Asking For It
"Truscott is always a step ahead… with firecracker wit, sophistication and luminous humanity."
★★★★★ Guardian (UK)
"A brilliantly bold and thoroughly engaging provocation."
★★★★ The Times (UK)
"Brutal, brilliant and brave...if you miss it you will miss the moment in the history of stand-up comedy wherein a woman actually took the genre and did something with it that no man could do... This is without doubt the most powerful hour of comedy."
★★★★ The Scotsman (UK)
"Pantless and breathless, Truscott bares her body and soul in an event that straddles the gap between performance art and comedy show. Every studied line or scenario that comes out of her mouth can be reconsidered, reinterpreted and thought about for hours. Truscott is confrontational, needling and hard-hitting, while remaining stiletto-sharp and biting."
★★★★ The List (Edinburgh)
ASKING FOR IT: A ONE-LADY RAPE ABOUT COMEDY STARRING HER PUSSY AND LITTLE ELSE!
Adrienne Truscott, one-half of the infamous Wau Wau Sisters, dressed only from the waist up and ankles down, undoes and does in the rules and rhetoric about rape, comedy and the awkward laughs in between.
With commentary from George Carlin, Louis C. K. and Robert De Niro, ducks, whistles and enough gin and tonics to get a girl in trouble, she lets her pussy do the talking. Set to pop music. Can you make jokes about rape? She plans to, all night long. Even if you tell her to stop.
