“The Sarah Silverman Program” Premieres on Comedy Central

February 2nd, 2007 // 5 Comments

On the heels of her highly successful movie, “Jesus Is Magic,” Sarah Silverman fans will finally be able to enjoy weekly installments of the decidedly politically-incorrect comedy for which the comedienne has become famous. At the ripe (and in Hollywood, nearly dead) age of thirty-six, it’s surprising that this incredibly talented SNL alum has yet to have starred in her own weekly comedy show on television. And for those of us obsessed with the woman who claims that her new show delivers “full-frontal jewdity,” it’s been a long time coming.

“The Sarah Silverman Program” aired on Comedy Central Thursday night on Comedy Central at 10:30P/9:30 C and promises to deliver the kind of satirical live-action comedy that “Chappelle’s Show” fans have been desperately missing since Dave Chappelle quit his highly successful show on the same channel.

Old people, being Jewish and Sarah’s vagina are just some of the many topics covered by this scripted half-hour comedy that promises plenty of opportunities for many horrible, horrible things to escape from the cutie-pie mouth of the namesake of the show.

    Don’t worry Tom, you didn’t miss much. The show sucked big time….and I love Sarah Silverman. It’s like Crank Yankers, that crap is hilarious until you go and make a show out of it….too scripted and not funny at all.

    Geez, I thought is was hilarious!!!! But then again, I liked Pee Wee’s Playhouse, still do! The show was kind of like Pee Wee’s Playhouse, in that she was an adult, but acted like a child, with a dirty vocabulary that is.

    Wow, that was possibly the most unfunny thing I’ve seen in years.

    I agree with Small Fry. Her movie was great because it was so original. They/She spoiled her whole schtick by trying to capitalize on it and make a show. It was funny for about the first ten minutes.
