Anyone know when tickets will be on sale for August 29th? I called the venue and they said it is not final yet :( sarah silverman is like my idol and i reeally need to see her…

I really like her!! I won´t miss it!

Yo why is she playing to a bunch of rednecks at a casino? That makes me a sad panda.

someone just totally stole my name but whatev…
i love sarah and chicago!

I love Chicago too!

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin’
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
cause if theres one thing that she don’t need
Its another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

I once bought a gun and stole a car and then tried to run but didn’t get far.

Hey Dennis Guinto, can you bring me some photos from sarah on stage, will give you back the pics with this korean chick from London. greetings Dietmar

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for the email update!

I’m glad you broke up w/Jimmy, but I hope it’s not cause you’re balling Matt Damon.

I think one eyebrow and a mustache make a female look more virile. Let’s say I’m attracted.

I was hoping you would have lezzie sex with me. I ate baby bel today & thought of you.

I was glad when you did your Amy Winehouse impersonation, since I noticed you bear a resemblence to her. But you don’t need drugs, you act funny enough already.

I enjoyed your show even though it was right after South Park, which is most inane.

The episode about your mother was ridiculous. You have a very warped sense of humor. But I liked positively negative and switching sides and the one where you keep getting abortions from the same doctor who keeps getting you pregnant again. But five episodes isn’t nearly enough.

Didn’t you ever learn the comedian’s rule that you have to keep coming up with new material constantly, even if it means stealing from other comedians?

You should star in some real comedy movies where you can be dirty sexy expose yourself and really funny. We want to see you in more different situations. Jesus is magic was fun, but it was too limited. You need a real vehicle to get all the dykes properly aroused.

But I wanted to tell you that based on your song I was the first one to find out that Ernst Jelinek was a prominent Bavarian Jew whose young daughter was named Mercedes, and the car company was named for her in his honor. That is why the Mercedes is really a car that belongs to yuze.

I dream you and I are living on a lesbian kibbutz in Israel together, only we don’t need to do any work that we don’t enjoy or feel like doing, everyone else is happy to do it for us and to serve us hand and foot graciously and happily. And we’re mostly nude or wearing minimal loose white draping cloths that are very comfortable, and there’s a pool where we always skinnydip and make love in a room and bed similar to the one in Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet.

I have pics of you all over my apartment, you’re beautiful and sexy. I was so excited when I discovered you! It was high time, too. Plus I’m always visiting your pics online. I especially like the one where you’re sodomizing a cute little dog, and the ones where you’re dressed like a slut with stiletto heels and a ravaged Rape Awareness t-shirt on, as well as the one where you’re peeking out of a giant vagina dressed like a basketball-playing negress hooker, oh- and the ones where you look like a turkish man with a mustache, and the one in the bathroom mirror with a dago tee.

Your sister Laura is such a fox. I can’t believe the two of you are sisters, that there are two of you. I would like to see more incestuous lezbo action between you, and more cleavage.

I like when you wear old navy apparel and I have the green jersey with the gold stripes too, I always wear it and think of you. I like when you wear tees and jeans and I always wore converse all stars as a little girl, but now I know I’m too old. But you’re not, and I feel a bond with you.

I saw you at Northwestern a few years ago, I was lucky to get front row center seats. I got to look directly up at you up close and personal, tall and well-built. I had all my sarahfenalia with me to get autographed, but then I was scared to go backstage since there were around a million people there and no one else appeared to be. So my fantasies for a lesbian encounter remained that. I hope to catch your show at the Venue in August, but you better have fresh material. You’re funny though, and I’ll still be happy just to see you, and I hope to meat you someday.

PS Natalie Portman has a few hardcore pics of her online, one giving a big blowjob to Devendra Banhart, another where she’s being bouffed by Andy Samberg, and yet another where she’s fisting a bottle blonde bimbo with a big smile on her face. Why don’t you try to be more like her? I’d especially like to see your full frontal nudity and gen-u-ine explicit lezbo acts where we know beyond a doubt it’s you..

Keep it Up, Sarah!!
Love Always,
Patty

I don’t think there’s a Harrahs or Horseshoe or whatever it’s called in Chicago proper. The only one I knew about is in Hammond Indiana, unless they just built a new one here. So I checked and sure enough it is the Horseshoe in Hammond Sarah’s appearing at. I realize you can Get to Hammond from Chicago, but I wouldn’t go there if she were the Queen of England! I think Sarah should appear at Northwestern again, since that’s practically within walking distance of me, and then you get a much better quality audience. But hey, if she’s booked for a gig she’s not gonna turn it down, right? I know she’s played House of Blues in Vegas, and we have one of those here, even thougb I realize it’s not the same thing. Wonder if she’d ever play there? But she should definitely play Northwestern, even though she probably doesn’t make nearly as much loose change as at a big casino! Still, Viva Sarah…

I’m 17.
Probably too young to get in, right?
I was looking and couldn’t find out for sure though.

Question: Why the hell are there so many tickets left for the Hammond show? Pathetic. Move the show to central Chicago or cancel it. It’s embarrassing Sarah. Won’t even come close to a half full house. Ugh! Come on people…get up and drive to Indiana!

That Patty person scares me. If I was Sarah I would definitely avoid going to Northwestern again.

This is NOT in Chicago. I don’t even understand why she would perform there. I have been waiting for her to come to a Chicago venue for years now. I understand a gig is a gig but why not show Chicago some love? (and Northwestern isn’t exactly Chicago either, even though it’s much closer than Hammond, IN.)

It may not technically be Chicago, but Chicago is like 5 minutes away so I don’t understand what the big deal is. There are people that live on the East side as well and they usually have to drive up North for most venues… one little trip is not gonna kill ya.

Yeah alright, I’m seeing big ads now on the bus and in the paper, and read an official article that Harrahs is attracting top names and big acts. The only thing is that you don’t knowingly and intentionally go to Indiana. My only memory is like twice in the seventies and eighties crossing the Skyway, which was smelly industrial and scary. Maybe they’ve cleaned it up and improved it since then? But she should still play a regular comedy club in Chicago if she hasn’t recently, even though they may not advertise it as much and she makes a surprise cameo (the length of her current show, in other words about twenty minutes!) or someplace like House of Blues here, which I’m informed by an expert has lousy acoustics, but what of it and at least she’s not a musical performance while perhaps strumming a few novelty ditties, of which my favorite is “Nobody’s Perfect”. But I’m sure she makes much more filthy lucre playing Harrahs than the chump change by Northwestern, practically a charity benefit. Really she should play Centre East or the Northshore Center for Performing Arts in Skokie. Then she would have the proper audience and milieu, and yours truly would Definitely go to see her there. So when is she, or Why Not?

I’m going to see Sarah tonight at the Venue. The Horseshoe Casino just had a very very large makeover and has had some great shows. I saw Bette Midler there and it was great. I’m from Chicago and it’s just right off of the skyway. I don’t see what you all are complaining about. It’s not like she is performing in Southern Indiana in the middle of a cornfield.

Something to say?
