    Kampnagel – P1

Adrienne Truscott, one-half of the infamous Wau Wau Sisters, dressed only from the waist up and the ankles down, undresses and dresses down 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. 

»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)
»Truscott is always a step ahead… with firecracker wit, sophistication and luminous humanity.« GUARDIAN (UK)
»I’d heard rumors of the audacity and excellence of Ms. Truscott’s ASKING FOR IT in the midst of the performance festivals that crowd New York each January […] Those rumors are true« Alexis Soloski – THE NEW YORK TIMES
