One Trick Pony

A One-Trick Pony (Or Andy Kaufman Is A Feminist Performance Artist and I'm A Comedian)

Comedy isn't for pussies, so Truscott’s throwing hers back in the ring! Your #1 Gimmicky-Pantsless-Performance Artist Turned Comedian wrestles with standing up while telling jokes, ‘second shows’, stealing material, categorization and bad reviews. All while paying homage to her favorite (dead?!) 'comedian'. The Australian Times says, 'A feminist masterpiece disguised behind dick-jokes and partial nudity. It’s brilliant!' 4.5 stars. Chortle gives it 2 stars and says a definitive ‘Whatever’. 
How do you respond to reviews? How does a stage define who or what you are? What do you do for a 'second show'? Wrestle.

‘Nutty comic genius.’ West Australian  ****
