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

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
