Guests: Episodes with Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman, born December 1, 1970, in Bedford, New Hampshire, is a multifaceted American talent known for her provocative humor. Raised in a liberal household, she developed a passion for performance early in life, despite struggling with depression and bed-wetting issues. She took a leap into stand-up comedy at 17 and eventually dropped out of New York University to focus on her career. A brief and unfulfilling stint on Saturday Night Live in 1993 didn’t deter her; she went on to earn recognition on programs like Mr. Show with Bob and David and The Larry Sanders Show.

Silverman’s comedy often takes a fearless approach to topics like race and gender, although not without controversy. Her television specials and series, like “Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic” and “The Sarah Silverman Program,” solidified her reputation for edgy comedy. She also garnered Emmy Awards for her writing and original music. Her TV appearances extend beyond comedy, including the political talk show “I Love You, America,” which tackled societal division post the 2016 U.S. election.

In film, Silverman has shown her versatility, taking on roles in comedies like “There‚Äôs Something About Mary” and dramas such as “Take This Waltz” and “I Smile Back.” She also lent her voice to animated films like “Wreck-It Ralph.” Not just confined to screens, Silverman ventured into theatre with an Off-Broadway adaptation of her memoir “The Bedwetter” in 2022, showcasing her skills as a writer and lyricist.
