Despite the huge publicity blitz (No wonder Sarah got sick; she’s been running herself ragged doing promotional interviews), it is difficult to see I Smile Back in a theater if you don’t live in one of the 16 big cities in which it’s been released. We are jealous now when new theater showings get announced far away from our home base, but we’re happy for those who benefit. In this case, it’s you who live in Western Canada.
The Whistler Film Festival, in Whistler, British Columbia, will show I Smile Back at 9:15 p.m. on December 5. Tickets are available here. The press release is here. The festival website is here.
In the U.S., if you’re not near a theater showing, you can see I Smile Back on VOD or iTunes.
Actress/writer Lena Dunham (“Girls”) publishes a newsletter called Lenny, and this is from her November 13 issue. It’s chock-full of awesome answers to gem questions.
The Lenny Questionnaire: Sarah Silverman The comedian and actress talks about her first kiss and her favorite body part in this incisive interview.

Here’s the second installment of the Lenny Questionnaire: our adaptation of your and Proust’s favorite 19th-century personality quiz. Today, we’re talking to Sarah Silverman, a woman who makes me feel cozier than a small dog wrapped in a polar fleece.Continue reading →
Sarah and Howard go way back, and Sarah is a Howard “superfan,” so you can always count on a Stern show Sarah interview to bring out something new. (Remember it’s long form radio, so this October 26 interview is 43 minutes.)
There’s finally a way for fans who missed Andy Cohen with Sarah on Watch What Happens Live‘s “Halloween Show,” October 29, to see the full episode online. Theofficial Bravo linkis wrong: the page they say links to that full episode actually plays the episode after that. We’ve contacted their webmaster twice in the past two weeks and it’s still not fixed. But a correct link through Youtube instead of Bravo went up this week, so you do have a chance (probably temporarily) to see the episode. Cohen always brings out new humor from Sarah, so we recommend watching.
Unfortunately for those who had tickets for Sarah’s NYC Comedy Festival appearance last night, her illness (presumably stomach virus considering her tweets) didn’t let up and she had to cancel. (And of course she didn’t make the Tonight Show scheduled appearance either.)
