Sarah Silverman

Comedy Central star isn't afraid to talk 'doodie'

This year, one of America’s most controversial and intensely analyzed comedians got her own deliciously shocking Comedy Central show, “The Sarah Silverman Program,” which premiered in February and began a second season in October.

Silverman’s bouncy, clueless alter ego stoops to sub-Eric Cartman levels of immaturity in dealing with issues such as race, abortion, AIDS, lesbianism and bowel movements. Adding extra fodder for Silverman fans and critics were her noteworthy appearances on the MTV Movie Awards, where she joked about Paris Hilton’s jail time — “The guards are going to paint the bars to look like penises. … I just worry that she’s going to break her teeth on those things.” — with Paris in the aud. Uncowed, she went after Britney Spears at the MTV Video Music Awards, calling the singer’s kids “the most adorable mistakes you will ever see.”

Point of view

“Certainly I’m not that ridiculous in real life, but I am completely doodie-obsessed, as all comedians are,” Silverman says. “Maybe it’s the lowest common denominator, but it’s also a great uniter.”
