Hey guys! I just got off my internship at UMGD and I had the chance to watch Sarah Silverman's new DVD "Jesus Is Magic." WOW! WOW! WOW! It was incredibly funny and I was shocked as to some of the stuff she said! I mean, she has no fear and it definetly makes her stand out from the rest! You should definetly check it out to see what I mean. I was looking online and I found a link to some of her stuff on youtube. <a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=UPiFhjCxXpk&search=silverman" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=UPiFhjCxXpk&search=silverman</a>

To each his own, but I hated it. I might be a tad more of a traditionalist. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

She says things that are very obscene and harshly hateful (and sometimes funny). I wonder if she wasn't a sexy girl if she'd be received as well. I am not sure men saying the same things could really get away with it as well.<br><br><br><br>
Also, as a vocalist, I cannot tolerate anything about her voice.

You might be missing something, some of the humor comes out of her persona as this nice jewish girl, so when she says what she says it comes as this total sucker punch. I can't imagine Nick DiPaolo doing her act. Woody Allen has said on many occasions he was a horribble comic initially because he used to just be a comedy writer, he didn't understand that beyond comic timing there's actually a character that you establish as well, a Woody Allen character he's used in stand up and movies since. He's totally different in reality, Sarah Silverman I don't know for sure, she has this bubbly character on stage but in real life she's had a lot of trouble with depression.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I got in trouble for saying the word ***** on a talk show, a network talk show. It was in the context of a joke. Obviously. Thatd be weird. Thatd be a really bad career choice if it wasnt. But, nevertheless, the president of an Asian-American watchdog group out here in Los Angeles, his name is Guy Aoki, and he was up in arms about it and he put my name in the papers calling me a racist, and it hurt.<br><br><br><br>
As a Jewas a member of the Jewish communityI was really concerned that we were losing control of the media. Right? What kind of a world do we live in where a totally cute white girl cant say ***** on network television? Its like the fifties. Its scary.<br><br><br><br>
There are only two Asian people that I know that I have any problem with, at all. One is, uh, Guy Aoki. The other is my friend Steve, who actually went pee-pee in my Coke. Hes all, Me Chinese, me play joke. Uh, if you have to explain it, Steve, its not funny.</div>

I like Sarah Silverman. Jesus is Magic was a bit crude for me, but I watched it anyway and moslty laughed. She's a funny girl. I did say, "I can't believe she just said that!" alot, but that's what she does. She was so funny on Crank Yankers (that show got old fast for me though) and she was perfect as the bitchy controlling girlfriend in School of Rock (great movie).

Oh no, I'm not missing anything. I understand the idea of the 'persona' and have done quite a bit of watching her and reading interviews with her prior to reviewing her film 'Jesus Is Magic' for the magazine I write for. I stand by my statments about her 'comedy' and her nasal, shrill, annoying sing-songy vocals. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/book2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":book:">
