Sarah honors Rivers at Power Women fete 12/10/14

Posted by Gator on December 11th, 2014

Sarah was one of many celebrities at yesterday’s 2014 Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Breakfast.  But while most were there to watch, Sarah was a featured speaker, introducing a video tribute to the late Joan Rivers. A transcript of her speech is here, or you can watch it yourself below.

Melissa Rivers, Joan’s daughter, also spoke.  Shonda Rhimes received the Sherry Lansing Award, which recognizes industry pioneers and leaders. Scholarship were given to 18 inner-city girls who participate in THR‘s Mentorship Program, which pairs girls with leading figures from the entertainment industry.

About the event, Sarah tweeted, “Had to get up at the crack o my ass but twas worth it. @shondarhimes’ speech made me a better man.”

Perez Hilton posted admiration for Sarah’s morning glamour: “There was Sarah, who would’ve been the most demure in her simple black dress if not for her pneumatic cleavage!”

The Women in Entertainment breakfast coincides annually with the publication of THR‘s “Women in Entertainment: Power 100” list. The breakfast was held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.

You can see the complete “Power 100” list here. (No, Sarah is not on the list.)

Video: Sarah on “My Drunk Kitchen”

Posted by Gator on December 4th, 2014

Hannah Hart is the host, since 2011, of this cooking series, that features food, alcohol, and other fun. 

As Hart wrote on the back cover of her cookbook/memoir based on the show, “it will make you laugh and drink . . . I mean think . . . about life.”

Since Sarah does not drink, in this episode both are under the influence of well bred marijuana.

Sarah’s long conversation with Andy Cohen 11/20/14

Posted by Gator on November 21st, 2014

As a recent stop on his current book promotion tour, garrulous talk show host Andy Cohen spent over an hour yesterday being interviewed by Sarah on stage at the Montalban Theater in Los Angeles. It’s fun to watch Sarah asking questions rather than answering them, and of course it treats fans to many moments of her spontaneous wit.  It was all streamed live on Bravo and the tape is still posted for your watching pleasure.

Sarah hosts and curates ep1 of new series

Posted by Gator on November 19th, 2014

No executives interfering with the comedy artist’s vision. That’s a key to the new comedy variety series, Rubberhead. (“Live from Rubberhead” was originally slated to be one of the new series streaming on Xbox until Microsoft shut down its whole Xbox Entertainment studios.) As you can see from this Rolling Stone article, Sarah chose the contributors for the first episode, and she’s in it, too. The episode taped in front of a live studio audience in July 2014.

RollingStoneLogoSarah Silverman, Seth Rogen, Key & Peele Kick Off New Web Variety Series

By Jon Blistein | November 18, 2014

Sarah Silverman corralled a whole bunch of funny friends, including Seth Rogen, John C. Reilly, Key & Peele and Tig Notaro, to contribute to the inaugural episode of Rubberhead, a new comedy variety show from Vimeo and the comedy collective JASH.

Silverman hosts the first episode, and as she succinctly introduces it in the trailer, “Welcome to a night of weird.” The succession of clips includes everything from Rogen and Silverman engaging in some some high-octane cop action to a man with a weirdly shaped head chucking a Big Gulp at an innocent pedestrian. If you want all that — plus a bouncy castle — the entire 45-minute episode is available to buy now for just $4.99.

In a statement, creator Daniel Kellison described Rubberhead as “a no holds-barred show without the middleman. What you see is the comedy created wholly by the artist, without interference from executives or networks or standards and practices. We put our full trust in our artist partners. Nothing is off-limits.”

Silverman hand-picked the contributors for Rubberhead’s first episode, scoring not just big names, but a stacked roster of comedy nerd all-stars as well, including Nathan Fielder (of Nathan for You and the creator of “Dumb Starbucks”), Todd Glass, Brett Gelman, Lauren Lapkus, Harris Wittels, Paul Rust, Shelby Fero and Natasha Leggero. Charlyne Yi also contributed a new animation, and rapper 2Chainz even makes a cameo in a skit with Key & Peele.

Here’s one (very funny) sketch, featuring Sarah and Seth Rogen as cops on a mission.

And here’s the trailer for the show.

 

Video: interviewed on Tompkins show 11/10/14

Posted by Gator on November 11th, 2014

Comedian/writer/actor Paul F. Tompkins has a web talk series called Speakeasy, and Sarah was his November 10 episode guest. Of course he talks to her about their days working on Mr. Show, but the interview also covers such standard topics as her We Are Miracles Emmy, her feelings about babies, and more. The interview is 18m:26s. Plus, in a separate 3 minute clip they play a game called Baked or Faked, in which Sarah is asked to identify whether marijuana strain names are genuine or made up.

And here’s what they’re calling a “bonus” Sarah clip.

Sarah’s Happy voice in cartoon short

Posted by Gator on October 23rd, 2014

Sarah voices one of the lead characters in The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas, a cartoon short that addresses the social concern: Is economic inequality growing? 

In addition to Sarah in the role of Happy, the film features Amy Poehler (Sunshine), Maya Rudolph (Giggles), Sarah Silverman (Happy), Billy Eichner (Lollipop) and Andy Richter (Dough Vanshaw). The cartoon runs a little under six minutes, and is directed by Adam McKay.

Shalomlife reported that the 46 year old director–after spending most of his 20s clueless about the government decisions on trade policy, wages, pollution and war–became interested in economics and finance. “Once anyone starts looking at the underlying economic reasons behind these bizarre choices they make a lot more sense. It doesn’t mean it’s any less frustrating or infuriating but at least I started seeing the dog isn’t chasing his tail just to chase his tail, there’s a liver treat tied to it,” McKay explained.

The Unbelievably Sweet Alpacas is part of a new film series titled We the Economy: 20 Short Films You Can’t Afford to Miss. The series features films that pair comedians with directors, as well as economic advisors, and presents them in an array of different styles and lengths.
