Adrienne Truscott's A One-Trick Pony (Or Andy Kaufman's A Feminist Performance Artist and I'm A Comedian)

This show is about Adrienne Truscott’s suspicion, following the runaway success of her previous piece, that anything she makes may disappoint. But comedy isn’t for pussies, so Truscott’s throwing hers back in the ring!

Your #1 Gimmicky-Pantsless-Performance Artist Turned Comedian wrestles with standing up while telling jokes, ‘second shows’, stealing material, categorization and bad reviews. All while paying homage to her favorite (dead?!) ‘comedian’.

The Australian Times says, ‘A feminist masterpiece disguised behind dick-jokes and partial nudity. It’s brilliant!’ 4.5 stars.

Chortle gives it 2 stars and says a definitive ‘Whatever’.

What if failing is a feminist act? How do you respond to reviews? How does a stage define who or what you are? What do you do for a ‘second show’? Who cares? She’s naked and wants to wrestle.
