Jacqueline Novak sets Off-Broadway run for “Get On Your Knees”

The next comedian to debut an Off-Broadway show at the Cherry Lane Theatre is Jacqueline Novak, who’ll bring “Get On Your Knees” to the venue this summer.

It’s set for a limited engagement from July 10 through Aug. 18, 2019.

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.”

“I’ve been working on this show for the last few years, everywhere from comedy clubs and backyard parties in Brooklyn to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and most recently in black box theaters in Los Angeles,” Novak said. “It’s thrilling to bring it to New York City, the town where I developed as comedian, not to mention at one of its most beautiful theaters— the Cherry Lane.”

Get On Your Knees will be directed by John Early, executive produced by Mike Birbiglia and presented by Natasha Lyonne.
