There are certain things that can be said aloud only if youre Sarah Silverman. This fact has been proven repeatedly since her one-woman show/musical, Jesus Is Magic, hit the video store shelves; her appearance on The Aristocrats became urban party legend; and her new series, The Sarah Silverman Program, accrued a rabid fan base. Homegirls got just the comedic timing and sprightly smile needed to pull off juxtaposed one-liners like I was licking jelly off my boyfriends penis, and suddenly I was thinking, Ohmigod, Im becoming my mother.
Watching the Big S dissect taboo topics, warp them, and then present them to an audience is akin to seeing that adorable Easter bunny from the Cadbury commercials devouring its young and then using their pelts to perform a fanciful puppet review. Youd giggle because it would be really cute, but then try to stifle it because its oh so wrong. Release those uncomfortable snorts in a judgment-free environment tonight, when Silverman performs at the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater at 8:00.
