Diane Spencer interview
Flame-haired, award-winning comedian, Diane Spencer, shares a few words with Something You Said:
I just wanted to find out if I was funny. And no it certainly wasn’t, but once I did it the first time, I simply had to do it again, and again and here I am. Stand-up is something so different and instantaneous. When you listen to how a comedian – a really amazing comedian – talks, it’s incredible. They take your mind into new places.After Edinburgh, what else have you got planned for 2011?
Whatever writing projects emerge from the Edinburgh Fringe really. I’m going to a comedy festival in Denmark, a place called Arhaus, which I’ve never been to before.
Longer term, what artistic aspirations do you have?
I love science fiction, I’m currently working to write a sci-fi sitcom… watch this space for beehives and lasers.
What music will you be listening to on the journey to and from Edinburgh?
John Williams – 40 years.
It’s outstanding, it includes Indiana Jones, Superman and Jurassic Park.
