Sarah Silverman in Blackface

blackface.jpg

It appears that the next season of The Sarah Silverman Program is already creating some controversy.

A preview copy of Comedy Central’s new season of “The Sarah Silverman Program” is raising eyebrows for a sketch that shows the comedian wearing blackface. “The theme is, Sarah is rejected from a club because she’s a Jew,” a source tells the New York Daily News. “She says to her black waiter, ‘There’s nothing harder than being a Jew.’ The waiter says, ‘Oh yeah? Try being black for a day.’ So they switch places.” The new season begins airing next month. – Eurweb.com

Unfortunately I cannot find any pictures from the episode but hopefully ComedyCentral.com will have a clip of it soon.

    Sounds funny to me! Can´t wait to see it. Good to know she can still create controversy.

  2. Ansell says:

    Proposition: She must keep being the Jew and let the audience that follows her be black for a day. If I were right after her she would think as if there was a black man behind. (Why? Because I’ve got a tan! lol )

  3. Joe says:

    I’m a person of color and even I think that is totally Hilarious! I love Sarah and her show….I look forward to the new season.
    Anyone offended by her being in blackface should just try to understand the context and see the humor in it.

    I cant wait to see the episode, I hope it isn’t too controversial, lol.

    My problem with Sarah when she is on stage is that I can’t see her from her back. She is gorgeous that we must have mirrors places all around so that when you are behind her you can see her beauty of the front and vice versa. The appearance must never be limited depending on where you are looking her from.

    I bid farewell to my past,
    I buried it at last,
    My mourning must be over,
    Someone to make me laugh come fast…

    Seeing beauties all around,
    Any such talent was hardly found,
    Rambling on stages,
    Auburn, Red or Blonde,
    Heavenly laughter here renowned

    To Sarah with Love,
    Ramon

    WOW! that sounds extremely funny, I can’t wait to see it.

    I think people these days are too uptight about things and arn’t as relaxed as Ms. Silverman.
    I can see how some might find it offensive IF they don’t know Sarah’s humour and that she isn’t racist at all…just as long as you think she’s thin 😀

    im cringing with excitement already! …

    Race jokes can attract applause and criticism equally. Leave races aside and think about racy subjects, Sarah. For example think of Kama Sutra or Tantra and what jokes may come out of it. Or pick some subjects like chocolate, a certain amount of which when consumed gives the same feeling of having had orgasm. I also think a woman can always find jokes about hairdresses or hair. By the way I love your hair and if I was right behind you, at the expense of people thinking that I’m pickpocketing you, I’d love to touch your wonderful hair. Who’s your hairdresser, Sarah?

    Hey, Sarah will be presenting at the VMA’s this weekend

    We’ll see…

    People give her so much praise for creating controversy. She doing the same racist stunts and jokes that people did when I was in grammar school and junior high. Except kids are being paid boatloads of money to say offensive stuff. She is. I say stop paying Sarah Silverman and kick the big bucks back down to grammar schools and junio high schools where most of her material originates. They need it a lot more than she does.

  13. Molly says:

    hey sarah
    I hate your guts. I can’t believe the courage it took Britney to get up on that stage after all the bad press she’s had and after going through a divorce and now a custody battle, battling with depression. YOU SUCK ASS for taking such a low shot at her and her kids. fuck you.

  14. molly says:

    PS-
    you aren’t even funny and it’s totally obvious you are just jealous of Britney and Paris because they are pretty.

  15. MollySucksCockForFoodStamps says:

    Molly,

    Sarah is making fun of them because they are stupid, pathetic piles of talentless scrotum sweat. And you fall into that category just for supporting them. Every piece of bad press they have is self-made, sweetie.

    PS?? How old are we, like 7? It takes a REALLY big person to insult somebody’s looks. Molly, quit blowing your step-dad in the trailer park and realize there are more important things in life then partying and being an airhead whorebag. Now go wrap your lips around an exhaust pipe and swallow. :)

  16. joe says:

    My dog’s poo last night looked better than Sarah’s ugly, haggard, jew face. Nice beak Sarah. Why don’t you have your ugly ass husband get you a nose job. Damn your ugly!!!

  17. sue says:

    What’s that bush above Sarah eye’s, owe that’s her eyebrow. Dang she is hairy. Ever heard of shaving or plucking. BTW your not funny, I’ve seen your show and was dragged to your movie, never laughed once. Your talentless, except for maybe giving blowjobs, which is probably why your even on stage working now. I wish I could give up all my self respect, morals and pride to be famous. Good Job Sarah

  18. moi says:

    Such a classy gurl!

  19. Gina says:

    OSAMA be Damned…we have sarah silverman to deal with now!!

  20. Gina says:

    simple minds choose sarah silverman

  21. Pomo says:

    Sarah, you are simply the best!

    Your new show and MTV appearances are even funnier than the incoherent ramblings of your dimwitted critics; i.e., comments #13, 16, and 20.

    Keep up the great work!

    ….watch your back, Danny Aiello!!

  22. Katy says:

    You shitbags need to stop talking such trash about Sarah over here. Go to Britney’s lice-infested site. It’s not Sarah’s face that matters but her vagina. And learn the difference between your and you’re (e.g., your comments are worthless and you’re a smelly douche).

  23. YelloPorn says:

    I find your humour amusing. Especially pulling the piss out of that prize trailer-trash town-bus heroine, Britney.
    Pity you’re Jewish otherwise I’d bend you over and get you squealing. Jew Girls have more bush than Laura’s and the twins’ together.
    Sorry- but true. Must be Jews genes are mixed with Persian.
