Bizarre but enjoyable
28 January 2013 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

It's a tradition for stand-up comics to venture into sitcom land, either loosely based around their own lives/family or playing a heightened version of themselves.

The first season of 'The Sarah Silverman Program' is definitely in the latter camp, with plenty of subversive humour. The fictional version of Silverman is lazy, immature, childish, refuses to work and relies on her sister Laura (played by Sarah's real-life sister Laura) to support her as well as her gay neighbours Brian and Steve. Sarah's real-life dog Duck also plays her fictional dog Doug.

Most of the six season one episodes revolve around Sarah getting into minor adventures, usually quite surreal and ridiculous, with a short original song thrown in for good measure.

Your enjoyment of TSSP will depend on your reaction to Sarah's comic version of herself. Yes, she comes off as a bit annoying, selfish, immature and barely able to take care of herself, but that's the point. The real Sarah's ability to make fun of herself and put a bizarre twist on the usual "famous comedian does a sitcom" formula should be commended.
