Sarah Silverman, the multitalented siren of acerbic satire, is accustomed to the sound of jaws hitting the floor. Throughout her decades in the comedy spotlight, she has never shown an affinity for soft-shoeing, which all three million followers of her hard-nosed tweets can attest to. From her first break on Saturday Night Live to her hit film Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic and her New York Times bestselling autobiography The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee, Sarah’s penchant for ironic misdirection and pointed outrage has made her a comic’s comic and hero for all self-professed comedy nerds.
Now in her early 40s with countless film credits, including a dramatic role in the independent film Take This Waltz, Sarah’s devilish standup act has acquired a self-mocking sense of maturity. From making personal revelations to taking taboo topics such as religion, racism, and sexism to the ropes, Sarah surprises fans with her deceptive delivery: jokes are set up with a sugary voice and impish grin before expectations are cuckolded in by her haymaking punch lines. Expect excess banter as Silverman road tests new material, and keep fingers crossed that she’ll break out her guitar and sing one of her scatological songs.
