Adrienne Truscott: Adrienne Truscott's Asking For It

12 April 2014 | 6:40 pm | Baz McAlister

"Charm and incredible stage presence hold it together."

Wild Wau Wau Sister Truscott is a veteran performer but makes no secret she's a stand-up newbie – and structurally, Asking For It is a bit raw and breathless, forcing some premises down blind alleys, dwelling too long on others. However, her charm and incredible stage presence hold it together. For a show billed with full-frontal nudity and rape jokes, it's not actually that confronting. It's not quite a merciless deconstruction of rape joke culture – this is comedy, not activism. With a deft touch, Truscott gets the balance right.
