Adrienne Truscott's Asking For It Returns to Joe's Pub!

Same amazing venue. Same reasonable time!

I keep being amazed at how relevant this show remains, never more so in the face of the pussy-grabbing, mind-boggling regime of the Trump Administration. This show updates with appalling ease! What a conundrum! It's a goldmine for a comedian and a horror for a woman!

Don't worry folks, I still know how to keep it light, hit hard and give you the release and catharsis you deserve. Come out and support one of the most vibrant venues in the city!

And now, to the best of my personal finance ability, I donate half of the box office of any performance of this show to Planned Parenthood. 

Tickets go on sale April 9th.

Adrienne Truscott has made THIS.

ADELAIDE FRINGE 2017 ARTIST AMBASSADOR ADRIENNE TRUSCOTT presents a new work in progress at alternative Fringe venue Tuxedo Cat!

THIS is a solo performance which may not always be a solo.

THIS is a small or large or medium act of artistic survivalism and a morphing piece that writes, in real time, the libretto of the performance the artist is attempting to do which changes with each performance to reflect the new context brought by the evening at hand.

THIS is a run-on sentence.

THIS is a grift.

THIS is a piece of cake.

Back By Popular Demand! One-Might Only in The Garden of Unearthly Delights!

Half of the proceeds of this updated and newly, excruciatingly relevant show (Trump anyone?) will go to a local rape crisis center.

Please join me for this special and crucial evening.

Perth FringeWorld! The Wau Wau Sisters - Backwards and in Heels

The Wau Wau Sisters Return to Perth!!

The Wau Wau Sisters hit the stage as you love them -BACKWARDS as hell and always in HEELS! Join the sisters for high hijinks and the lowdown on life as a Wau Wau. Born but not necessarily 'raised', The Wau Wau Sisters take you through their famed 'songbook' while swigging cocktails and delivering cock tales that must be heard to be believed! If, as the famous quote says, Ginger Rodgers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in heels, well, The Wau Wau Sisters were born BACKWARDS, wouldn't consider any other footwear than HEELS and have just done EVERYTHING! Come have a few and find out what they've gotten away with and how they've (literally) lived to tell you about it!

Perth FringeWorld! Asking For It! 3 Nights Only

Adrienne Truscott's Asking For It: A One-Lady Rape About Comedy Starring Her Pussy and Little Else! Returns to Perth by popular demand!

Updated to move with the times, it’s the same award winning show that played to sold out houses here in 2015, but updated to move with the times! Cue Cosby, Brock Turner, Trump and god knows who else will come up by curtains! With commentary from George Carlin, Louis C. K. and Robert DeNiro, 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.

David's Friend by Nora Burns at La Mama Theater, NYC>

This stunning, hilarious and intimate show about a friendship that is a love affair between a straight woman and a gay man at the giddy height of NYC nightlife and the foggy confusion of the height of the AIDS crisis. 

I have had the honor of directing this story, lived, written and performed by Nora Burns, with gorgeous comic rimshot by Billy Hough (Scream Along with Billy). It's selling out and has extended another weekend! Don't miss it. Another show that is surprisingly prescient in these new political times we're trying to figure out.

Times vary night to night. Shows at 10:00, 7:30 depending. Last Sunday performance is at 2 pm.

It received this stunning review in the New York Times.

A hand-picked lineup of irreverent performances, sexy solidarity and kinky outrage to raise funds for the Lady Parts Justice League.

More on our performers:
- Dayna Kurtz: angry depressed Jewess who writes spiritual drinking hymns for atheists. 
- Sxip Shirey: international composer and performer, reluctantly brings back his infamous tampon applicator musical act, for just this ONE performance
- Adrienne Truscott: choreographer, dancer and stand-up comedian, formerly half of the vaudeville duo the Wau Wau Sisters, and now gaining international acclaim for her bold one-woman show "Asking For It: A One Lady Rape About Comedy."
- Nora Burns: writer, performer, fag hag, and one third of wildly twisted and brilliantly outspoken comedy trio Unitard.
- Mamie Minch: luthier and multi instrumentalist, and badass Amazonian motherfucker.
- Pussy Grabs Back: a mobile, femme powered, anti-Trump brass band, bringing music to streets to protest this new regime's dangerous fascist agenda. They're gonna make this revolution danceable. 
- Abby Hertz: performance artist who's going to "Paint It Black" live on stage...and by "it" we mean her vagina.
- Sweet Tits: the "lesbian Spinal Tap" rawk-n-roll band taking NYC's gay/queer scene by storm. 
- Tiny D: in-your-face feminist burlesque dancer.
- Mistress Couple: dominatrix with a sub-specialty in political humiliation and Headmistress of La Domaine Esemar training chateau, will do unspeakable things to a willing victim in a Trump mask for our cathartic pleasure.

Plus a special set from comedian Lizz Winstead, founder of Lady Parts Justice League, co-creator and former head writer and correspondent of The Daily Show, and co-founder of Air America Radio, where she co-hosted Unfiltered, with Hip Hop legend, Chuck D and political big brain Rachel Maddow.

More on Lady Parts Justice League:
The Lady Parts Justice League is a coven of hilarious badass feminists who use humor and pop culture to expose the haters trying to destroy reproductive access. We believe if there is not laughter, dancing and sexy time in your revolution, you need to fix that. The LPJL wants to lead by example showing fighting for equality is a way of life, not just a reaction to crisis, and we are connecting artists and activists around the country to help make that happen.

In celebration of the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we invite you to party with a purpose! 
All proceeds from this event will benefit the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH).

Both of these freedoms could be at great risk in the coming years, so it is time to support those organizations working on the ground now, more than ever! Let's work together to do something positive in response to the inauguration.

Miss Behave's Gameshow at Southbank!

MY GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW!!! I'm doing a 'number' on Sept. 12 & 19th! It's exactly the celebratory anarchy we all need right now!


10:30 am10:30


I am putting together a crowd-sourced tour of updated Asking For It to the towns of high profile convicted rapists who have received overly-lenienct sentencing and then perhaps avoided it altogether. These shows will also highlight how race, economics and social status are reflected in sentencing. 

I will pay myself a small percentage/stipend for my time and seek out which local organization to donate the rest to. We aren't ready to launch yet, but soon a link to a crowdsourcing organization will be here and I will seek out local help to secure venues and accommodation.

Fist stop, Oakland/Dayton, OH. #BrockTurner

Followed by Boulder, CO, Nashville, TN....accepting suggestions and research.
