Sell Out Hit of The Sydney Festival & Perth Fringeworld Returns for A Limited Encore Season

Adrienne Truscott, one-half of the infamous Wau Wau Sisters, dressed only from the waist up and ankles down, undoes the rules and rhetoric about rape and comedy and the space in between.

The Edinburgh Festival season of Asking For It left critics and audiences alike reeling. With commentary from George Carlin, Louis C. K. and Robert De Niro, she takes on polka-dots, pussy-puppets, mini-skirts, rape whistles, Daniel Tosh, Rick Ross and enough gin and tonics and bad behavior to get a girl in trouble.

Heavy at its core, this piece is light on its feet and easy on the eye and Adrienne plans to make jokes about rape, all night long, even if you tell her to stop.

If her behaviour suggests that she’s ‘asking for it,’ then common folly dictates that we already know the ‘finale’ to this show. Confronting the audience with this possible arc, she mixes stand-up, video, nudity and some whimsical dance while undoing and doing in the rules and rhetoric about rape, comedy and the brilliant, awful (or awkward) laughs when the two collide.

Adrienne Truscott is a choreographer, circus acrobat, dancer, writer and as of late, comedian. She has been making genre-straddling work in New York City and abroad for over 15 years and has performed at the Brisbane Festival, Edinburgh, Adelaide, Melbourne Comedy, Brighton and Perth Fringe Festivals, as well as the Sydney Opera House, and many other iconic venues. She has worked with cult cabaret legends Kiki and Herb, Meow Meow, and John Cameron Mitchell (Shortbus).
