Was Sarah “high as fuck” at Emmys?

Posted by Gator on August 26th, 2014


We don’t know for sure whether Sarah was stoned when she attended the Emmys last night and strode barefoot to the stage to accept the award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special, but the topic sure was trending in social networks at the time.

Many viewers wondered about her demeanor during a red carpet interview with E!’s Giuliana Rancic, which you can watch in its entirety below.


During the interview, when Rancic inquired about what she keeps in her purse, the findings of a subsequent check included Sarah’s vaping pen, about which she said, “This is my pot. It’s liquid pot.”

Sarah reportedly later denied that she had been under the influence during the awards, but explained, ““I was carrying pot in my purse for later. It’s legal! I like to have a puff as a treat at appropriate times.”

There’s been lots of talk about Sarah’s excited Emmy acceptance speech.  Below is a transcription, followed by a link to watch it on video. (Although reporters were puzzled by how she ended her speech, fans will recognize her final reference from her Twitter profile epigram: “We’re all just molecules”– which she’s been saying for ages, and which had been considered as a title for her HBO special.)

Emmy Acceptance Speech (August 25, 2014):

This didn’t even occur to me. Thank you to my Jews at CAA: Larry, Moe, Curly, and Nick Nuciforo. Heidi Herzon produced it and Liam Lynch directed– we got the old team back together. HBO, Michael Lombardo, Nina Rosenstein, and @FunnyOrDie.  Betsy and Anna. Amy Zvi: my friend and my manager and my partner, and thank you for being such a huge part of my life.  Flanny– Mark Flanagan– at Largo, thank you for making Largo my home and for introducing me to my love, Mr. Fancy Pants Sheen.  And we’re all just made of molecules, and we’re hurling through space right now.  Thank you.

Chappelle joins Oddball in CT

Posted by Gator on August 24th, 2014


This lineup for the August 23 Hartford, Connecticut, stop on the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival tour was already amazing (what the New York Times afterward called “a murderer’s row of comics”).  Then, after listed closer Louis C.K. finished, there appeared an astonishing bonus: Dave Chappelle– not part of the Oddball tour this year– came on to do the night’s closing set.  Last year, Chappelle, a headliner on the 2013 Oddball tour, clashed with the audience and walked off, later vowing never to return to Hartford. So you could say Sarah was part of a historic night of comedy in Hartford yesterday.



Sarah joins plea for peace

Posted by Gator on August 23rd, 2014

Sarah’s is among the almost 200 celebrity names on the “Commitment to Peace and Justice” petition posted by the activist arts organization Creative Community for Peace on its website today.  The document will reportedly be published tomorrow in “such trade publications as The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard and Variety, and also major U.S. newspapers.”


Video: Sarah in Gravy peek

Posted by Gator on August 22nd, 2014



Finally, we get a glimpse of what Sarah will look like in the movie Gravy, which wrapped a while back but has had very few showings yet. Daniel Milder produced a recently posted behind-the-scenes feature which includes interview excerpts with a lot of the stars, including Sarah. (Clicking the pic takes you straight to her segment, or watch the whole video here.)  Looks like it will be fun but plenty gory.

There is “officially” no release date yet for Gravy.
