinating. David Rooney's black-and-white scraperboard-style illustrations are as atmospheric as the text.
