Sarah Silverman is everywhere in entertainment news as of late. Headlining a Vegas show, starring in some lame arthouse flick, and now, with the return of her show on Comedy Central, The Sarah Silverman Program. I’d respect Sarah a bit more if her act/humor didn’t solely rely on her ability to provoke without any comedic substance or wit of any kind. That, and I couldn’t help but notice that every article that made mention of Silverman’s latest movie I Want Someone To Eat Cheese With mostly alluded to words such as “striptease” and “skivvies” when describing the movie. That can’t bode well for the remaining hour and half of the film.
Sarah is already making waves these days for the controversy surrounding the premise of the season premiere of her show. The racially-charged episode features Sarah donning a black face after she is denied entrance (for being Jewish, according to her) into a club and runs into a black waiter who makes the comment, “Try being Black for a day.” Well, you get where the plot goes from there. After all, I wouldn’t wanna ruin the surprise.
