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…)

Looks like Sarah asked and received. Her mustachioed toothbrushing Twitter avatar has been replaced by her book-cover uniformed self, but with the requested red bg.



Flashback: Quinn recalls Sarah’s punches

Posted by Gator on January 4th, 2014

When Rachael Ray showed Sarah’s face to comedian Colin Quinn during the “first thing that comes to your mind” segment of her May 22, 2013, talk show episode, Quinn declared that Sarah “can punch and throw a ball better than many male comedians.”

Posted by Gator on December 10th, 2013

This is the video Kyle Dunnigan just released, recently touted by Sarah on WhoSay as the “best Christmas song ever.”  Think the reaction will be viral, virulent, or both?

Featured in 11/10/13 Sunday NY Times

Posted by Gator on November 9th, 2013

Maureen Dowd had this to say about Sarah in the New York Times this week. (This is the 11/9/13 online version of the op-ed piece that will be in the Sunday Review of tomorrow’s Sunday NY Times.)


HOLLYWOOD — AS Hollywood bowed down to Hillary Clinton, who swept through on a state visit with Chelsea on Friday, there seemed to be only one person here with any reservations.

“I want her to take a voice class,” Sarah Silverman said, as she curled and uncurled like a cat on the gray couch of her modest West Hollywood apartment decorated with taped-up pictures of her family.

“She’s so smart and has so much to say and can change the world but she’s” — here Silverman goes fortissimo — “TALKING LIKE SHE’S YELLING AT YOU. She sounds like a mom who’s yelling at you. And it triggers a response.”

What response does Ted Cruz trigger?

“Terrifying,” she says. “He’s disgusting, and one day I Wikipedia-ed him and I’m like four days older than him and it made me so depressed.”

She does credit conservatives with being deviously effective at naming things. “Citizens United,” she says. “What sounds more beautiful than that?”

The comedian says she’s “not smart enough” about politics, and in an HBO special, airing Nov. 23, she sticks to her usual sweet depravity with jokes about rape, porn, Jews and her family. But she became a hilarious viral force in the last two elections.

In 2008, she did the “Great Schlep” video urging Jews with grandparents in Florida (more…)
