    Way, WAY too many fart jokes. A bit of toilet humor is funny, but she sometimes forgets when to quit.

    Re: Sarah Silverman: Funny or not?

    She was in one of my magazines this month- GQ or Details- and she looked smokin' hot, but when I see her in interviews she gives off a feeling like she would be a buddy or a sister.

    The jury is still out for me on that.

    She is hilarious, though.

    I liked the last show where she took in the homeless guy. But not because of her, I find her "gay" friends to be hilarious. The karate bit was one of the funniest things I have seen recently.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I get that same vibe.

    I think it's because I always see myself as the jokester/prankster in any relationship, and it'd be odd if someone was making me laugh consistently as opposed to the other way around.

    I think she's pretty good, but not spectacular. At the risk of sounding like a sexist, there's a pretty good case out there that she's slept her way to the top.

    I've yet to see Jesus is Magic, but I've pretty much followed her career since the SNL days.

    Yeah, that's pretty sexist. What difference does it make: she's either funny or not.

    Her show is destined to be canceled; what's so completely great about her humor (and ultimately what will get her show canceled) is that it doesn't in any way attempt to be witty or disaffected. It's throwback working-class scat humor with the claws of satire mercilessly at the ready ("Old black women are wise beyond their years...."). She's not daring to shock like so much humor these days, she's daring you to hate. Which is nice.

    Well I hadn't seen it before, but I watched it last night. I think she's less funny now than I did before seeing it. She made fun of things that most people won't touch, which at first was funny, but it seemed to get old though. Unlike FCB I think her stand up show was all shock. "Like I can't believe she's making fun of that." That only lasted so long for me. By no means was it a terrible show, but it wasn't as good as I expected.

    The difference... speaking theoretically here... is that if you take a person who's sorta, kinda funny, and that person strategically sleeps with those in positions of power, said person can get a lot of opportunities that might otherwise be reserved for those who are really, really funny.

    I like some of her stuff. Her standup in particular. I also think she's a good interview, and found myself going out of my way to listen to her Terry Gross interview on Fresh Air.

    On the other hand, I've found her acting roles to be horrible (School of Rock, Something About Mary).

    Wait, she was in School of Rock? Where?

    I cried at that movie...it made me want to be a music teacher. But I have no recollection of Sarah Silverman.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Well, if she did, she must be really bad in bed because she is nowhere near the top. Other than this new show on Comedy Central - and who hasn't had a show on Comedy Central - I haven't seen her as the star of her own series commanding hundreds and thousands of dollars per episode. I haven't seen her as a star in a feature film that has made a lot of money.

    She is a very attractive woman but I haven't seen enough of her to know whether she is funny or not. And I don't know if a sitcom is really an indication of how funny someone is. Look at Seinfeld. He was basically the straight man on that show. And even his show wasn't that well received at first.

    I like offbeat and crude humor--but unfortunately the best word I can think of when describing Sarah's new show is ---(politically incorrect warning alert)
    retarded....now the "Naked Trucker and T-Bones Show"-thats good comedy...

    Never heard of the woman, but I read where she abhors alcohol (a tee-totaler) but is a HUGE pothead.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
