Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees, written by and starring Jacqueline Novak, is back for a limited run, now through January 26. The show, "a standup comedy set that inclines towards theater (New York Times)," plays the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, between Hudson and Bleecker Streets).

Critics are raving about Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees. The New York Times cheered, "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!" Time Out New York applauded, "4 Stars! Absurd, real and hilarious. Novak's winning show does what the best comedy can do: It changes the conversation." New York Magazine said that the show is "clearly her masterwork" and The New Yorker raved, "the show is an over thinker's delight, and a reminder that a woman's humor can cut as deeply as her rage."

Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees is the most high-brow show about blowjobs 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.
