Sarah Silverman & Friends
Sarah Silverman: Never has anybody so pretty made so many people uncomfortable as stand-up comedienne Sarah Silverman; especially eye to eye with her on a tour date. The writer/comedienne/actress is well known for her subject matter that makes fun of nearly every social and ethnic group on the face of the planet, including her own Jewish heritage. She's written for hilarious stand-up tour dates, acted in humorous television shows and movies, and released her own frolicsome stand-up special, Jesus is Magic. Despite the truckload of fame Silverman has experienced, she still finds time for stand-up, bringing crowds around the world to tears on her occasional comedy tour dates. While there are no tour dates in 2011 for Sarah Silverman, it usually means that she's up to hilarious hijinks on-screen.Sarah Silverman's first stand-up performance at the age of seventeen incorporated her musical talent, as she performed a rendition of her original song, "Mammaries". Silverman's career really began to take off when, in 1993, she was hired as a writer on Saturday Night Live. Despite her recognizable talent, nearly none of her sketches made it to the live shows and she was fired a year later by fax. Ever the trooper, Sarah Silverman continued tour dates as a stand-up comedienne, waiting for her next big break. The setback didn't seem to hinder Silverman, as in 1995 she began appearing on Mr. Show with Bob and David, and shortly after gained a recurring role on The Larry Sanders Show. In the late 90's, Silverman began receiving bit roles in major movies, the most notable of which is as one of the title-character's girlfriends in There's Something About Mary. Silverman continued to play these roles throughout the late 90's/early 2000s, as well as performing stand-up on national tour dates. She caught a break in 2002 with a role as an insufferable girlfriend in The School of Rock. The same year, she also joined the cast of Crank Yankers, a show that played recorded prank phone calls that were later acted out by puppets. Sarah hit the big time with her 2005 stand-up comedy special, Jesus is Magic. The special featured Silverman's signature shocking style as well as a number of comedy skits and musical numbers developed on stand-up tour dates in small clubs. In the wake of the special's success, Silverman moved from small to leading roles in films, eventually scoring her own show on Comedy Central, conveniently titled The Sarah Silverman Program. With the show now gone, fans are looking forward to the next project the riotous comedienne has in store. While Sarah Silverman has no stand-up tour dates in 2011 Fans are also looking forward to future tours from Sarah Silverman to check out new material and to see Sarah raw and uncensored.
