Praise for Cry Baby:

“Actress Jamie Aderski brings her solo show about the absurdity, mysteries and miseries of motherhood to the PIT. She faces the grim truths about maternity that nobody wants to talk about with joyous aplomb and plenty of laughs along the way.” -Time Out New York (Critic's Pick)

“...there’s no excuse to miss this raw and hysterical portrayal of parenthood that’s just as appropriate for those who have kids at home as for those who intend never to procreate.” -AFAR Local

“Motherhood is no f-ing joke. And comic Jamie Aderski will be the first to agree with me on that … At its best, though, Aderski’s piece is personal and honest, which does strike a humorous chord, as so many of the hardest things in life can be if you just take a step back and see the funny through the pain.” -The Broadway Blog

“This show will change your perceptions whether that bouncing baby is yours, you are thinking about popping one out, or you just abandoned your Tamagotchi after the first day. You just can’t miss Aderski’s one-woman show Cry Baby: My (Reluctant) Journey Into Motherhood at The Peoples Improv Theater!” -Comedy Cake

“In her show (and our interview), Jamie gives a refreshingly eye-opening look into the reality and truths of motherhood, the lies she was told about it and how it’s not all Instagram-worthy. She’ll tell you what to expect when you’re expecting and the good, the bad and the poopy.” -High Regard Show
