Interview: After Ellen talks with Sarah

Posted by Gator on May 13th, 2015

Sarah’s upcoming (May 16) appearance at An Evening with Women was the occasion for this After Ellen interview with Sarah, published May 12.

AfterEllenLogoWe got Sarah to answer a few questions before Saturday’s gig, where we can’t wait to see her kill with her smart, hilarious and sexy stand-up.

AfterEllen.com: You’ve been a huge supporter of the LGBT community, as well as part of feminist campaigns like Lady Parts Justice. Why is using your platform as a public figure so important to you?

Sarah Silverman: I grew up in a home where my parents showed us that being part of America was being an active citizen. The fact that I have the chance to reach more people than average just adds to that responsibility to voice my opinions as an American citizen.  Especially when so many of the voiceless are often not being represented.  I grew up in a house filled with posters and buttons my mom wore like, “Question authority,” and “War is not healthy for children and other living things,” and, “It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber.” My dad taught us that paying taxes is an honor and it goes to paving our highways and to schools and to people who need help.  That the more money you make the more money you can afford to give to those things that make America great.

AE: You are very inclusive of gays and lesbians in your work—like on The Sarah Silverman Program, when LGBT people still weren’t visible on TV. Did you ever receive any kind of pushback from networks on those kinds of storylines? (more…)

For your Emmy award-winning HBO special, We Are Miracles, you rocked a jean shorts-and-tights ensemble. I’d cop that look.
It’s funny, because I’ll say to my boyfriend, “You see what I’m wearing? You’re gonna see a whole bunch of little girls wearing this next year.” I’m wearing what Janeane Garofalo wore in 1995. I like the shorts and tights. I feel super comfortable in them; I feel sexual in them. My thighs are free. I’m not thinking about what they look like in jeans or pants. I also want to bring back the skort. I have one skort that I love. I can be free in it and run if I need to and sit like a regular person. (more…)
