Colin Quinn star of Broadway and Comedy Central says-‐ I love Jennifer’s show because it’s a sad yet funny, ugly yet beautiful story about humanity and inhumanity!
Sally Kirkland Academy Award Nominated Actress says – “I have followed Jennifer’s shows and I think she is just wonderful”
James Morrison star of “24” says -‐ “ Thank you Jennifer. I want to tell you how much your stories moved me and how deeply thoughtful a tribute it was to the victims of war”
Jillian Lauren best selling author of Some Girls and Pretty says- Jennifer Rawlings turns a comic’s eye on the most tragic of circumstances and in doing so offers an engaging and unique personal perspective on global issues and on humanity itself.
Playwright Alana Free -‐ It is an amazing piece of work. Right from the heart. So clear, direct, and a piece that can change the world!!
Audiences say-‐ We were truly impressed, especially by Jennifer’s ability to make us laugh out loud…and a few seconds later, to bring us to tears. It was a very moving and memorable experience….

-‐-‐ It’s great to MEAN it when I say you have an extraordinary show. You can take and audience from hilarity to grief and back to hilarity which is pretty nearly impossible.
