Ross enjoys Sarah’s poker games

Posted by Gator on August 15th, 2014

During an interview for the Tampa Tribune posted August 6 at tbo.com, comedian Jeff Ross, talking about the then-upcoming Oddball Comedy tour, mentioned Sarah’s frequent poker parties. Here’s an excerpt of the interview, starting right after Ross talked about his early days at the New York Friar’s Club playing poker with legendary comedians:

TBO: What is it you like about poker? To me, it sounds cool, but ends up being torturous.

JR: I like to gamble, but beyond that, I usually play with other comedians, and it’s a chance to talk in our own inside language. I love the camaraderie of it. Sarah Silverman has poker games all the time here in L.A., and she always invites comedians, and it’s a lot of laughs. It’s always a good excuse to get stoned and eat pizza.

TBO: Is there pressure to be funny when you’re hanging out with a bunch of comedians?

JR: I think there’s less pressure. I feel more pressure when I’m with regular people because they expect me to be the funny guy. I feel like comedy is my religion, and I love hanging out with other people who believe in the same thing as me. Stand up comics believe in free speech. We like to talk smack to each other and about the world in general.

TBO: Do you get to hang with the other comedians on a tour like this?

JR: Sometimes we share dressing rooms, and we often fly with each other. There’s hours to pass traveling and waiting around. Especially a big traveling festival like this, I really love because normally I’m on the road by myself. On the Oddball Tour we’re like one big unhappy family.

TBO: This tour has such a lineup, it’s crazy.

JEFF ROSS: I can’t believe I’ve become part of a show where I’m a huge fan of all the people on it; it’s like a dream.

Sarah will bed Ashford in Masters of Sex

Posted by Gator on July 25th, 2014


A second photo has been published of Sarah on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, although her episodes have not yet aired. This pic accompanied xfinity’s July 25 TV blog report about a recent press party held on the Masters Of Sex set in Culver City (CA). Here’s an excerpt, which includes new tidbits, including the reveal that Sarah’s Helen character will “get horizontal” with Annaleigh Ashford’s Betty:

     As Betty in the first season, we met the hard edged prostitute who helped Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) in the early stages of his sex study. Later in the season, however, we found that, despite being a lesbian, Betty had married pretzel mogul Gene (Greg Grunberg) and was putting her sexuality in the closet for the sake of having a more grounded, satisfying life.
     Now in Season 2, Betty is back and while she’s as sassy and ballsy as ever, she’s also still in a marriage that may satisfy her wardrobe but isn’t satisfying her sexually. That is, until Sarah Silverman’s Helen shows up and a new, closeted romance, is going to start.
     At a press party held on the Masters Of Sex set in Culver City, the actress gushed about working with Silverman. “First of all, she’s like one of the most magical people to be with on set.” And while we’re used to the comedic side of Silverman, it’s that side that helps her work her magic in the world of drama, too. “What makes great comedians great is they’re so honest,” Ashford said. “And she’s so honest and beautiful as an actress and just so giving.”
     The actress, known for her Broadway work in such shows as Kinky Boots and Hair as well as the upcoming “You Can’t Take It With You,” did also reveal that Betty and Helen do get horizontal in the course of their storyline but, perhaps to alleviate any nervousness, ended up singing a song from “Gypsy” with her co-star. Ashford recounted that in regards to their costumes for the scene she said to Silverman, “’You look like Louise, and I look like June from Gypsy.’ And [Silverman] turned around and went, ‘If momma was married…’ We sang the whole song! She knew the harmonies. We sang literally the whole song!”


Sarah doodles for girl power

School of Doodle,” an empowerment-of-girls pro-arts-education organization, has launched a Kickstarter campaign that includes among many available premiums, an original doodle by Sarah. Three ways to get a Sarah doodle: $50 gets you the coloring book, which includes all the celebrity doodles, one of which is by Sarah. $150 gets you an 11″ x 14″ print of Sarah’s doodle. And $5000 could get you the single signed original of Sarah’s doodle, if it is still available.

School of Doodle calls itself “A peer-to-peer, self-directed learning lab dedicated to activating girls’ imaginations through entertainment, education and community.” The fundraising runs until August 23, 2014.

Sarah parties with David Spade

Posted by Gator on July 24th, 2014



E! reported yesterday that Sarah attended the David Spade birthday party:

We’d love to wish David Spade a big happy birthday, but we don’t think it would compare to the well wishes he got last night. The funny guy celebrated his 50th with a small dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles that included Chris Rock, Judd Apatow, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Steve Martin, according to a source.
