Made in 2013, Adrienne Truscott’s Asking For It: A One-Lady Rape About Comedy Starring Her Pussy and Little Else! changed the rules of what comedy looks like and says and how we ‘joke’ about rape – putting #rapejokes full-frontal and center. “Wearing a blonde wig and denim jacket—and nothing else until you get to the shoes—Truscott confronted the rape joke genre, turning it on its head and ripping it apart until there was nothing left that was worth saying by anyone else.” -Vice Magazine. Come see the #OG of feminist #rapejokes. ONE NIGHT ONLY at the Bard Spiegeltent.
‘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)
‘An exhilarating hour… Firecracker wit, sophistication and luminous humanity…Truscott is always a step ahead.’ ★★★★★Guardian
