Comedian Jacqueline Novak’s "Get On Your Knees," the most high-brow show about blow jobs you’ll ever see, returns for an encore presentation. More…
From the show:
Novak spins her material on the femininity of the penis and the stoicism of the vulva into an unexpectedly philosophical show that’s part feminist outcry, part coming-of-age tale of triumph. Ira Glass calls it a “nearly Talmudic dissection of a subject. Really funny and just really like nothing else.”
