Tix: At Largo 10/9/14

Posted by Gator on August 31st, 2014

When she’s available, Sarah does a monthly “Sarah Silverman and Friends” show at Largo in Los Angeles. Her next one is scheduled for October 9. Click pic to order tickets. (Tickets are a bit more expensive than usual in October, with the night being a benefit for Americans United.)

By the way, on Saturday night of that same week (October 11), Sarah’s boyfriend, Michael Sheen, will be onstage at Largo being interviewed by comedian/talk host Jeff Garlin, as Garlin records an episode of his podcast, “By the Way.”  Wonder if Garlin will ask anything about Sarah (whom he’s a friend of and has co-starred with in film).

Insights on Sarah’s 8/19 sets with Brody Stevens

Posted by Gator on August 28th, 2014

We already reported to you that Sarah and Brody Stevens took time between Oddball Festival dates to do some New York City club appearances on August 19. Today Jeffrey Gurian talked in his column about having attended their performances that night at Gotham:

…From there I jumped over to the Gotham Comedy Club to see Comedy Juice which is an amazing show. Brody Stevens was there; he was in town touring with the Oddball Comedy Festival. He did great– you know he’s very strange and unusual — and at the end of his set, a guy was walking through the crowd and Brody made fun of him saying that he looked like Dr. Drew. Well, oddly enough, it really was Dr. Drew Pinsky. And Brody, who makes no secret of his mental illness stayed on after the red light so he could tell Dr. Drew from the stage what drug he’s currently on, and what the dosage was. Dr. Drew gave him a thumbs up and told him he was doing well.

That night, Sarah Silverman came in and did a great set!  She was working out some new material– and she even brought her notes on stage with her.   Somebody in the audience made a comment– and she told the audience– you should be excited to see a comedian working out new material because it’s not often that you see that. And she got huge applause for saying that. After she was finished, she split immediately because Sarah doesn’t really hang out unless she’s at the Comedy Cellar.

Chappelle joins Oddball in CT

This lineup for the August 23 Hartford, Connecticut, stop on the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival tour was already amazing (what the New York Times afterward called “a murderer’s row of comics”).  Then, after listed closer Louis C.K. finished, there appeared an astonishing bonus: Dave Chappelle– not part of the Oddball tour this year– came on to do the night’s closing set.  Last year, Chappelle, a headliner on the 2013 Oddball tour, clashed with the audience and walked off, later vowing never to return to Hartford. So you could say Sarah was part of a historic night of comedy in Hartford yesterday.

Surprise NYC appearances 8/19/14

Posted by Gator on August 20th, 2014

Since Sarah’s in the New York area (between her Holmdel, NJ, appearance last Sunday and this Friday’s Wantagh, NY, tour date), she apparently made a last minute decision yesterday to go with fellow Oddball festival comic Brody Stevens to do sets in several New York City venues.

It didn’t get announced until day-of (and we didn’t find out until we got home from being in the Radio City audience of America’s Got Talent), so we’re sorry we didn’t get to warn you.

One of the jokes in her Oddball tour set involves selecting a man from the audience.

That dark spot under Sarah’s right eye is the bruise from her basketball incident (see her August 10 posting), which she said gave her a concussion.
