On Earth Day, April 22, Sarah was among many celebrities who attended and appeared at “Keep It Clean,” a live comedy benefit for Waterkeeper Alliance.  Among the other A-listers there were Martin Short, Kevin Nealon, and Tig Notaro. The benefit was at Avalon Hollywood. The Waterkeeper Alliance was founded in 1999 by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and several Waterkeeper organizations. It is “a global movement of on-the-water advocates who patrol and protect over 100,000 miles of rivers, streams and coastlines in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa.”

Sarah apologizes

Posted by Gator on April 14th, 2015

In the wake of Al Martin’s video clarifying that Sarah’s story accusing him of sexist pay practices was not accurate, Sarah issued this statement to Salon.com:

pensivePOh goodness.  All I can say is I remember that story exactly how I said it. I know that Todd called the club earlier in the day to let them know I was in town if they wanted me to do a set.  They put me up for a 15 min spot just after Todd’s 15 min spot. I didn’t expect to get paid, that’s not why I was there, but when I got off stage Al, the sweet club owner, paid me 10 bucks and I signed the payment sheet. I was like, oh, nice.  I inferred from that that this was a paid spot not a guest spot.  Either way I would have been fine.  Then when Todd pointed out that he received 60 dollars for the same spot I went back inside and asked Al why Todd got sixty dollars and I got ten. That’s when he certainly could have said “Because it was a guest spot, Sarah.  I was just being super nice and gave you ten dollars for cab money.” But instead, (and I will always remember this exactly how he said it because it was unbelievably hilarious) he said, “Oh- did you want a $60 spot?”

My regret is that I mentioned Al by name- it should have been a nameless, faceless anecdote and he has always been lovely to me.

This is also HARDLY an example of the wage gap and can only do that very true reality a terrible disservice if I were trying to make it one.  When I was interviewed by Levo, they asked me “Do you remember a time you were paid less for the same job” and this story, being just that, popped into my head.   To Al, I truly am sorry to bring you into this as you employ women and pay them the same as the men I’m sure.  To the maniacs who want to use this as a chit against women’s issues, I ask that you please don’t.  Because that would be super shitty. Feel free to aim your vitriol at me but leave this issue of working women out of it, K?

The end

Video: Martin says Sarah had “talent gap”

Posted by Gator on April 10th, 2015

040815AlMartinVidcapIn response to the story Sarah told in her interview for Levo’s Ask4More campaign (promoting equal pay for women), Al Martin, former owner of the New York Comedy Club, posted a video defending himself. In it, he says while Todd Barry had been on the bill that night, Sarah was a “guest” (unscheduled walk-on), and that guests were customarily not paid. He says when she asked for pay, he was being considerate by giving her “cabfare.” He goes on to list the many women in his life as evidence that he does treat women fairly.

Martin posted his video response on the New York Comedy World Facebook page, with the following printed message:
My response to Sarah Silverman’s attempt to slander me on the internet yesterday…Not as high quality as hers, but I tried to make a selfie video with the FACTS…And to anyone who wishes to share I would be greatly appreciative.

Sarah didn’t write the rape prevention tips

Posted by Gator on March 27th, 2015

We’re finally giving in and saying something about the week-long, expanding online “discussion” of Sarah’s March 20 tweet of these “rape prevention tips.”  And that’s only because there is so much online about it, we don’t want people who come here for Sarah news to think we don’t cover ‘Everything Sarah.’

The simple facts are:
1. It’s a re-tweet (See the “RT” in the tweet?); she didn’t write it.  It’s years old.
2. Most of the people writing online with aghast objections are criticizing Sarah for writing them. Why even respond to people who are that dumb?
