"Hovde's cast is a mix of old hands and new faces — most notably, Jessica Joy, a glamorous newcomer with the air of impending tragedy that serves performers at Second City well. Joy, who clearly has all kinds of promise, has the other killer sequence in the show. It's a comic song in Act 2 that's notable, first, because Joy can really sing and, second, because every single one of its gags lands. It's merely a series of sung questions: "Is there a heaven for atheists when we watch the Christians at the moment when they realize there is no heaven?" "If Jesus doesn't sing on your album, why are you thanking him for your Grammy?" And, my personal favorite due to my frequent actual ponderings, "What happens when someone doesn't turn off their electronic devices when the plane takes off?""
- CHRIS JONES, CHICAGO TRIBUNE FOR THE SECOND CITY'S "SKY'S THE LIMIT (WEATHER PERMITTING)"
"Watching Jessica Joy’s dumb blonde secretary Helen watch her step scores laugh after laugh"
-STEVEN STANLEY, STAGESCENE LA FOR THE GARRY MARSHALL THEATRE'S "LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR"
"Show stopper, the delightful Jessica Joy as Helen, finds her own way as the ditzy blonde secretary. With all the frantic goings on, Ms Joy provides a breath of fresh air (to coin a phrase..) that moves from her perfectly pitched introduction in the opening tableau to revealing humor that mitigates the pace of the show"
-ON STAGE LA FOR THE GARRY MARSHALL THEATRE'S "LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR"
"Delightfully, the person who ends up walking off with the play stashed in her handbag is Jessica Joy. Playing Helen, Max's sweet-tempered and curvy secretary, Joy basically reflects back every outsized emotion she encounters.The office girl Friday stealing all the best laughs from a room full of professional yuksters? In the land of Neil Simon Lite, anything is possible."
