5 Questions with Kiruna Stamell

kirunastamellWhat is your favourite swear word?
Oh, there are sooooo many. I like the big ‘C’ word but used very sparingly and not as a swear word. I have a joke I do in my stand up about my first ever gynaecological appointment and it works on so many levels in the punchline. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make an appearance in Coffee & Sheep.

What are you wearing?
A summer dress with cross straps across the back and smocked across the bust and back.

What is love?
A much quieter and stable thing than people often assume. I used to think it was passion and drama. True love is more like cuddles, hugs, kisses and great communication and trust.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
A street performance of The Iron Man with a giant Iron Man puppet by Graeae Theatre Company. 4 out of 5 stars. I love it and thought it was visually stunning and very entertaining.

Is your new show going to be any good?
Pffft, what a question. It’s a surreal romp and a giggle. Yeah, people will enjoy it, in the very least they won’t be bored. I play a sheep… sheep are cool!
