Video: Sarah in Single Shot episode 8

Posted by Gator on September 14th, 2014



After not appearing in episode seven of Jerry Seinfeld’s new online mini-series, Single Shot, Sarah does have a segment in episode 8 (“Sexy Talk”), which premiered 9/11/14. She does a great recollection of being ten and watching Woody’ Allen’s Sleeper repeatedly, anxiously questioning those around her. But don’t tune out when that story’s over. Five seconds later (after Louis C.K.’s piece), Sarah will query toward the kitchen, “Who do we have to blow for menus?” Clicking the pic takes you straight to Sarah’s segment.

Or you can watch the whole episode (less than 3 minutes) at the CCGC site or at Crackle.com.

Go here to see her in other episodes of Single Shot.

Audio: Sarah with Sheen during 9/10/14 podcast

Posted by Gator on September 13th, 2014




Chris Hardwick’s famed Nerdist podcast featured Michael Sheen on September 10 (Episode 569), and Sarah “chimes in periodically.”  Go here to listen.

[The voice you sometimes hear in the background is Hardwick’s colleague, Kyle Clark. Also, before the interview began, Hardwick mentioned that he enjoyed “hanging out with Sarah” on the Oddball tour. Hardwick is one of the comedians in the lineup on some of the Oddball Comedy Festival tour dates. At the very end of the interview they briefly get back to that topic.]

Below are transcriptions or summaries of some of the Sarah moments, in case you don’t want to listen to the podcast straight through. (It is 1h:38m long.) But fans could get a good sense of the personality of Sarah’s boyfriend (sharp mind, sharp wit) by listening to the whole interview. [Revealing example: Describing whether his father, who is a professional Jack Nicholson impersonator, can do Nicholson’s voice, Sheen says, “What he lacks in specificity he makes up for in commitment.”]


Video: Sarah & Whitney backstage 9/5/14

Posted by Gator on September 11th, 2014


Some funny and some sweet moments in this odd interview done by odd interviewer “Nardwuar” backstage September 5 at the Auburn, Washington, show on the Oddball Festival tour. Nardwuar is a celebrity interviewer from Vancouver, Canada.

Whitney calls Sarah “my hero” and her “spirit animal,” and says, “I sincerely love her.” Sarah declares, “Nobody deserves success more than Whitney Cummings. She works her ass off. She’s hilarious. She’s got the skin of a dove.” And more. 

The ad in the video doesn’t let us leap to just Sarah’s segment, so you’ll have to manually go to the 3m:15s timecode, where Sarah enters.

Add this to your “Sarah’s Peeves” list: At one point Sarah chastised Nardwuar for just sticking the microphone in front of her after making a statement but without asking a question. On August 25, she scolded interviewer Giuliana Rancic for doing the same thing on the Emmy red carpet.

Also in the video: Sarah praises radio personality and Monk writer/producer Tom Scharpling. 




Sarah recalls SNL as anniversary approaches

Posted by Gator on September 11th, 2014

Looking toward the upcoming 40th anniversary season of Saturday Night Live, grantland.com published on August 21 an article called “My ‘SNL’: Testimonials From Cast Members Who Lived It.” Here’s the section contributed by Sarah:


Denver Post interview pre-Oddball

Posted by Gator on September 7th, 2014

Anticipating tonight’s appearance at the Morrison, Colorado, Oddball Comedy Festival stop (Red Rocks Amphitheatre), the Denver Post ran this article September 4.


Last year’s inaugural Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival tour was a fun, if dude-centric, affair that presented some of the country’s best comics on a massive stage.

And while stand-up remains a mostly macho profession, this summer’s second annual event, sponsored by Funny or Die, at least balances the equation a bit more with big-name comics such as Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer and Whitney Cummings — alongside guys like Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari, Hannibal Buress, Marc Maron and Chris Hardwick.

All those names and more will be on hand for the Sept. 7 Oddball date at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, but Silverman is easily one of the biggest draws. (more…)

Backtrack: More video of post-Emmy Sarah

Posted by Gator on September 6th, 2014

We hadn’t seen this video of Yahoo interviewing Sarah after her Emmy win. It’s worth the 3m:48s watch for how silly Sarah gets. She also namedrops a bunch of different TV series when she explains that she “loves all TV.”


Sarah & Jimmy tease about Sheen

Posted by Gator on September 6th, 2014

Jimmy Kimmel Live posted more video clips from Sarah’s September 4 appearance. One includes teasing about Sarah’s recent Emmy red carpet encounter; the other features banter about Sarah’s boyfriend, Michael Sheen.  The eonline article provides a good summary and context for these parts of Sarah’s appearance (although it reverses the sequence).


The last time Sarah Silverman appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in November 2013, she came armed with a box of her ex-boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel’s belongings. The comic and the late-night host broke up in July 2008 after five years of dating. The funny duo got back together briefly, only to break up again in March 2009.

It was the first time Silverman had been on Kimmel’s show since he married Molly McNearney.

Kimmel invited the Masters of Sex star to appear on his show Thursday, both to honor Joan Rivers and to get some payback. (more…)
