Sarah Attached to Clown

Posted by Gator on August 30th, 2012

Hollywoodreporter.com says Showtime is developing a TV series based on the  2010 movie Punching the Clown, and that Sarah will be an Executive Producer. The site quotes the Village Voice’s statement that  the award-winning film “may be the funniest movie ever made about trying to hold on to one’s artistic integrity in an image-obsessed world.”  Sounds like a good fit for Sarah. But as the fate of Susan 313 demonstrates, “in development” does not always turn out to be “on the air.”

Oral History Coming

USA Today today touted Yael Kohen’s upcoming book, We Killed: The Rise of Women in American Comedy (A Very Oral History). Yes, that’s Sarah among the comics on the cover. Have to wait for the October release to read what she says.

The Fate of Susan 313

Posted by Gator on August 28th, 2012

A year ago (18 August 2011), digitalspy.com reported that tv networks were in a bidding war over Sarah’s then yet-to-be produced tv series, eventually titled Susan 313. Among the executive producers at the helm were Hollywood heavyweights Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, with 20th Century Fox TV joining their Imagine Television. Subsequently, it was reported that NBC had a “put-pilot” commitment for the series, which means the network would have to pay a financial penalty if it didn’t air the pilot. Alas, NBC chose not move it forward to their fall 2012 season.

One columnist, lamenting that the promising program would not air, described it as having been “created by Sarah Silverman and her frequent collaborators Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder, Susan 313 starred Silverman as a newly-single woman returning to her old life and apartment after a long-term relationship falls apart. Silverman recruited talented comedy buddies like Tig Notaro, June Diane Raphael, and Harris Wittels and Lost’s Ken Leung to round out the cast.” Jeff Goldblum was signed for the pilot to play her ex (i.e., the Jimmy Kimmel role in this “loosely based on her life” chronicle).

Leaving Pablove Charity Event – 8/26/12

Posted by Gator on August 28th, 2012

Here’s a couple minutes of Sarah leaving the Celebrity Celebrity charity event August 26.

Replying to an autograph seeker who asks, “So do you think Prince Harry owes England an apology?” she says, “No, for what, having a human body? Being betrayed by a recently made friend?”

To someone who comments on her “no moleste” shirt, she credits it to comedian/writer Tig Notaro’s show, and when Sarah, calling Tig “the greatest comedian,” asks the girl if she knows Tig, Sarah’s dumbfounded when the girl refuses to speak.

Paul Bradley’s blog entry at laweekly.com (27 Aug 2012) about August 26th’s Pablove charity Celebrity Celebrity event says almost nothing about Sarah’s participation, but she’s in three pics from the night in Pablove’s Facebook album (click pic to enlarge).

On Radio with Kimmel and Corolla

Posted by Gator on August 28th, 2012

From 1995 to 2005, comedian Adam Corolla was a co-host on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s call-in radio program, Loveline. During that time, Sarah (often with then-beau Jimmy Kimmel) made five appearances on the program—all worthwhile listens.

Giovanni Giorgio, Superfan of Adam Corolla and host of the Corolla fancast “Get It On” (GIO), recently posted a compilation of Sarah’s first four Loveline shows (4/9/02, 11/5/02, 10/9/03, 9/20/04) as episode 167 of GIO. Go to the mp3 here to listen, but jump to timecode 14m:33s for where Sarah segments begin. [total length is over 6 hours, all featuring Sarah].

Then GIO Episode 168 is dedicated to Jimmy Kimmel’s Corolla appearances, but within that almost 22 hour mp3 is Sarah’s last Loveline (timecode 17h:24m:00s to 18h:55m:00s), and two Sarah appearances on the Adam Corolla Show (Adam with Sarah as guest is18h:56m to 19h:08m; Jimmy (subbing for Adam) with Sarah is 20h:33m:50s to 21h:12m:12s).
