Another tribute from Sarah about Wittels

Posted by Gator on March 16th, 2015

Here’s how Megh Wright at Splitsider summarized this video tribute to Harris Wittels by Sarah Silverman Program producer, Rob Schrab– which features Sarah singing.

Not long after posting a compilation of Harris Wittels Vines, Sarah Silverman Program co-creator Rob Schrab uploaded a new video yesterday looking back on Wittels’ work and appearances on the show during his time as a writer. Be warned that this video contains a very NSFW snow sculpture as well as a cover of “First Day of My Life” by Silverman that will break your heart and make your eyes a little misty.

 

Sarah’s sister on ticket in Israeli election

Posted by Gator on March 16th, 2015

In advance of the elections, clusters of right-wing and left-wing parties held rallies in Tel Aviv, with Netanyahu holding one this past Sunday. The Sunday before, nearly twice as many people turned out for rallies of the center and left, with strong representation from the traditional party of the Zionist left, Meretz.

Still, for many Israelis, Meretz remains a voice for the Israeli left that feels disenfranchised by an Israeli political system that has endorsed economic inequality at home and permanent occupation of the Palestinian territories.

The new (“March 13″) issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine has a “News+Notes” sidebar article that¬†includes mention of what Sarah auctioned at this year’s Night of Too Many Stars benefit for autism. Giving away (in advance of tomorrow night’s Comedy Central broadcast of the event that was taped live February 28 at the Beacon Theater in New York) that Sarah’s services treating “you like her parents” were won for a $15,000 bid, the article reports:

Sarah Silverman directed a rant intended for her mother at the two winners: “Mom, you never supported me. When I told you I wanted my face on money, you rolled your eyes. It made me feel like shit.”
