“This is without doubt the most powerful hour of comedy.” —The Scotsman

Recommended for ages 18 and up; contains nudity and strong sexual content.

In Asking For It, choreographer, circus acrobat, dancer, writer, and comedian Adrienne Truscott, dressed only from the waist up and ankles down, undoes stereotypes about rape, comedy, and the awkward laughs in between. With commentary from George Carlin, Louis C. K., and Robert De Niro and featuring ducks, whistles, and enough gin and tonics to get a girl in trouble, Truscott’s “one-lady rape about comedy” has been praised for its “firecracker wit, sophistication, and luminous humanity” (Guardian).
