Brutal, brilliant and courageous. A shining hour of comedy from 2013 that preceded #metoo by years and has lost nothing of its relevance to the present.
Adrienne Truscott appears on the stand-up comedy stage with just a blond wig, a jeans jacket, high heels, and nothing else – because the leading role in this performance is played by her vagina! She dissects the rules and rhetoric of rape jokes and finds her very own, radical-feminist humor in them. She shows no mercy in doing so – from high-school athletes, to America’s Dad Bill Cosby, all the way to the man currently tweeting from the Oval Office. She fathoms what is utterable – accompanied by pop music, comments by George Carlin, Louis C.K., Robert DeNiro, and enough gin and tonic to get any “girl” into trouble.

*Of course, younger guests are also cordially welcome, if they feel ready for a humorous dealing with questions of sexualized violence.
