Asking For It


  • Joe's Pub 425 Lafayette St New York, NY, 10003 United States

Adrienne Truscott brings her multi-award winning show Adrienne Truscott's Asking For It: A One-Lady Rape About Comedy Starring Her Pussy and Little Else! to Joe's Pub!

Dressed only from the waist up and the ankles down, she undoes and does-in the rules and rhetoric about rape and comedy and the brilliant, awful or awkward laughs when the two collide. With commentary and 'appearances' from George Carlin, Louis C. K. and Robert De Niro, she takes on ducks, pussy-puppets, mini-skirts, rape whistles, Daniel Tosh, Bill Cosby and enough gin and tonics and bad behavior to get a girl in trouble. All decorated in give-it-to-me make-up this show is light on its feet and easy on the eyes. If she's really asking for it, then we know the 'finale' for this show. Can you make jokes about rape? She plans to, all night long! Even if you tell her to stop.

"Without a doubt the most powerful hour of comedy on the Fringe." - ★★★★ The Scotsman

"Truscott is always a step ahead… with firecracker wit, sophistication and luminous humanity." - ★★★★★ Guardian (UK)
