Sarah in new Seinfeld series episode 1

Posted by Gator on July 24th, 2014


Sarah is one of the three guests in today’s premiere of Jerry Seinfeld’s new series that is a companion to his Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The new series, Single Shots, uses some of the film footage that was cut from the original interviews. (Sarah was the featured interview in episode 1 of season 2 of CCGC.) Each episode of Single Shots is organized around a theme, splicing together never-before-seen theme-related scenes involving several previous CCGC guests.. The first episode is “Donuts.”  Jerry and Sarah take out from K&C Donut and snack as they drive. The Sarah sections of the episode are at timecodes 24s, 1m:19s, and 1m:54s.

The other two guests in the “Donuts” episode are Tina Fey and Brian Regan. The episode is just over two minutes long. New episodes are released each Thursday at noon (ET). You can watch at Crackle.com or ComediansInCarsGettingCoffee.com.

Posted by Gator on July 20th, 2014

093012-SimpsonsBartAndNikkiFox TV’s announcement about the upcoming season of The Simpsons (the animated series’ 26th season) says that Sarah will again appear next season.

Dan Harmon documentary includes Sarah

Posted by Gator on July 20th, 2014


Sarah appears as herself in the documentary, Harmontown, which should come to theaters this fall. The independent film organization “The Orchard” announced July 14 that it has acquired the North American distribution rights for the movie. According to their press release,  Harmontown “ follows Community creator and writer/producer Dan Harmon on tour for his eponymous podcast series. The film features appearances by Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Jason Sudeikis and Joel McHale – among other A-list comics.” We presume Sarah’s appearance is a cameo.

Masters of Sex update (w/first Sarah pic!)

Posted by Gator on July 12th, 2014


Glamour‘s interview (online 7/11/14) of Annaleigh Ashford, who plays Betty on Masters of Sex, features the first Masters photo we’ve gotten that includes Sarah (in her role of Helen). Betty is a lesbian, now married to a man, and Helen is Betty’s ex-lover. (With them in the photo is Greg Grunberg, who plays Betty’s husband.) No word yet on when the first Sarah episode will air.

Here is the portion of the Glamour article that mentions Sarah:

Glamour: And I’m assuming that [Betty] hasn’t backed out of that [marital] arrangement when we’re reunited with her in season two?

Ashford: She’s still married to the Pretzel King and hiding so many secrets from him. Then we meet Betty’s former lover.

Played by Sarah Silverman. I was so pleasantly surprised when they cast her.

I was so excited to work with her. She’s one of the most important comedians of our time. And comedians are often great actors, because as storytellers they’re extremely honest. We had a ball.

Is there anything you can say about the story line?

Only that it’s extremely complicated and unexpected. I think it’s really important that the show is looking at that alternative lifestyle.

Answering Sarah, Hillary condemns court decision

Posted by Gator on July 8th, 2014

Via videotape, Sarah asked Hillary Clinton on July 4 to react to the recent attacks on a woman’s right to choose, and Clinton’s response began by calling the Supreme Court “Hobby Lobby” decision “deeply disturbing.”  A fuller explanation of the exchange is below (from newsbusters.org):


by Jackie Seal
July 8, 2014

          Hillary Clinton sat down with Phoebe Greenwood of the left-wing British newspaper The Guardian last Friday to discuss a range of current event issues, responding to videotaped questions, including some from celebrities and politicians. Comedian Sarah Silverman was among them. Silverman wanted to know what Clinton’s plans will be “with women’s rights stuff” when she’s president. Silverman, referencing the Hobby Lobby decision, wanted to know “what men would ever put up with a woman making laws about what they can and can’t do with their bodies.”

          Greenwood, not hiding her view of the topic, thought it necessary to explain Silverman’s question and framed it as an issue that “follows a raft of quite radical personhood bills that would seek to criminalize abortion and some forms of contraception.” The British journalist touted Clinton as a vocal advocate of women’s rights “for more than 20 years.” Greenwood then asked Clinton what she plans on doing “about these threats” and the “rollback on the right of American women to choose.”

          The presumable presidential hopeful answered the question by calling the Supreme Court’s decision “outrageous” and “disturbing.” Clinton explained that women must continue to fight and the Hobby Lobby ruling is only the beginning. She said women must “keep standing up for women’s rights and particularly reproductive health rights.”

          All in all Clinton’s response was in no way a surprise nor was Silverman’s question. The comedian’s tone suggested her sheer disgust at the conservative male jurists on the Court. Not only that, but Silverman’s question would lead less-informed individuals to believe that the Supreme Court gave Hobby Lobby the right to tell women how to use their bodies, which is completely false, but constitutes the simplistic narrative being pushed by the Left.

          The relevant portion is transcribed below:

SARAH SILVERMAN: What’s your plan when you are president with this women’s right stuff? What men would ever put up with woman making laws about what they can and can’t do with their bodies?

PHOEBE GREENWOOD: Ok, so just to explain to those of us who may not be following this issue as carefully, last week the US Supreme Court ruled that some companies can use their religious beliefs as an exemption from paying for contraception for their employees as is mandated under the affordable healthcare act. This follows a raft of quite radical personhood bills that would seek to criminalize abortion and some forms of contraception. Now, Secretary Clinton, you’ve been campaigning for women’s rights for more than 20 years, what do you plan to do about these threats, this roll back on the right of American women to choose?

HILLARY CLINTON: Well, I think it’s outrageous and the Supreme Court decision was so deeply disturbing because it was the first time that any decision was made which said, basically, that an employer’s religious belief could affect the health care available to women who were in the employment of that employer. Absolutely a terrible decision that has so many implications even beyond the core issues of women’s rights. So we’re going to have to keep our fight up which is what we’ve had to do for so many years in the United States. I’m pro-choice because I think that’s the best position. If someone chooses to have an abortion or chooses not to have an abortion, that is such a highly personal decision that that woman should make based on her own faith beliefs, her own personal situation, her own medical condition. The fight is not over in the United States and we’re going to have to keep standing up for women’s rights and particularly reproductive health rights.
