“Diane O’Connor’s show took feminine issues often derided, often tough to tackle, and spun them into hilarious nonconfrontational set pieces. Her comedy style is simultaneously informative, sarcastic, smart, and heart-warming. The universality of being human is what lies at the forefront of her work – knowing her worth, while being able to laugh at it”
– Clara Rose Thornton RTE “Arena” and The Irish Times Women’s Podcast broadcaster
“Diane was engaging and fearless…using her comedy to shed light on topical issue of breastfeeding that has divided people. Fearless, because after the routine was finished….she opened up a dialogue with the audience. Letting them ask questions about her experience with breastfeeding. Rewarding & informative…she had the audience in her hand.”

“It was empowering as a woman to see the subject matter confronted so directly, and with a great deal of humour”
