Exclusive Interview with Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman was extremely generous this week to answer a few questions exclusively for Sarah Silverman Online!

SSO: First off, fantastic job at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards! What is your reaction to all of the attention brought on by your Paris Hilton joke this week?

Sarah: It’s very bittersweet. There was no way I wasn’t going to do a Paris joke – it was the 500 pound gorilla in the room. But, I felt bad for her, too.

SSO: How do you feel knowing that you’ve made Cisco Adler’s balls even more famous?

Sarah: Honored. I don’t know why, but his balls inspire me. That picture inspires me. As a person.

SSO: I’ve read that growing up you were a huge fan of Steve Martin. Were there any female comedians who you looked up to?

Sarah: I loved Ruth Gordon who was more of a character actress and writer. Also, Paula Poundstone. Joan Rivers… I loved the Carol Burnett show – how loose it was and how it felt like a group of friends having a blast.

SSO: Congrats to you and Jimmy celebrating almost FIVE years together. After all these years, what is it that you love the most about him?

Sarah: He’s kind and thoughtful and VERY VERY funny. He’s always thinking – a real idea man in the most traditional sense. He’s a great host – public and personally. He’s just my (this is very gay) – he’s my best friend.

SSO: Your fans are anxiously awaiting season two of The Sarah Silverman Program. Will there be any “Cookie Party” references this season?

Sarah: YES! We’re shooting a whole Cookie Party episode! Laura and I get to be contestents (against the Mustangs – the male cheerleaders who beat up Steve in Humanitarian last year.)

SSO: Is there a lot of sexual tension working with Steve Agee and Brian Posehn on the show?

Sarah: Between them? Sometimes — when they bond about music or video games. They’ve truly become good friends from this show. They were two guys I was friends with that didn’t really know each other until the show.

SSO: How did it feel playing “psycho fan” Marci Maven for the second time on Monk?

Sarah: I loved it. I’m a fan of the show and I really like that character. She’s so peppy and sincere and ridiculous. and Tony is just awesome.

SSO: Besides Jimmy Kimmel Live, what is your favorite TV show?

Sarah: I love TV. I watch SO MANY shows — 24 (still hanging in there) LOST (unbelievable season this year!) the Sopranos (I’m depressed about it being over – this season has been mind blowing) 30 Rock, Letterman, and then a bunch of reality: Top Chef, Project Runway, Americas Next Top Model — all that shit. I love it so much.

SSO: Which word is funnier to you, “doody,” “diarrhea” or “vagina?”

Sarah: It’s a tie between doody and diarrhea. then vagina second.

SSO: What can we expect from Sarah Silverman in the near future?

Sarah: More episodes. That’s all I’m focused on now. We have 16 episodes to write and shoot. They will air 6 of them in October and then another 10 next summer.

SSO: Do you ever check out SarahSilvermanOnline.com on occasion?

Sarah: Yes I do sometimes! – I can’t believe you do this! It’s so nice!!

SSO: Thank you so much for doing this interview for Sarah Silverman Online! I know that your answers will be much appreciated by all your fans!

Sarah: My pleasure, Doll – you’re the best, I really appreciate you doing this site.
