Dig Into Comedy Central with 2 HILARIOUS Series: Important Things with Demetri Martin and The Sarah Silverman Show
These two crazy, goofy and pushed so far outside the box comedians are back to back with their own shows. Here’s the wonderful music video that Sarah Silverman and Demetri Martin put together just for you– because they are on TONIGHT premiering their shows on Comedy Central!
Returning to the wacky world of Sarah Silverman. COMEDY CENTRAL’s hit series, “The Sarah Silverman Program,” returns for a third season with 10 all-new episodes beginning on Thursday, February 4 at 10:30 p.m. with a secondary run on Logo beginning Tuesday, February 9 at 10:30 p.m.
Follow Sarah and the rest of the gang as she takes on pedophile vans; rigs a mayoral election; takes a stance on “Real Time with Bill Maher”; and reconnects with her imaginary childhood friend (played by Andy Samberg), among other adventures in this irreverent new season.
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.
I watched this episode and it’s part funny, part weirdness, part everything Sarah Silverman is. I didn’t know that the sister in the show was really her sister and the jokes and sometimes antipathy comes through clearly but with some real empathy and fun. There is no other way to view this series except as crazy, witty and yet so much physical humor that’s so reminescent of male comedies that it’s definitely a MUST DVR series. Don’t miss this one!
“The Sarah Silverman Program” stars the Emmy Award-winning 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.
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 2008 in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for a musical collaboration with Matt Damon.
Silverman will soon add author to her resume when her book, a memoir, “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee,” debuts in stores on April 20. She also recently wrapped production on the comedy “Peep World,” opposite Rainn Wilson and Michael C. Hall. Previously, Silverman made an impressive splash when the feature-length film version of her stage show, “Jesus is Magic,” was met with critical acclaim upon its release in 2005. Silverman garnered rave reviews in the documentary feature “The Aristocrats,” in which she co-starred along with 100 of the industry’s most prominent comedians. She also starred opposite Jack Black, Mike White and Joan Cusack in Paramount Picture’s “The School of Rock,” among others.
Laura Silverman is best known for her role in HBO’s series, “The Comeback.” She also appeared in her sister’s film, “Jesus is Magic” as well as “Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.” Brian Posehn is best known for his role in “Just Shoot Me” as well as appearances in “Seinfeld,” “Newsradio” and “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Steve Agee also appeared in “Jesus is Magic” as well as Bobcat Goldthwait’s film, “Sleeping Dogs Lie.” Jay Johnston can be seen in the film “Anchorman” and appeared in the HBO television series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Mr. Show” and the FOX television series, “Malcolm in the Middle.”
The series is based on an idea by Silverman, Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab (Oscar-nominated “Monster House”). Silverman, Schrab, Heidi Herzon (“Jesus is Magic”) and Dan Sterling (“The Daily Show”) are the executive producers. Schrab and Sterling also serve as director of several of the episodes. Gary Mann is the executive in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
Do NOT miss this show ot the one featuring Demetri Martin because they are hysterically funny, though being in the proper mind-frame does help. It will definitely change your perspective on life, love and laughter as well as the crappy boss you have.
