On board for the trip will be favorites such as Dr. Amir, an Indian Ayurvedic Doctor,
Ruth, an old Jewish woman
who is famous for her dirty jokes,
and Danny, a guy from Brooklyn who hits on anything that moves.
What critics have said about Blaine's previous one-woman shows:
"Not even Sybil could compete with all of her personalities. Her comic genius is like Lily Tomlin & Tracey Ullman." Philadelphia Daily News

In her sharp, funny one-woman show, "SORRY," actress-comedian Jennifer Blaine takes a look at men, women and the word that separates us all: "sorry." Her wacky assortment of characters keep you engaged from start to finish, as well as stock you up with a few dirty jokes sure to delight the grandparents." Philadelphia Daily News, 2003

"In "Upside Down…Whuh?" Blaine proffers spot-on physical characterizations. Ruth's quivering bent-over body and Danny's macho postures are both convincing and laugh-out loud funny." From a feature by Deni Kasrel, "Cult of Personality," Philadelphia Daily News, 2006

Deni Kasrel of CITY PAPER recently featured Blaine in an article: "In Blaine's work there's issues of diversity and connectivity. Being connected to everybody in the world. The shows have a unifying effect." Jennifer is honored that two of her previous Philly Fringe shows were both chosen as "Pick of the Fringe" by City Paper. Blaine has also enjoyed periodic performances at the WomenSpeak Theater Festival for her shows "Sorry" and for "White Flight: A Love Letter to My Neighborhood."
Blaine attracts a wide audience, ranging in ages, races, and voices as diverse as her characters and unites them all in laughter.
