At the Hulu Upfront, Elite Daily had the chance to speak with Sarah Silverman about her upcoming show and the message she wants to get out to millennials who are experiencing the jarring effects of politics for the first time.

Sarah spewed her words of wisdom for Gen Y and advised us to “be loud. Don’t get tired because that’s part of I think they’re doing, they’re rope-a-doping us, they’re trying to tire us out. We’re bombarded by daily atrocities and it’s easy to just want to curl up and watch you know, ‘Pretty Little Liars’ or something… do that sometimes, sure, but never stop speaking out, showing up, using your vote and, you know what’s more effective than anything? You know we’re not seen as people or citizens. we’re seen as consumers, really look at where you spend your money there’s a Ma and Pa alternative to pretty much everything you buy.”

Silverman went on to dissect the differences between big businesses and their smaller counterparts and how millennials need to take note and take action:

“Switch from a bank to a credit union, it’ll change your life zero. I mean the only difference is the rates are lower at credit unions, we just don’t know about credit unions because the government and the banks that have trillions of dollars don’t want us there. Banks are for profit endeavors and that’s why they fund Big Oil, which we also don’t need the only reason we have it is so we’re beholden to more Big Oil to make oil billionaires into oil trillionaires there’s no real reason for it. You know what creates jobs? Wind energy, solar energy, there are so many other things we don’t need to rely on it the reason why they’re building pipelines is to force us to rely on it for decades to come and by relying on banks we’re complicit in that. Move to credit unions.”

While this new show is sure to be wickedly funny and entertaining, there is no doubt Silverman’s intense passion and understanding of the issues that divide our nation will inspire watchers to get up and do something.

Review: Sarah’s tour keeps scoring

The Toronto Sun published this review of Sarah’s April 21 show in Ontario. Sarah has tour performances throughout April, and her TV special, filmed on this tour, will reportedly premiere May 30 on Netflix.

RAMA, Ont. — The politically outspoken comedian Sarah Silverman acknowledged early on in her 85-minute set at Casino Rama on Friday night: “There are people out there for whom I’m not their cup of tea.”

She added quietly: “I’m sorry I called for a military coup.”

“When you’re a comic, we have to think before we tweet,” Silverman continued. “Who do we think we are…presidents?”

Silverman was explaining the heightened security as about 4,200 entered the casino’s entertainment centre.

“Sorry about the metal detectors — the wanding? That was my bad,” she explained.

Someone shouted out: “You’re American!”

“Yes, I’m from a small country south of the border that has been taken over by lunatics,” countered Silverman.

And that was about as close as the comic, who had our jaws dropping for her blue material and not her political outbursts — got to talking about Trump.

It seemed as if Silverman was weighing her topics carefully, as she often paused to look at a legal pad of notes before deciding on laser hair removal, her sisters, Barbie dolls, Texas anti-abortion laws, The Good Wife, lunching with Kanye West, her father, summer camp, nuns, the Bible, God and THAT “adorable” woman in the front row.

“Put your phone away,” said Silverman, whose delivery is a major part of her comedic charm. “You’re eight feet away from me. It distracts me. I’m obnoxious. I need all eyes on me.”

Before the show even began, Silverman let it be known she wasn’t going to tolerate a sea of phones as she said from behind the curtain: “Let’s have an experience together. Please do not be an empty vessel through which Facebook expresses yourself.”

Webmaster note: We cut the end of this article because it is just a list of many of Sarah’s jokes from her tour. It is our policy to avoid giving away too much of Sarah’s specific performance routines in print and we do not post videos of her tour performances.
