"The Sarah Silverman Program" by Suzanne
Airing on Comedy Central Thursdays 10:30 pm
just watched a preview of the first two episodes of the new season of "The Sarah
Silverman Program". They were hilarious! I had watched some of her show before
and found it kinda gross and not very funny. So, to be honest, I was not looking
forward to watching these previews. I was pleasantly surprised at how hilarious
The first one, "The Proof Is in the Penis" was one of the
funniest things I've ever seen in my life. It will definitely surprise you.
Sarah thinks she's a man, so she starts acting and dressing like one - I can't
really tell you the funniest parts because that would ruin it. Also, her
gay nerdy neighbors are haunted. I love the way they pull it all together in the
end in a kind of Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Supernatural spoof.
In the second one, she
gets her own kid's show. That one was very funny as well. You just have to
see it, it's hilarious. I really enjoyed them.
I'm going to have to start watching her show regularly, now, it seems! You

NEW YORK, January 12, 2010 – Welcome back to the wacky world of Sarah Silverman.

mayoral election, takes a stance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” and reconnects
with her imaginary childhood friend (played by Andy Samberg), among other

"The Sarah Silverman Program" stars the Emmy® Award winner
Silverman who plays a character (aptly named Sarah Silverman) whose absurd daily
life is told through narrative and an occasional song. In each episode, Sarah
falls into unique, unsettling and always hilarious predicaments, with her sister
(played by real-life sister Laura Silverman), her nerdy gay neighbors, Brian and
Steve (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee) and dim-witted Officer Jay (Jay Johnston)
never far from her side.
In the premiere episode, "The Proof is in the Penis," Laura
wants Sarah to “man-up” and start taking responsibilities for her life, so she
falsely informs her that she was born a hermaphrodite. Sarah
accepts her manhood and decides to move into the woods and live off of the land.
Meanwhile, Brian and Steve are haunted by Mr. Jenkins and must dig up his grave
and replace the remote that killed him in his corpse’s chest.
Emmy® winner Sarah Silverman recently received an Emmy® nomination for her role
in “The Sarah Silverman Program.” She had previously won a Primetime Emmy® in
