Adrienne Truscott is talented, edgy and out there. Her show Asking for it has gained critical acclaim around the world and after seeing it last year at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, I know why! Adrienne is spectacular in her groundbreaking show confronting the comedy industry about it’s laid back attitude to the topic of rape.
It’s incredible how Adrienne is able to poke fun at other comics, make witty jokes whilst discussing an incredibly important issue. This show will make you laugh, think and gasp. Yes…there is nudity… yes it’s full on.. but most of all, it’s clever and truly artistic. It’s a show you shouldn’t miss Sydney and I cannot wait to go and see it again.
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.
