Sarah Silverman

Recommended Posts

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Silverman heckled at London gig

So Sarah Silverman's UK debut has fallen on it's arse after charging punters up to 50 for 40 minutes of "entertainment".

Did anyone else see this utter waste of space on TV over the weekend? Saw her on Jonathon Ross and 8 out of 10 Cats and she was just terrible....would rather have watched 3 hours of Bobby Davro.

Lucy Porter has a bit of the 'Butter Face' about her.

The last female commedian (ienne?) I laughed at was the girl from Flight Of The Choncordes set at the 'Secret Policeman's Ball'. Didn't know if she was being serious for the first couple of minutes... then it clicked. Genuis.

Not true. Look up Lucy Porter. She is very funny.

Also Joan Rivers.

Lucy Porter is average, but one of the better comedians. Joan Rivers on the other hand is horrendous.

Maybe im missing something regarding joan rivers but i honestly think shes gash......This is not an ignorant view..Iknow who she is and ive watched countless programs with her in it....I simply do not find her 1 bit funny...Or her wee storys of men she slept with back in 1889........

And i seem to know the silverman burrds face but not as a comedian...Has she been in any films or te like? . . . . . . .

Also since the can of worms is open anyway can i bring up my point regarding female comedians and lesbianism.....Is it just me or are most if not all female commedians gay?.....Coincedence i think not ;)

Joan Rivers?!?! o_O She's a fucking abomination!

Best girlie comedian I've seen was Sarah Millican. She did support for Reginald D. Hunter when he played the Lemon Tree last year, and was hilarious.......filthy, but hilarious.

I think Sarah Silverman is mighty funny, and she gives me a boner.

She used to be in The Larry Sanders Show, if that helps you put a role to the face? Played Wendy the writer.

Actually I think I heard a similar opinion voiced by Mark Kermode to Kirsty Wark on Newsnight Review last week. Actually my mistake, it was being etched in biro on a Kimberley-Clark toilet roll dispenser in a public toilet next to a Greggs Bakers in Exeter by a mentally disturbed cretin who was swallowing his own tongue as he shat.

I'm glad some other people thought that she was completely un-funny on the Jonathan Ross show. It also annoyed me how he was pretend laughing at everything she said. She was not funny at all.

Saying that I have never seen any of her other stuff, so I wont completely condemn her just yet.

It is just you, and you are a moron.

Oh, but I guess that winking smiley means that you're joking, highlarious.

Hmm, on the subject of funny female comedians.

I find Dawn French to be very funny a lot of the time. She's probably my favourite female comedian (although Im not sure I would class her as a pure comedian... maybe more of a actress who happens to be amusing?).

She played Ed Scheebly's nippy biscuits girlfriend in School of Rock - Jack Black's character's flatmate whom he impersonated to get the job at the school.

i was actually at the recording of 8 out of 10 cats last week but haven't seen the telly version so don't know what was left in or how it was edited. bear in mind that the recording lasted 2 and a half hours. she was infinitely better than that prick kelvin mckenzie, a man who has possibly the most scottish name in the world but spouts the most horrific anti-scot rants at any opportunity.

she was absolutely shitting her pants about the gig on sunday incidentally. quite rightly it would seem. her humour doesn't always click i guess.

Suppose the difference is that Kelvin McKenzie isnt there to be funny....he's there to be the butt of the jokes. 8 out of 10 cats usually has 1 non-comedian on, who is basically just a walking target for the other comedians to take the piss out of.

So saying that Silverman was funnier than McKenzie isnt exactly a glowing endorsement of her comic credentials!

Um....Susie Esman? Janeane Garofolo?

Very funny wimmin.

Love from Christy

Janeane Garofalo would definitely be my first example, she is and always has been utterly brilliant. I would also add Kristen Schaal and Josie Long.
