Featuring a new cast and special guests galore, the show that helped to fuel the #MeToo movement is now playing in NYC, and we’ve got a pair of tickets ($50 value) to give away to one lucky winner!
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 Jenn Kidwell (Underground Railroad Game) and Mari Moriarty (Jet of Blood). These shows, directed and developed by Ellie Heyman, will also feature different special guests – comedians, sexual assault survivors, anti-harassment allies and more – at each performance. Those guests include Becca Blackwell, Carolyn Castiglia, Kerry Coddett, Amanda Duarte, Ophira Eisenberg, Bridget Everett, Negin Farsad, Martha Graham Cracker (aka Dito Van Reigersberg), Marisela 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.
(Still) Asking For It reveals how jokes tickle, thrill, enrage, or rile – when the storytellers bring vastly different lived experiences to the same provocative material. Imagine The Aristocrats if it were rooted in material that matters…and performed without pants.
Adrienne Truscott’s (Still) Asking For It runs from Friday, September 20th through Sunday, October 13th, at Joe’s Pub on Astor Place (425 Lafayette Street)in NYC. For a chance at a pair of free tickets to a showing of your choice, just enter your name and email below.
