Actor and comedian Michelle de Swarte and roast lamb with lemon chickpeas

Listen on

Episode notes

This week Michelle de Swarte brings lots of laughter to the table at Dish HQ.

Our guest is multi-talented! At 19 she swapped South London for the catwalks of NYC. Struggling to find her voice, Michelle left modelling for journalism and began making documentary films with icon and activist Gloria Steinem. Next, she gave stand-up comedy a shot which led her to Katherine Ryan, who she supported on tour and starred alongside on Netflix (The Duchess). In what is only her second acting job, Michelle plays ‘Natasha’ in comedy horror The Baby on Sky Atlantic now.

Angela treats Michelle’s taste buds to some succulent roast lamb with lemon chickpeas paired with a fabulous fleurie. Expect funnies about fashion, microwave meals and what starring opposite a baby has taught her.

Just so you know, our podcast might contain the occasional mild swear word or adult theme.

We can’t all have a Michelin star chef in the kitchen, but you can ask Angela for help.
