D’yan Forest: Swinging on the Seine After Dark
Comedienne, cabaret artist, and living legend D'yan Forest (currently Guinness World Records Title Holder for Oldest Female Comedian in the World) returns to Joe’s Pub after celebrating her 88th birthday last year by performing her hit show to a sold-out crowd.
D’yan has always been ahead of her time. In 1963 she moved to Paris as a young, innocent, recently divorced Bostonian looking to make it big in the Parisian cabaret scene. Immersing herself in the glitz, glamour, and scandalous nightlife of the era, the naive D’yan was transported from a sheltered suburban existence to a life filled with underground sex clubs and the swinger’s scene. A coming-of-age story like you have never seen it. Critics have called her everything from "saucy," "witty," "irrepressible," and a "naughty version of Betty White."
D’yan recently performed on "The Drew Barrymore Show", and has been featured in The New York Times, Time Out NY, New York Post, and "France’s Got Talent".
Swinging on the Seine was written by D’yan Forest, Eric Kornfeld, and Stephen Clarke (bestselling author of A Year in the Merde). D’yan Forest has performed all over the world with notable performances in New York, Paris, Edinburgh and even Ethiopia. If there’s a stage, chances are she’s been on it.
