Showtime says Sarah will try to have baby

Posted by Gator on June 26th, 2015

Here is the release Showtime issued this week in which they confirmed not only that Sarah is in season 3 of Masters of Sex, but specifically that she will be in a multi-episode story arc involving the attempts of her character (Helen) and her lover (Betty) to have a baby.

SARAH SILVERMAN RETURNS TO MASTERS OF SEX FOR MULTI-EPISODE ARC

Third Season Premieres July 12 At 10 PM ET/PT On Showtime®

LOS ANGELES, CA – June 24,FromS2_HelenAndBettyWlogo 2015 — Emmy®-winning comedian and actress Sarah Silverman will reprise her role as “Helen” on the third season of MASTERS OF SEX premiering July 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime. Starring Emmy and Golden Globe® nominee Michael Sheen and Emmy nominee Lizzy Caplan as real-life pioneers of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson, MASTERS OF SEX chronicles their unusual lives, romance and pop-culture trajectory.  Masters and Johnson’s research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine. In the third season, the reunited Helen and Betty (Tony® Award winner Annaleigh Ashford) are trying to have a baby, which unquestionably proves quite a challenge for a lesbian couple in 1966.

Season three of the series is set when the famed duo Masters  and Johnson are dealing with the glare of the national spotlight as their sex study is finally unveiled.  Masters and Johnson’s work will have a profound impact on contemporary relationships, especially their own evolving three-way “marriage” with Masters’ wife Libby (Caitlin FitzGerald).   The series is an adaptation of Thomas Maier’s book Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How To Love.  MASTERS OF SEX was developed for television by Michelle Ashford (The Pacific) who also serves as an executive producer. In addition, the series is executive produced by Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Amy Lippman, Dave Flebotte,  and Judith Verno.  Michael Sheen, Tammy Rosen and Thomas Maier serve as producers. MASTERS OF SEX is produced by Sony Pictures Television. 

Two-time Emmy winner Sarah Silverman is a versatile performer with a repertoire that includes everything from television and film to stand-up comedy and iconic online videos. She added author to this list when she released The New York Times Bestseller, The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee.  She was awarded a 2014 Primetime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special category for her comedy special We Are Miracles, which was also nominated for Outstanding Variety Special, and she received a WGA nomination as well.  An album of the special was released in September 2014 which earned her a 2015 Grammy® nomination for Best Comedy Album.  Silverman will next be seen in the lead role of the drama feature I Smile Back which debuted at Sundance earlier this year and in the feature filmAshby opposite Mickey Rourke and Emma Roberts.  She recently wrapped production on a comedy pilot for HBO which she will executive produce and star in. Sarah Silverman received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series for The Sarah Silverman Program, and was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Monk. She won an Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics as a writer of a song for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Silverman’s feature film credits include A Million Ways to Die in the West,  Wreck-It Ralph, Take This Waltz, and Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic. Additionally, Silverman is a part of JASH, a comedy collective on YouTube featuring original content by Silverman (and friends Michael Cera, Tim & Eric and Reggie Watts).

“Two-Minute Index” By Sarah Silverman

I always confuse NRA & NPR. Totally different tote bags. * Sometimes when I’m really lonely I talk to myself, but I call myself “you guys.” * There’s no way my heart can handle what’s in an email labeled ELEPHANTS REUNITING AFTER 20 YRS. * Nothing’s more attractive than an unending monologue about your shortcomings. * My dog is right. The bathroom is not a library. * I hate drama = I love drama. * Unfortunate is the man who employs baby talk. * A bull in pretty much any shop is gonna be a mess. * Saying “RELAX” is maybe the least relaxing word you can say to someone. * I still wake up so jazzed that I don’t have to go to school. * Some of the most misogynistic men I know are women. * “I hate clouds,” declared my dad out of nowhere. * Heartbreaking converges with crazy cute at the sight of tiny crutches. * The two saddest consecutive sentences: “He just wants attention. Don’t give it to him.” * Behind every great big bully is a great big bully. * People in cults don’t call their cults cults. * Let’s not wait for the apocalypse or an alien attack to love each other, y’all. * You don’t have to do what’s expected of you. * Just a quick reminder: other people exist. * It bothers me that I’m not your entire world. * We are all 100% going to die someday. * Your fancy frankenstein cross-breed vanity dog can’t breathe you obnoxious boob. * Spoiled rich kids who’ve never heard the word “no” are such a delight to be around in general. * Vote “No” on this spelling of Geoff. * You had me ‘til Hello.

Sarah inspires Prairie Business

Posted by Gator on March 7th, 2014

022814PrairieBusinessSarah was the angle used by the editor of Prairie Business Magazine in her February 28 forward to the March issue. (We’ve included just the first few paragraphs.) And no, there is no interview or other mention of Sarah in the magazine.

One of my favorite and, I think, most poignant recent observations regarding how far women have come in leveling the field in the workplace comes from comedian Sarah Silverman.

She tells her audiences that the biggest mistake anyone can make is to tell girls they can be anything they want when they grow up. This is a mistake, not because it’s not true, but because girls would never think otherwise if someone didn’t say so, she says.

Of course, even a few short decades ago, this was not the case. And to some extent today, women continue to battle glass ceilings in terms of pay and in job availability. As a female stand-up comedian, an historically male-dominated profession, Silverman is no doubt herself no stranger to gender-related professional battles. But her success in today’s comedy industry has paved the way for a slew of up-and-coming female comics who seek to be recognized for their quick wit and originality rather than their gender.  (more…)
