In 2015, Nicki Minaj was paid approximately $400,000 to appear at a New York City bar mitzvah. On the red carpet of this bar mitzvah she posed for a photograph flanked by eight red-faced 13-year-old Jewish boys, four on each side. It is this beautiful human menorah that best summarises Emmy Blotnick. Emmy's comedy explores themes of anxiety, depression and neurosis alongside unlikely spirit guides Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Beyoncé, Andre 3000 and Swedish pop songwriter Max Martin. Whether or not they can point her in the right direction is anyone's guess.
A flawless hour of charming, upbeat stand-up on modern day life, bouncing from internet shopping, Dwayne Johnson, self help books, bra fitting and dance class.
