|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE|
So You Don't Have To Be Sorry! - It's A COMEDY!!!
|"In her sharp, funny one-woman show, actress-comedian Jennifer Blaine takes a look at men, women and the word that separates us all: "sorry." Her wacky assortment of characters - the self-help Indian doctor and elderly Jewish woman steal the show - keep you engaged from start to finish,|
|as well as stock you up with a few dirty jokes sure to delight the grandparents. Best arrive early for a chance at seats."|
|-Elizabeth Greenspan, CITY PAPER September 2003|
"Jennifer Blaine's performance is outstanding. Her poignant use of humor is sheer catharsis for any woman who feels like she apologizes for everyone & everything. And to keep it gender-friendly, her ability to capture male personas makes "Sorry" a must-see." -Stasia DeMarco, Weekend Host & News Anchor WHYY
|A woman holds the door for you. You walk through. She says "sorry." Why do women say "sorry" unnecessarily? Can they stop? If something is not right, women want to hear "I'm sorry." Trouble is they're saying it even when they haven't done anything wrong. In her one-woman show Jennifer Blaine sets the record straight through more than a dozen characters.|
|Jennifer Blaine, host of the annual Philadelphia Women's Comedy Festival, has made audiences laugh for years. According to the Philadelphia Daily News "not even Sybil can compete with Blaine's cast of characters. Her comic genius is like Tracey Ullman and Lily Tomlin." Time Out NY has found her one-woman shows "touching and funny throughout." Blaine has opened for George Carlin, performed with Chris Rock, was featured on ABC's Philly After Midnight, and has appeared on Broadway. Blaine's original characters thrive off the spontaneous improvisational interplay with the audience. She regularly appears in voiceovers and commercials, and entertains at colleges and special events.|
|Jennifer Blaine has been creating solo performances since 1995, when her first show premiered at the Samuel Beckett on Theatre Row in New York City. Although she has been creating work, which is comprised exclusively of characters, in this show "Sorry" she includes herself as a narrator. Due to the world's ever growing unconsciousness and corruption, Jennifer felt called to take on the topic of gender, etiquette, and politics - and be funny about it. She has been collaborating with her father, Ed Blaine, a fiction writer for such publications as the North American Review and The Village Voice.|
Together they hope this show will entertain, unify, and illuminate - but mostly that it will make you laugh. Her solo show from last year, Cure-Alls, took her to Denver, Tampa, New York City, as well as other cities.
