Flame haired comedian is a striking presence. She makes an impression as soon as she hits the stage. And then she opens her set striving to make a bad taste impression. I think it is safe to say that in certain quarters of the audience she achieved her goal there and then.
But does it stop there? Hell no! Her goal is to be universally accepted as having bad taste. Masturbation, body piercing, bad taste parties, baby sitting exploits and all things ginger are subjects that get the Spencer attention, but special mention for her ability to ‘time jump’ with the aid of alcohol is probably the strongest part of her set.
I think Diane is definitely a comedian that can divide a room, some will absolutely love her stuff, others will be less enamoured, but she definitely is a presence and one that shouldn’t be ignored.
