This is how Sarah appeared on the “Week’s Best Sound Bites” page of Entertainment Weekly magazine’s September 19 issue.


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:


Sarah to host SNL 10/4/14

Posted by Gator on September 10th, 2014

SNLjWell, Sarah tweeted about it so it must be official. She will be hosting Saturday Night Live on October 4, the second episode of the 40th anniversary season.  This will be her first time at SNL since she worked on the show during the 1993-1994 season.

Several posts went up yesterday about the news but were quickly deleted, apparently because they were also reporting that Bill Murray would be hosting the September 27 season premiere. That turns out to have been premature; the host is now being announced as Chris Pratt (of Guardians of the Galaxy), although there is still speculation that Murray will show up sometime during the coming season.

Along with Sarah will be musical guest Maroon 5.


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…)

Sarah praises Joan on Kimmel 9/4/14

Posted by Gator on September 5th, 2014

Appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel last night, Sarah repeated and expanded on her previously-tweeted words of mourning and praise for comedienne Joan Rivers, who had passed away earlier in the day. Below are excerpts from the first media reports about Sarah’s conversation with Kimmel, as well as video of part of the appearance.

Jimmy Kimmel kicked off his show on Thursday by acknowledging the passing of Joan Rivers, before paying tribute to the comedy legend with Sarah Silverman, who said she was “broken inside.”

Silverman emotionally said Rivers was “a hero to me,” adding, “I loved her very much.”

She also noted that even though the comedy legend was 81, “She wasn’t done.”

Silverman felt, “If she were here, she would want us to be funny,” and then zinged Kimmel with a series of Rivers-like jokes, like “Nice tie. Who made it, Calvin Clown” and “I love your hair. You have to tell me where you bought it.”

“I think a lot of people, when they die at 81, you go, ‘Well, she was 81, she had an amazing life.’ But she wasn’t done! She, right now, was at her most vital,” Silverman said.

Silverman rattled off a series of put-downs to ex-boyfriend Kimmel, for Joan – “Oh my God Jimmy, I love your hair. You have to tell me where you bought it” – before sharing a recent interaction she had with her hero. Rivers had sent Silverman an email last week congratulating her on her recent Emmy win.

“She loved with her whole heart, and she also hated with her whole heart, which I loved,” Silverman said.

Sarah talks boobs and boffing to Emmy press

Posted by Gator on August 27th, 2014

In the press room of the 2014 Emmy Awards, Sarah was asked about her role [Helen] on Masters of Sex, including the nudity it involved. Based on reports from eonline, afterellen, zap2it, and others, these were among her responses:

“The part of Helen was mentioned in the pilot episode actually and according to [show creator] Michelle Ashford, they’ve always kind of had me in mind. And then I started fucking the star and it really solidified it. Or maybe not.”

“No, I got my job from auditioning.”

“I feel like I’ve suddenly been doing nudity since I turned 40. They’re just boobs.”

“They’re as low as they’ve ever been, but also as high as they’ll ever be at this point. But yeah, it’s a lot of fun.”
