See it if You want to see a funny and also extremely intelligent one woman show. Indescribable but staggeringly good.

Critic Reviews (9)

The New York Times
July 22nd, 2019
For a previous production

"In ‘Get on Your Knees,’ a Comedian Goes There. Jacqueline Novak’s show, a stand-up comedy set that inclines toward theater, offers a personal and intellectual history of oral sex."

Time Out New York
July 22nd, 2019
For a previous production

★★★★ "It's possible that you think you've already had your fill of dick jokes. If so, the sly, digressive comedian Jacqueline Novak might be able to turn you around. In her languid one-woman stage special 'Get On Your Knees,' Novak talks for nearly 90 minutes about blow jobs, discussing men's strangely shy appendage, the vulva and her own winding path through high-school self-consciousness and collegiate anxiety toward full oral confidence."

New Yorker
July 27th, 2019
For a previous production

“Jacqueline Novak’s comedy is an overthinker’s delight, and a reminder that a woman’s humor can cut as deeply as her rage.”

For a previous production

Lighting & Sound America
July 23rd, 2019
For a previous production

"Many a comic has struggled with expanding his or her act to a length suitable for an Off Broadway gig, and there's no getting around the fact that, at a certain point, 'Get on Your Knees' ends up on its knees. But Novak at her best is a cold blast of common sense…"

TheaterScene.net
July 23rd, 2019
For a previous production

"A riotous, literate and playfully raunchy extended standup comedy act, exploring sexuality. She confidently delivers her masterfully crafted material with very funny and thought provoking results. Her animated yet laid back presence forcefully renders her humorous observations with momentum."

Theatre is Easy
July 28th, 2019
For a previous production

"Novak nails the nonchalant attitude that serves this material well. And with her honesty and humor, she's created a performance that's about more than just blow jobs. But her narrative feels incomplete…'Get On Your Knees' could have done with a little more struggle."
