ACADEMY OF MUSIC THEATRE PRESENTS: ASKING FOR IT WITH ADRIENNE TRUSCOTT


WHAT: ACADEMY OF MUSIC THEATRE PRESENTS: ASKING FOR IT WITH ADRIENNE TRUSCOTT
WHEN: Saturday, October 27th at 8pm, Doors at 7:30 pm
WHERE: Academy of Music Theater

The Academy of Music Theatre presents Asking for It with Adrienne Truscott on October 27th at 8pm, which mixes humor, dance, and video while undoing the rules and rhetoric surrounding rape and comedy. Adrienne straddles the world of stand-up and performance art in this one-woman show dressed only from the waist up and ankles down. With commentary from George Carlin, Louis C. K. and Robert De Niro, she takes on ducks, mini-skirts, rape whistles, Daniel Tosh, and Rick Ross all while drinking enough gin & tonics to get a girl in trouble. Heavy at its core but light on its feet, Adrienne makes jokes about rape all night long…even if you ask her to stop. *This show contains nudity and strong language.

“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)
