It's Funny Because....
8 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Funny Because when it comes to the laughs in "The Sarah Silverman Program", 50% of the humor comes from avoiding political correctness at every turn, while the other half comes from the uncompromising selfishness of Sarah's character. Add the two together and you have instant ha-ha's. Like in the episode where Sarah tells her friends that she has AIDS, and hilarity ensues? Well why not? It's the new millennium. AIDS is funnier now than ever and not the complete drag it was in the 1980s. The show is also supposed to be funny because of jokes about how cops assume that suspects are always black, or the fact that Sarah finds it more important to purchase batteries for her TV remote than it is to care about children dying of cancer. Ya see, as long as the children aren't actually dying of cancer, cancer can be funny. And as long as it's fake TV racism, it's even funnier than the real thing. A central source of humor in tonight's episode is the revelation that god is black with Sarah asking "Are you god's black friend?" I'd explain to you that the joke is funny because Sarah is so UN-PC that she doesn't consider the possibility that god might NOT be white, but that might insult your intelligence as a viewer. BTW, the "God is Black" joke was done first and done better on "All in the Family" way back in the 70s! Back when an audience was allowed to get a joke on their own without it being driven home with a sledge hammer. And believe it or not, there once was a time in TV land that a selfish, self absorbed character ended up getting what she deserved, but with todays brand of TV , selfishness has become a whole new brand of Teflon.
