Attracted to transgression, and an avid writer of dirty jokes, we explore whether very funny Diane Spencer has been overlooked for being too filthy. Prizing structure and organisation, her usually ferocious output hiccupped when she was traumatised by the loss of live work during the pandemic. Back in the saddle now, we talk about focusing on YouTube as an audience-builder, being told “we’ve already got one like you”, and how to be your own agent. But are there really “lots of reasons for people to hate her”?
20 mins of extra content available exclusively to the Insiders Club includes Diane on whether she’s always been so mentally robust; how she coped with being booed offstage; and how she feels when contributions from her comedian husband Kevin Shepherd get laughs…
Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much more, including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, James Acaster and Fern Brady and the incredible “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet.
