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.”
See it if you're open to very funny sexual humor; are not offended by the subject of oral sex; you like a one-woman stand-up comedian with quick wit.
Don't see it if you only like serious plays or musicals or you're offended by the humorous description of body parts, intercourse, and oral sex.
See it if you enjoy someone obsessing and being overly critical and intellectualizing about her ability to perform fallacio.
Don't see it if you bore easily while someone is rambling on and on about fallacio

Don't see it if You don't want to hear sexual content, especially from a woman's point of view.

Don't see it if You are expecting a big production. It’s a empty stage, the performer and a microphone.
See it if you like smart humor with a clever twist. this show was an absolute delight. she is brilliant and I'd 100% see it again.
Don't see it if truly don't know who wouldn't like it. I think I'd even take my parents despite the title. I'd also take colleagues ... friends... GO!
See it if Totally shocked. Thought it was going to be crazily vulgar. Instead, it was intelligent and beautifully expressed. Literary allusions galore
Don't see it if I cannot think of any reason not to see it, other than the fact that some people might find it vulgar. She is so smart so nothing was vulgar
See it if You want to see a witty, clever, observant, honest exploration and analysis of the mouth-to-phallice exchange. Delightful comic
Don't see it if 90 minutes became long for me and material repeated itself once or twice. Audience laughed less as it went on. Should have wrapped up sooner
