E! reported yesterday that Sarah attended the David Spade birthday party:

We’d love to wish David Spade a big happy birthday, but we don’t think it would compare to the well wishes he got last night. The funny guy celebrated his 50th with a small dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles that included Chris Rock, Judd Apatow, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Steve Martin, according to a source.

By Sarah Silverman (as told to Charlotte Cowles)
HarpersBazaar.com  July 23, 2014

     I wore nothing but hoodies and jeans for the majority of my life, but when you turn 40 that becomes less cute. I’m still a slob most of the time, but I do love fashion, and I’ve grown to appreciate it more—especially people who do it really well. In my old age I’m finally getting it.
    I used to get so much anxiety when I put on a fancy dress. I’d be like, “This isn’t me! F*ck you! I’ll wear whatever the f*ck I want!” I think all comics have an inherent problem with authority, fashion or otherwise. But the part about not looking like myself has worn off—of course, I’m still me, no matter what I wear. I do feel weird in an outfit I can’t be funny in, though. Sometimes a beautiful dress just makes you talk differently: “Hi, I’m wearing Dolce & Gabbahhhna.” I need to be loose and let my face be ugly when I’m talking, if that’s what I want to do.
    Last year I met the stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, and I fell in love with them. Now I do whatever they tell me. I once saw this featurette on Jack Nicholson where he says, Read the rest of this entry »

Sarah appears as herself in the documentary, Harmontown, which should come to theaters this fall. The independent film organization “The Orchard” announced July 14 that it has acquired the North American distribution rights for the movie. According to their press release,  Harmontown “ follows Community creator and writer/producer Dan Harmon on tour for his eponymous podcast series. The film features appearances by Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Jason Sudeikis and Joel McHale – among other A-list comics.” We presume Sarah’s appearance is a cameo.

The news from Microsoft Thursday was that it will shut down Xbox Entertainment Studios, the division responsible for original Xbox programming.  That means the comedy/variety half-hour program that was to be created by the members of JASH (which includes Sarah) will not move forward, at least not via Xbox. Fans can only hope if work was already done on the show, maybe it will still make it to JASH some day.

Masters of Sex costumer redresses Sarah

Posted by Gator on July 16th, 2014

071614CrabtreeWhen New York magazine recently interviewed Masters of Sex costume designer Ane Crabtree for its fashion section (posted July 15), Crabtree was in the process of working with series newcomers including Sarah, whose body she said “fits completely in the 1950s” (when the Showtime drama takes place).

Here are the designer’s complete comments about Sarah (in response to the question, “Sarah Silverman and Betsy Brandt are two new stars who’ll be on the show. Can you share any insight into the costume-design process for them?)”:

Sarah plays a girl called Helen. We’ve heard about Helen in season one — we heard the name come out of Betty’s mouth. But we never actually saw Helen. What’s interesting with Sarah is that she’s so gorgeous and contrasting — pale-white skin, raven-black hair — and has a body that fits completely in the 1950s. And Sarah — forever in jeans and baseball caps and baseball tees, and boots — to take all that off: Lord have mercy!
