    Did anyone catch this? It was pretty good. I've always loved Sarah ever since Sat. Night Live and her comedy is very funny.

    The show actually reminds me a lot like "Get a Life"...

    It is different. I love Silverman, so some of the moments that are her traditional humor really killed me. The moment she started slugging down nighttime cough medicine "Nighttime? How is my body going to know the difference.. stupid marketing.." I knew it was going to be crazy.

    I love it that a big chunk of the cast of "Mr. Show" is present.

    I loved when the old lady went to hug her and she said "Oh! Up close you do look 70" (or whatever it was exactly).

    "Why are you so mad at me.."
    "When I asked you for your license you gave me this..."

    Made me laugh.

    Actually, this show is so off the wall, it made me laugh at several moments. "Cookie Party" "Is that a chocolate threeway?" [​IMG]

    I laughed outloud a few times. Sarah Silverman is one of those women I find highly attractive and pray I never meet in real life!

    She reminds me of Jenny Macarthy - Beautiful women, who aren't afraid to do bathroom humor.

    Anyone know who plays Sarah's sister? The actress looked familiar.
    No info at IMDB...yet.

    I never thought I would see the day where Zach Galifianakis would get into a kung-fu fight with Brian Posehn to the theme song of "The Last Dragon".

    I agree Chucky, the ending really saved the episode for me. I thought it was a little slower and not quite as funny as the premiere, but the fight and Sarah's lesson learned at the end, if you help people they will just end up trying to stab you to death, redeemed it for me.

    Facetious? That's my baby's name!

    I agree with the EW review - her comedy holds up better in the shorter format than it did in her film.

    I think alot of women comics say extremely vulgar things to mask that they aren't funny (look at most women appearing on a Comedy Central roast). The exception is Sarah Silverman. She's extremely vulgar and funny. [​IMG]

    This most recent episode is my favorite. The entire bit of her going to get an HIV test as a way to brighten her spirits made me laugh often. I loved the entire bit at she rotated into Evita [​IMG]

    "Hi, I'm Sarah Silverman and going to pump *clamp* you UP! With AIDS AWARENESS."

    "Yes, that was a good one."

    I love how she always interupts her songs to yell at someone. My favorite was last week when she told Zach Galifianakis that it wasn't a duet. [​IMG]
