Adrienne Truscott's Asking For It: A One-Lady Rape About Comedy Starring Her P*ssy and Little Else!
Fisher Center, Spiegeltent
8:30 pm
“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)
 
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. Heavy at its core but light on its feet, Truscott’s stand-up routine about a hideous subject has won awards around the world. In the words of The Guardian, "It's so exhilarating to see the ugliness of rape discourse taken on, and bested, not with humourlessness or censoriousness, but with firecracker wit, sophistication and luminous humanity.”

STRICTLY ADULTS ONLY.  CONTAINS NUDITY.
