Sarah’s long conversation with Andy Cohen 11/20/14

Posted by Gator on November 21st, 2014

As a recent stop on his current book promotion tour, garrulous talk show host Andy Cohen spent over an hour yesterday being interviewed by Sarah on stage at the Montalban Theater in Los Angeles. It’s fun to watch Sarah asking questions rather than answering them, and of course it treats fans to many moments of her spontaneous wit.  It was all streamed live on Bravo and the tape is still posted for your watching pleasure.

Sarah hosts and curates ep1 of new series

Posted by Gator on November 19th, 2014

No executives interfering with the comedy artist’s vision. That’s a key to the new comedy variety series, Rubberhead. (“Live from Rubberhead” was originally slated to be one of the new series streaming on Xbox until Microsoft shut down its whole Xbox Entertainment studios.) As you can see from this Rolling Stone article, Sarah chose the contributors for the first episode, and she’s in it, too. The episode taped in front of a live studio audience in July 2014.

By Jon Blistein | November 18, 2014

Sarah Silverman corralled a whole bunch of funny friends, including Seth Rogen, John C. Reilly, Key & Peele and Tig Notaro, to contribute to the inaugural episode of Rubberhead, a new comedy variety show from Vimeo and the comedy collective JASH.

Silverman hosts the first episode, and as she succinctly introduces it in the trailer, “Welcome to a night of weird.” The succession of clips includes everything from Rogen and Silverman engaging in some some high-octane cop action to a man with a weirdly shaped head chucking a Big Gulp at an innocent pedestrian. If you want all that — plus a bouncy castle — the entire 45-minute episode is available to buy now for just $4.99.

In a statement, creator Daniel Kellison described Rubberhead as “a no holds-barred show without the middleman. What you see is the comedy created wholly by the artist, without interference from executives or networks or standards and practices. We put our full trust in our artist partners. Nothing is off-limits.”

Silverman hand-picked the contributors for Rubberhead’s first episode, scoring not just big names, but a stacked roster of comedy nerd all-stars as well, including Nathan Fielder (of Nathan for You and the creator of “Dumb Starbucks”), Todd Glass, Brett Gelman, Lauren Lapkus, Harris Wittels, Paul Rust, Shelby Fero and Natasha Leggero. Charlyne Yi also contributed a new animation, and rapper 2Chainz even makes a cameo in a skit with Key & Peele.

Here’s one (very funny) sketch, featuring Sarah and Seth Rogen as cops on a mission.

And here’s the trailer for the show.

Posted by Gator on November 11th, 2014

Comedian/writer/actor Paul F. Tompkins has a web talk series called Speakeasy, and Sarah was his November 10 episode guest. Of course he talks to her about their days working on Mr. Show, but the interview also covers such standard topics as her We Are Miracles Emmy, her feelings about babies, and more. The interview is 18m:26s. Plus, in a separate 3 minute clip they play a game called Baked or Faked, in which Sarah is asked to identify whether marijuana strain names are genuine or made up.
