Description

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.

As a neurotic Jewish millennial, Emmy Blotnick pretty much glories in decadent Western culture eating itself, the New Yorker's spirit incident the unlikely appearance of rapper Nicki Minaj at a 13-year-old boy's bar mitzvah for an eye-watering amount of money. ...

Chortle (3/5 stars) 92 days ago

Party Time is most definitely an ironic title. Emmy Blotnick cuts an awkwardly mild-mannered figure, adorkably endearing but very much exuding the delicate vibe of a quiet one who’s finally been given her chance to speak. ...

The Skinny (4/5 stars) 94 days ago

Emmy Blotnick emanates charm and likeability from the moment she steps on stage. With such effortless presence it would be easy for her to adopt a more arrogant persona; instead she talks the audience through her various anxieties and neuroses in an Edinburgh debut the New York native can be...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 95 days ago

The warmup music – Rihanna’s Kiss it Better – to Emily Blotnick‘s stand up set hints at what we’re soon to learn about the comic: she likes powerful divas who can dance, hip-hop will be providing her with some pun material, and she’s very, very cool (despite her protestations to...
