“Ladies and Gentlemen, I have seen the Muhammed Ali of comedy.” - John Mulaney
"Critic's Pick! 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 New York Times
"Clearly her masterwork." - New York Magazine
"The true subject of Get on Your Knees is language and its beautiful, delusional attempts to make amends for human finitude. I’m not kidding. Over eighty minutes of manic soliloquy, Novak transfigures the clumsy corporeality of fellatio into a sparkling ode to poetry itself..- New York Review of Books, by Andrea Long Chu

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".

Approximate Run Time: Jacqueline Novak's GET ON YOUR KNEES plays in 1 hour and 25 minutes with no intermission.


JACQUELINE NOVAK: GET ON YOUR KNEES, originally scheduled to take place March 31 - April 12, 2020, will now take place September 7 - 19, 2021.
