Sarah Silverman Bio

Silverman first received national attention in the 1993–94 season of Saturday Night Live as a writer and featured player. She was fired after one season because only one of the sketches she wrote survived to dress rehearsal, and none aired. Bob Odenkirk, a former SNL writer explained, “I could see how it wouldn’t work at SNL  because she’s got her own voice, she’s very much Sarah Silverman all the time. She can play a character but she doesn’t disappear into the character she makes the character her.” Silverman states she was upset when SNL fired her via fax. She parodied the situation when she came out on The Larry Sanders Show episode “The New Writer” in 1996, playing Sanders’ new staff writer, whose jokes are not used because of the chauvinism & bias of the male chief comedy writer, who favors the jokes of his male co-writers. She came out in three episodes of Larry Sanders during its last two seasons. Silverman’s biological sister Laura plays her sister on The Sarah Silverman Program. Another sister, Susan, is a rabbi who lives on a kibbutz in Israel w/ her husband and five children.

Silverman is a fan of Jenny Lewis & appeared in Lewis’ music video for the song “Rise Up with Fists!!” She is also a fan of comedian Steve Martin who was one of her major inspirations as a younger comedian. Silverman enjoys playing Scrabble on the Internet. One of her regular opponents is Alyssa Milano who lives in the same building as her. She credited comedian Tig Notaro as one of her best friends in an interview in The Advocate. She is ethnically Jewish, which she has frequently mined for material, but does not follow the religion claiming, “I have no religion. But culturally I can’t escape it; I’m very Jewish.” Her humor has also touched on other religions. In 2009, she suggested the Pope sell the Vatican & use some of the money for luxurious housing & the remainder to stop world hunger saying he would “get crazy pussy.” As of January 2010, Silverman is dating Family Guy producer/writer Alec Sulkin.
