Astrid Whettnall
My name is Astrid Whettnall, I am a comedian. Clearly, yes. The directors; the directors with whom I work are evidently people who have a message. They have something to say, which interests me greatly and I hope it would interest the public. I need, of course, to be inspired, to nourish myself, to learn; and what we do today has a real political value, at least in creation. On a small scale, but nonetheless.

I'M TOUCHED BECAUSE I THINK ONE OF THE FIRST PIECES I BOUGHT AS A YOUG WOMAN WAS A SLEEVELESS BLAZER, WITH A BLACK BELT. I CAME TO PARIS ON VACATION, IT WAS A REAL INVESTMENT. TO ME WHEN WE HAVE A BARBARA BUI GARMENT ON US, AS A WOMAN OR MAYBE EVEN A MAN, IT GIVES ALL THE POWER TO OUR FEMININITY.  IT GROUNDS ME AND I FEEL LIKE MYSELF ; BUT IN ALL MY POWER AND GLORY.

"ASTRID REPRESENTS THIS WOMAN OF CHARACTER TO WHOM I ADDRESS. SHE HAS THIS NATURAL ELEGANCE THAT I LIKE."
