Insights on Sarah’s 8/19 sets with Brody Stevens

Posted by Gator on August 28th, 2014

We already reported to you that Sarah and Brody Stevens took time between Oddball Festival dates to do some New York City club appearances on August 19. Today Jeffrey Gurian talked in his column about having attended their performances that night at Gotham:

…From there I jumped over to the Gotham Comedy Club to see Comedy Juice which is an amazing show. Brody Stevens was there; he was in town touring with the Oddball Comedy Festival. He did great– you know he’s very strange and unusual — and at the end of his set, a guy was walking through the crowd and Brody made fun of him saying that he looked like Dr. Drew. Well, oddly enough, it really was Dr. Drew Pinsky. And Brody, who makes no secret of his mental illness stayed on after the red light so he could tell Dr. Drew from the stage what drug he’s currently on, and what the dosage was. Dr. Drew gave him a thumbs up and told him he was doing well.

That night, Sarah Silverman came in and did a great set!  She was working out some new material– and she even brought her notes on stage with her.   Somebody in the audience made a comment– and she told the audience– you should be excited to see a comedian working out new material because it’s not often that you see that. And she got huge applause for saying that. After she was finished, she split immediately because Sarah doesn’t really hang out unless she’s at the Comedy Cellar.

In contrast to her glamour at the Emmy Awards, this was Sarah’s attire outside a New York City hotel August 27.



Sarah talks boobs and boffing to Emmy press

Posted by Gator on August 27th, 2014

In the press room of the 2014 Emmy Awards, Sarah was asked about her role [Helen] on Masters of Sex, including the nudity it involved. Based on reports from eonline, afterellen, zap2it, and others, these were among her responses:

“The part of Helen was mentioned in the pilot episode actually and according to [show creator] Michelle Ashford, they’ve always kind of had me in mind. And then I started fucking the star and it really solidified it. Or maybe not.”

“No, I got my job from auditioning.”

“I feel like I’ve suddenly been doing nudity since I turned 40. They’re just boobs.”

“They’re as low as they’ve ever been, but also as high as they’ll ever be at this point. But yeah, it’s a lot of fun.”



Why Sarah ran barefoot to accept her Emmy

Posted by Gator on August 27th, 2014


To those interpreting Sarah’s not having worn shoes onstage at the Emmys as being evidence of a substance-altered consciousness, Sarah had this to say in the Emmy press room later:

“They just hurt, the shoes just hurt. They’re very nice. They’re by Geppetto. I remember that because he made Pinocchio and also clearly designed shoes for the Nazi war effort.” Then she said to her publicist, “Don’t be mad at me.”

She also talked about her shoes hurting in the clip below (at timecode 00:46) from the pre-ceremony red carpet.

Sarah returning to Masters of Sex in season 3?

Posted by Gator on August 27th, 2014

MastersOfSex_LogoSarah hopes to be back on Masters of Sex next season, and the show’s creator, Michelle Ashford, hopes to have her back.

Afterellen.com reported that Ashford said this about Sarah’s Helen character:

“[Sarah's] great. We ended up loving her so much,” Michelle said. “We had her in mind for the longest time for this. She was so game for it and she’s so lovely. Also we knew she had to be a very unusual woman to have hooked up with Betty. So she alone has this whole mystery—but she’s so beautiful and subtle in the role. I think people will be really surprised. She’s lovely and so now she’s in. She’s another one, in with us for good. She’s also a very busy woman so she’s in two wonderful episodes this season but she’s gonna be coming back for sure.”

Speaking to E! on the Emmys red carpet, Sarah herself said, “I’ll be back next season to finish the story up—if I’m allowed.”

Sarah appeared as Betty’s lesbian lover, Helen, in episodes 5 and 6 of the current season (season 2).
