Adrienne Truscott’s (Still) Asking For It
About (Still) Asking For It
Adrienne Truscott’s (Still) Asking For It (A Stand-Up Rape About Comedy Starring Her Pussy and Little Else!) is a sex-positive, seriously funny, unflinching and nuanced show about rape culture. Its first iteration, performed in 2013, was a ribald provocation that came for everyone: comedians, rapists, lazy rape-apologists, and the ding-a-ling chodes who think women aren’t funny.
Dressed only from the waist up and the ankles down, “brilliantly bold” (Times UK) creator Adrienne Truscott will be joined onstage by cast members Shamika Cotton (The Wire), Jenn Kidwell (Underground Railroad Game), and Mari Moriarty (Jet of Blood). The run will also feature different special guests - comedians, sexual assault survivors, anti-harassment allies and more - at each performance. Those guests include Mariam Bazeed, Becca Blackwell, Carolyn Castiglia, Kerry Coddett, Amanda Duarte, Ophira Eisenberg, Negin Farsad, Martha Graham Cracker (aka Dito Van Reigersberg), Marisela Grajeda Gonzalez, Jenn Harris, Jeff Hiller, Krishna Istha, Nikole Marone, Aparna Nancherla, Gus Solomons jr, Dane Terry, Neruda Williams, Angel Yau, and more to be announced.
