Silverman’s 2013 comedy special on HBO, “Sarah Silverman: We are Miracles,” earned her a primetime Emmy win, plus nominations for the Writers Guild and the Grammys.

Aside from comedy, her acting resume is impressive with roles on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” CBS’s “The Good Wife,” films “I Smile Back” and “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” plus a number of voice gigs. Coming up, she will appear alongside Emma Stone in the film “Battle of the Sexes.”

Silverman’s Netflix special will be directed by Liam Lynch. Thruline’s Amy Zvi will also produce, alongside JASH.
