A few weeks back I interviewed D’yan on Closet Case for theBuzz, have a peek:

The critically acclaimed solo show premiered at The Orlando Fringe Festival last May. D’yan Forest performs her unique style of stand up, regularly at the Gotham Comedy Club in NYC. She also performs her solo shows in New York, throughout the US and in Paris. Erik Kornfeld, who has written for Bette Midler and for The Rosie O’Donnel Show, directs. 

8 Decades of Music, Madness, and “Foreign Affairs.” Classy comedic “femme fatale,” D’yan Forest brings you her new show, A Broad Abroad to the New York Frigid Festival. The solo show takes you on her adventures, which began in Paris in 1955. Her comedy and songs (sung in French, Italian & German) include anecdotes about her swains throughout Europe including Italy, Austria and Jordan. She is joined by her longtime pianist Richard Danley.
