Sarah Silverman: My kinda woman…

Last Friday night I had the pleasure of interviewing Sarah Silverman just before a book signing and Q&A with Sandra Tsing Loh at the Writers Guild Theatre (a Writers Bloc event).  Her new book,”The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee” is a collection of stories and tidbits from her life that help reveal some insight into the Sarah Silverman experience. 

Unfortunately I had to conduct myself in a professional manner and avoid any impulse to ask her to dinner to see what she’s doing for shabbas…it probably wasn’t meant to be, but in my mind Sarah Silverman is perfect.  She’s everything I like in a Jewish girl and mocks everything I hate.

I did NOT ask about Jimmy Kimmel or Matt Damon.

Here’s an excerpt from her book, which is available at Amazon here:

My Life Started by Exploding out of my Father’s Balls, and You Wonder Why I Work Blue

Like most children, I learned to swear from a parent. But most children learn to swear by mimicking moments when a parent loses self-control. That is typically followed by the parent stressing that such words are bad and shouldn’t be repeated outside the home. When I was three years old, I learned to swear from my father, but he taught me with every intention to do so. It was like he was teaching a “cursing as a second language” course for one.
