    Re: Sarah Silverman: Funny or not?

    I've been a big fan since her Mr. Show days.

    Lots of funny people from that show are on Sarah's new show, so I was hooked before it began. Jay Johnston's got to be one of the funniest people on the planet.

    Does anyone remember a show called "Pilot Season"? It was featured on BBC America's "Brilliant but cancelled" series a few years back. Not as much potty humor, but it was some witty, witty stuff.

    Sarah Silverman, Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Brian Posehn, and pretty much everyone who was a part of Mr. Show are some of the funniest comic minds around, but they also seem to be doomed to fail. I just don't think the general public can handle their style. Too challenging.

    I would agree. For example, David Cross was brilliant on Arrested Development, as was the entire show. How it can get cancelled while According to Jim lives on is beyond me. How many times are they going to rehash the Honeymooners/Flintstones?
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Those are perfect examples.

    'Course it's been that way since the days of Lenny Bruce and others. I only hope that they'll continue to generate enough exposure to feed my fix even if only for a little while.

    I'm really missing Bob Odenkirk. Aside from a few Miller Light ads, he's pretty much disappeared.

    She's great. Wish there were more like her.

    I think the scenes for the "gay" guys on her show remind me of "Arrested Development". I think her character is way to stupid to be funny.
    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.

    Her show is hit and miss.....but that is the way it goes with her brand of comedy.

    I like Cross and Odenkirk........heck i still miss the ben Stiller show......where Odenkirk was Charlie Manson. "Ask Charlie"........Very funny.

    Drawn Together is completely stupid to me........and it's just like someone said earlier.....How far do you go before it stops being funny? Even "South Park" get's to me at certain points. Can't get enough of Butters though.

    Jim Belushi.......i think Howard Stern once said that he was funnier than John.
    Stern must be friends with Jim....beacuse i do not find him funny at all...never have. Fat, ugly guy with hot woman....see that on about 2-3 sitcoms every other year.....and tons of beer commercials. All the guys are average to ugly but the girls....always look like they came right off of Maxim or Perfect 10.

    Sarah Silverman and Matt Damon

    I just came across this clip of Sarah Silverman on the the Jimmy Kimmel show. Silverman made a music video with Matt Damon which is pretty funny. I'm not a fan of hers, but this is pretty good work. Enjoy.

    Almost as good as Matt Damon's cameo in Eurotrip.

    One little vowel can really change the meaning.

    His best role ever, aside from the Bourne movies.

    Ever.

    You did better than me, I made it through about ten minutes.
