Sheen says Sarah available for butt

Posted by Gator on September 28th, 2014

DailyBeastLogoMichael Sheen wittily sidestepped when the Daily Beast interviewer tried to stir up some talk about his relationship with Sarah. This is Caryn James talking to Sheen (9/28/14).

CJ: One last question. You got a lot of publicity for having your butt grabbed on the red carpet at the Met Gala.

MS: I didn’t know we got lots of publicity

CJ: It was all over the web.

MS: I don’t remember. I am genuinely unaware of that.

CJ: Okay. I think it was the moment when people said, “Oh yes Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen are a couple because she grabbed his butt on the red carpet at the Met.” There is a photograph of her hand on your butt if you want to look it up online.

MS: I don’t need to. I can have her grab my butt whenever I want.

Sarah is back on Jerry Seinfeld’s online mini-series, Single Shot, this week, but only briefly.  The episode (“Pee-Pee Time”) premiered Thursday. Sarah appears at 1m:38s, but it’s funnier if you watch some of the pieces before hers to get the theme. 

You can watch the episode (less than 3 minutes) at the CCGC site or at Crackle.com.

Go here to see her in other episodes of Single Shot.

‘Bedwetter: The Musical’ back in the news

Posted by Gator on September 25th, 2014

BedwetterMiniLogoBroadwayworld.com and other media are reporting that Sarah “revealed” on the Howard Stern Show this week that she is working on a stage musical version of her memoir, The Bedwetter. Even JASH ‘s tumblr site reposted the information as “breaking news.”

Fans know better. Sarah talked about that project in her Rolling Stone interview back in February. In case you’re a Sarah neophyte looking for more details, here’s the relevant piece of the Rolling Stone article. (But as you see, she hasn’t said much about the show yet.)

Sarah: I don’t know if I should say this, but I’ve been working on a musical of my book The Bedwetter with Adam Schlesinger [from Fountains of Wayne]. I wouldn’t be in it, but it’s all about my childhood stuff.

Rolling Stone: Will that be Off-Broadway in New York?

Sarah:  Yeah. But it’s such a long process. I probably shouldn’t say anything. But we have a first outline and we’re writing songs. It would be so dark, but a child would star in it. The character goes from six to 19. Adam Schlesinger is the one who thought about turning the book into a musical. I couldn’t believe it. I’m so excited about the prospect of it. It would be so cool.

Sarah to be in New Hampshire Saturday

Posted by Gator on September 23rd, 2014

Sarah has been talking about it for months (beginning with her notorious Jesus video), and it is finally here: the September 27 Lady Parts Justice “V to Shining V” national event. This is how the newspaper of her home state’s capital, where she will be on Saturday, reported it this week (including answers from Sarah). [Click the tweet at the bottom for details about the Concord appearance.]

Women’s rights are a serious matter, and they’re under siege by politicians across the country. That’s the message from the national organization Lady Parts Justice, which is using comedy to spread the word.

The group, co-founded in 2012 by former Daily Show head writer Lizz Winstead, aims to use comedy, culture and digital media to foster a greater understanding of women’s reproductive rights.

“I hope that through the lens of humor we can expose how bad this War on Women has gotten and just what is at stake,” Winstead wrote in a 2012 post announcing the launch of Lady Parts Justice.

This Saturday, the group will launch “V to Shining V 2014” gatherings across the country meant to raise awareness about what and who are on the ballot this election cycle. Comedian Sarah Silverman will host a V to Shining V event at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Earlier this year, Silverman starred in a 5-minute Lady Parts Justice YouTube sketch about reproductive rights.

The comedian answered some of the Monitor’s questions by email this week.

How did you get involved with V to Shining V and Lady Parts Justice?

Lizz Winstead is one of my heroes, and she also happens to be one of my very best friends. When she formed Lady Parts Justice and V to Shining V, I told her I was all in!

Why do you think it’s an important cause?

Women’s rights are being chipped away at on the down low – at the state level – where a lot of us don’t tend to look, unfortunately. It’s important not just to be aware of what you believe is right but of what our lawmakers are doing. Because we hire them, with our vote or lack of vote. They work for us, and if we don’t like what they’re doing it’s our responsibility as citizens to get ’em out.

What is the most important issue facing women this election cycle?

It’s shocking that it’s an issue 40 years after Roe V. Wade, but a woman’s right to choose is a big one. As well as equal pay. Could you imagine in a million years a man being okay with being told by the government what he can and can’t do with his own human body? No way. Because it’s unacceptable. Do you think men would be just fine with being paid 77 cents to every dollar a woman is paid? No way. But that is the case with women’s pay. And the Paycheck Fairness act was killed. You know.

How is New Hampshire an important player in this movement?

It’s my home state. That’s why it concerns me most. And it’s imperative that we as N.H. women (and men!) are aware of who is representing our state and what they’re doing.

Why is humor the best way to get at this issue, and how have you found it draws people to the cause?

Because it’s getting informed without it being homework. Comedy through the years has always told the truth about history, and has been on the right side of history.
