About the show

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 interested in funny, edgy, raunchy work. It's as much stand up comedy as one woman show, but it definitely works.

Don't see it if if you're at all prudish. The title tells you everything you need to know.

Edgy, Clever, Funny

See it if you like stand-up comics. An extended comedy club routine is expertly delivered and often funny. Some of the ideas can be hard to parse.

Don't see it if you are squeamish about sexual content. However, during the course of the show, the words/ideas loose any shock value.

Intelligent, Great writing, Entertaining, Clever, Great acting

See it if you're interested in a metaphoric and wildly intelligent look at men and women genitalia and their relationship to the various sexual acts.

Don't see it if if you're not interested in an intellectual and hysterically funny metaphoric discussion of men and women and their genitalia.
