Jacqueline Novak: How Embarrassing for Her
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Jacqueline Novak finds everything embarrassing... except for the obvious. Revealing intimate details of her life to strangers? Her chosen profession. Crying in public? She wrote a book encouraging it. Being caught for even a moment having something resembling self-esteem? Unbearable. As a woman, shame is constantly dumped upon you... in regards to body, beauty, sexual behavior and more. How Embarrassing for Her weaves Novak's personal stories with completely original stand-up to parse what does and does not deserve our embarrassment.
