Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees
About Get On Your Knees
GET ON YOUR KNEES is the most high-brow show about blow jobs you’ll ever see. 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.
"Jacqueline Novak is my favorite stand-up comedian, period. Everyone else you’ve seen is a complete fraud, myself included,” said director John Early. “In the comedy hellscape we’re all currently suffering through, oversaturated with lazy irony and didacticism, Jacqueline is a shocking ray of intellectualism, craft, and pot-belly laughs. I feel very passionate about Jacqueline and I’m hoping that doesn’t constrict our rehearsal process. It is one of the great honors of my life to be directing (read: traipsing around the West Village with Jacqueline after shows) Jacqueline Novak: Get on Your Knees.”
“Jacqueline is a one of a kind voice for the ages,” said Natasha Lyonne. “I’m thrilled to present her show, as she is a total original whose linguistic gymnastics took my brain topsy turvy while doubling me over with laughter. I can’t wait for people to experience her hugely relevant show and singular artistry at Cherry Lane.”
