Review: Diane Spence unleashed a "tsunami of filth"

Diane Spencer brought tales of "the human experience" last night. "It just happens to be a disgusting one," said the X-rated raconteur, who seems to have 'experienced' mainly heavy drinking and kinky sex.

Unleashing a torrent of scatologically-based storytelling, Spencer certainly lived up to the festival programme's promise of "a tsunami of filth".

One audience member collapsed in fits of giggles every few minutes, gasping incredulously: "It's so outrageous!"

Spencer's schtick is that she's a Disney princess with a potty mouth. But when the shocked laughter had died down, we weren't left with much of substance to take home.

Spencer clearly is a talented writer, but the repeated recourse to smut for its own sake became numbing.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

You must be decisive. Don't leave your Fate in the hands of others. If you need more money, ask for a raise. Are you dissatisfied with a relationship? Issue an ultimatum. Are you perturbed by an ethical matter? Speak on behalf of justice. People will be uncomfortable with your dramatic behaviour, but they will respond to it. Waiting for a miracle to arrive simply isn't wise. When you want to make a change, you have to take action, even at the risk of being unpopular.More
