Jack Antonoff & Girlfriend Carlotta Kohl Make Red Carpet Debut at Jacqueline Novak Opening Night!

Jack Antonoff happily hits the carpet alongside his girlfriend Carlotta Kohl while attending the opening night of Jacqueline Novak: Get on Your Knees held at the Cherry Lane Theatre on Monday (July 22) in New York City.

The 35-year-old musician and model-photographer Carlotta made their official carpet debut at the event as they supported the star of the show Jacqueline Novak.

Also in attendance to show their support was Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, Abbi Jacobson, Jacqueline Novak, Phoebe Robinson, Rachel Dratch, David Alan Grier, Judd Apatow, John Mulaney, Marisa Tomei, John Early, Mike Birbiglia, Bridget Everett and Murray Hill.

Get On Your Knees, presented by Lyonne and executive-produced by Birbiglia, is part feminist outcry and part coming-of-age story – Jacqueline Novak spins her material on the femininity of the penis and the stoicism of the vulva into an unexpectedly philosophical show.

“Jacqueline is a one of a kind voice for the ages,” Lyonne said in a statement. “I’m thrilled to present her show, as she is a total original whose linguistic gymnastics took my brain topsy turvy while doubling me over with laughter. I can’t wait for people to experience her hugely relevant show and singular artistry at Cherry Lane.”

Jack and his longtime partner Lena Dunham announced their break up in early January of 2018, and he faced some untrue Lorde romance rumors in the weeks following.

David Alan Grier Reveals Why He Turned Down 'Forrest Gump' Role on 'Busy Tonight' - Watch!

David Alan Grier made an appearance on Busy PhilippsBusy Tonight on Monday (November 26) and revealed why he turned down the role of “Bubba Blue” in the beloved 1994 film, Forrest Gump.

“My manager sent me a script and she said, ‘I want you to read this.’ Uh, the lead character is a mentally challenged man. His best friend is mentally challenged. Now already I’m funky,” the 62-year-old actor recalled.

“I’m like, listen if I’m going to be playing a mentally challenged person, I got to be the lead, I can’t be no mentally challenged side kick,” David added. “It was Forrest Gump. So I read 20 pages and I said listen man, I’m not going in on this. He’s talking about shrimp the whole damn movie, no, nuh uh. I don’t get it. I don’t get it. So uh, she called me three times, she called me three times. She’s said, ‘The director loves you, Tom [Hanks], everybody.’ So that was lesson learned, it was all on me, and I screwed that up.”
