Sarah Silverman appears before an audience in Los Angeles with several sketches, taped outside the theater, intercut into the stand-up performance. Themes include race, sex, and religion. Her comic persona is a self-centered hipster, brash and clueless about her political incorrectness. A handful of musical numbers punctuate the performance. It begins and ends with her in conversation with two friends: at the start, she's the loser compared to their recent artistic successes; by the end, she's the star, in her dressing room, dismissive and cutting.

Spare us, Silverman...
19 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Appalling... in a school of wittering idiots, Sarah Silverman rules in hell, apparently. Her weak co-option of human rights should make the most noble of us shudder. SS humour includes such dissociative as MLK and farting, AIDS = lemonaids and the charming imagining of "wouldn't the Jews have been better off if there were Blacks in Nazi Germany?" Her cruelty knows no bounds, especially to the elderly, Blacks, Ethiopians, her parents, her dead grandmother, everyone wins! She likes Fiji Wadder! If you, as I, were watching this DVD expecting a cinematic début of a rising talent and found yourself bored... try this trick: Use a mental computer find-and-erase and for every instance of the words "um", "like", "gay" and "oh my God", renders the entire performance half as long... Score! Or in her own words, "My sh*t... it belongs offstage."
