Interview: AV Club 9/23/14

Posted by Gator on September 23rd, 2014



For almost 20 years now, Sarah Silverman has been a shining blue beacon of amusing yet slightly alarming remarks about race, sex, politics, and weed. And while she’s always acted, recently she’s picked up steam in Hollywood, appearing in films like Take This Waltz, Wreck-It Ralph, and A Million Ways To Die In The West, as well as TV shows like Masters Of Sex. Silverman just won her second Emmy, this time for Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, an HBO special that aired on actual TV last year but will be released as a CD, LP, and audio download this month via Sub Pop records, just in time for the impending global apocalypse.

1. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

Sarah Silverman: I used to pass out fliers for a comedy club when I was first starting out in New York City called the Boston Comedy Club. My first year of doing it, I was in college. I went to one year of college. I would work from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and then have classes from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. I couldn’t keep my eyes open during my classes and I felt so guilty. But it was a crazy little job—you had to deal with a lot of people. It was the first time I got punched in the face—knocked out unconscious.

The A.V. Club: Why did you get punched in the face?

SS: I was breaking up a fight between some scary gaggle of teenagers drinking 40s who were beating up on the Pluck You chicken, who was also passing out fliers on the same corner. I went to try to break it up—not being a hero, just thinking nobody would hurt a girl. And I was wrong. I got punched in the temple and knocked unconscious. That was my last day working as a person passing out fliers, but I did it for two years. When I pass people who pass out fliers, I always take them because I know how depressing it is. A lot of interesting things happened on that corner. A homeless vet started strangling me. I think I met eyes with him. New Yorkers are the best because the second his hands went around my throat, three different people pulled him off me. Read the rest of this entry »

Sarah on Howard Stern 9/23/14

Posted by Gator on September 23rd, 2014

Sarah was on the Howard Stern show this morning (so was Lenny Kravitz). We’ll have a transcript of the interview for you in a few days, but meanwhile, here is the E! report about Howard’s conversation with Sarah.


One of the (many) drawbacks to dating in Hollywood? Your significant other’s relationship history is fair game for tabloid fodder.

So when Sarah Silverman stopped by The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday morning to promote the audio release of her Emmy-award winning stand-up special We Are Miracles, the funnylady was asked point blank about boyfriend Michael Sheen’s gorgeous ex, Kate Beckinsale, whom he dated for eight years and has one daughter, 15-year-old Lily.

Awkward much? Well, not if you’re Sarah Silverman. Read the rest of this entry »

Sarah NOT desperately seeking wedding

Posted by Gator on September 22nd, 2014

Sarah and Gladwell face off in N.Y. Times

Posted by Gator on September 20th, 2014

T, the New York Times style magazine, cleverly paired best-selling author/New Yorker columnist Malcolm Gladwell with our own Sarah to write reactions to six quasi-high-style items for T‘s “Take Two” feature. They comment on a spiral rotating tray, an egg-shaped doorstop, a scented fork, a “smart” ring, and cricket cookies. (Click the article to enlarge, or go here to read at the source.)




Nostalgia: Sarah about Cosby

Posted by Gator on September 20th, 2014




This week is the 30th anniversary of the premiere of NBC’s legendary Cosby Show, so recently lots is being written about series creator and star Bill Cosby.  Last year, GQ honored the 30th anniversary of Cosby’s legendary standup film, Bill Cosby: Himself, with recollections from “seven top comedians.”  This is what GQ quoted Sarah as saying about the then-pioneering comedy concert movie:
