Award-winning comedian Diane Spencer's sixth hour-long stand-up show is based on her real life experiences of 2014, when she was trying to find/make a dream house, despite being unable to afford it, and being absolutely crap at DIY. She also got a surprise phone call from a media celebrity asking to write a biographical play to produce at the Fringe, and this show covers the good, bad and weird things that happened along the way. Diane's story unfolds with her typical charm, sparkling wit and dark humour. 'Enthralling storytelling ability' ***** (EdFestMag.com).

Full press release
In 2014 award-winning comedian Diane Spencer wanted to earn enough money to get on the housing ladder and she met a media celebrity who wanted a writer to create a fringe show. Their paths met, their opinions collided.
This is the story of possibly one of the strangest years in Diane's life, dealing with hazardous estate agents, language barriers and airplane turbulence in trying to achieve that dream of a place to call home.
In 2013, Diane wrote Hurricane Diane (performed at the Gilded Balloon) which received 4 x 5 star reviews at the Edinburgh fringe festival, revealing how Diane had met the love of her life, despite being a natural disaster. Power Tool follows on from that, revealing details from Diane's life story, told in her inimitable, hilarious and honest style.
Diane Spencer won the Chortle Best Newcomer 2011 and was The New Current's Woman of the Year in 2013. She has written 5 stand-up hour long shows, achieving critical acclaim and recognition for her edgy storytelling and charm.
