ADRIENNE TRUSCOTT’s ASKING FOR IT: A One-Lady Rape About Comedy Starring Her Pussy and Little Else!

THIS HIGHLY ACCLAIMED, MULTI-AWARD WINNING SHOW IS COMING TO LONDON…
7:00 Sun 20th October @ Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club
BUY TICKETS HERE

Trouserpress

Adrienne Truscott, one-half of the infamous Wau Wau Sisters, dressed only from the waist up and the ankles down, undoes and does in the rules and rhetoric about rape, comedy and the awkward laughs in between. With commentary from George Carlin, Louis C. K. and Robert De Niro, polkadots, whistles, and enough gin and tonics to get a girl in trouble, she lets her pussy do the talking. Set to pop music. Can you make jokes about rape? She plans to, all night long…

“It’s thrilling to see a show with passion, a point to make and not the slightest apology for making it.” The Guardian ★★★★

“Without doubt the most powerful hour of comedy on the Fringe.” Copstick, The Scotsman ★★★★

“Very, very funny, with some terrific bellylaughs… Political, satirical, experimental and willing to charge headfirst until it reaches a glorious conclusion….” The Skinny ★★★★★

Phil Kay – How To Be Shit on QI Twice
23rd and 24th @ 6:30pm – The Looking Glass
Live and languid.. Phil’s Feral Will fully in force.. roaming over and living rough on the landscape of his mind.. free to ramble and wander about following scruffy paths picking the berries, salads and free mushrooms that grow wild.. free to pluck what he wants in a superlush environment. Songs, achievements and neuro-ruralism.

Bob Slayer – Is Turning Over a New Leaf
22nd, 23rd and 24th @ 9:30 – The Looking Glass
The unsignable multi-minor-award winning agent provocateur Bob has rejected + been rejected by TV and so is turning his hand to literature. Destined to become one of those prolific writers & with much time to make up he’s writing a book every show. The next book is: 1001 Jobs I Have Been Fired From. Not just story telling this is story creation! A new groundbreaking genre that someone else will make a fortune out of in a few years time. “Outstandingly unmissable” The Scotsman

Where will you do Edinburgh Fringe 2013? Why?

“HEROES OF FRINGE” is the new name for Alternative Fringe
The Hive is centrally located on Niddry Street between The Royal Mile and Cowgate EH1 1LG
+ For 2013 we have other venues as well…
HEROES MISSION STATEMENT:
- “We will never charge you any guarantee, rent or other hidden charges – and we think you should question any venue or agent that wants you to!! We offer great production in centrally located venues for FREE and PAID shows – So if you have got pots of money to spend then by all means give it to the Pay To Play venues and help send their kids to Eton… However if you are more discerning and creative with your cash come welcome to Heroes of Fringe – We believe that Artists should not have to risk putting themselves in debt to go to Edinburgh” Bob Slayer 2013
Last year:
- All our shows got reviewed last year
- We also had:-  Sold out shows – Award winning shows – 5 Star shows -
- And a whole lot of press praising us for standing up against the Pay To Play venues.
2013 is going to be even more exciting!
“PAY WHAT YOU WANT” - Our more honest name for FREE SHOWS
- The difference with PWYW is people can pay in advance and drop a ticket in your bucket instead of cash. This will increase your bucket by 2 to 4 times what you would get on a Free show.
- PWYW emphasises that Heroes shows are different to your average Free Show
- These are curated shows… not just any Tom, Dick or Harry Deansway can get into Heroes of Fringe!
PAID SHOWS 
- which are effectively “PAY WHAT YOU WANT” – with a minimum ticket price £ set…
APPLICATIONS
Our new website runs on the same system as Laughing Horse – and you can use the same login
built by Craig Shaynak (you may know him from his show “I AM Google”)
- You can also apply through the Laughing Horse Application (if you have done this already you don’t need to apply again)

FAQ

WHY THE CHANGE OF NAME??
The Alternative Fringe was a statement against the Pay-to-Play promoters.
We have proved there is another way and Heroes of Fringe is a fully fledged promoter in its own right.
Also “Alternative” is a dated term that means many different things to different people. It could become a bit of a millstone.

WHERE DO I APPLY?
WHO IS BEHIND HEROES OF FRINGE?
Heroes was set up by Bob Slayer who several publications have described as harnessing “The Spirit of the Fringe” including The Scotsman, The Fix, Huffingdon Post, The Skinny, John Fleming, FringeGuru etc – this was probably initiated on bobslayer.com!
WHAT IS THE CONNECTION WITH LAUGHING HORSE?
We are an Independent Promoter. We grew out of a Laughing Horse venue. We use the same web database as them and have a deal to put our posters in their venues. However we are separate and independent of them.
MY SHOW IS TERRIBLE SHOULD I STILL APPLY?
Is it really terrible? I mean so shockingly bad that we want to see it everyday? If so yes apply and mark your application “Even worse than Bob Slayer’s show…”
