Comedian Jacqueline Novak’s 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. Ira Glass calls it a “nearly Talmudic dissection of a subject. Really funny and just really like nothing else.”
Jacqueline Novak is a comedian whose Off-Broadway, one-woman stand-up show, Get on Your Knees is a New York Times ‘Critic’s Pick‘. Recognized by the Times on “Best Theater of 2019” and “Best Comedy of 2019” lists, the show has been extended six times in New York City and earned Jacqueline a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance. In the most recent NYC extension, the show ran for six sold out weeks. Jacqueline is a regular on Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
She has appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, HBO’s 2 Dope Queens, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and in her own half-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central’s The Half Hour. Jacqueline’s memoir How to Weep in Public: Feeble Offerings on Depression from One Who Knows was published by Crown in 2016 and is now available as an audiobook. New episodes of POOG, a podcast Jacqueline co-hosts with Kate Berlant, come out every Tuesday.
'Brilliant on the absurdity of having and being a thinking, feeling, desiring body. Shrewd, explicit, though not exactly raunchy, this is the funniest show about Cartesian dualism you will see all year!'
'The jokes are tremendous and hilarious, but also the exposure of it—it’s big boy stuff. It really is.'
