Sarah's Only Okay
11 November 2005 | by HammeranvilSee all my reviews

I think the only people who would really find her work refreshing are people who are too used to lying and believing lies about social conditions and beliefs.

Too many of the people she pokes fun at (minorities, rights organizations etc.) are well aware that most people are bigoted and racist and are firmly committed to hiding this fact by confining their personal hatreds to what they think are subtle, undetectable acts of prejudice. Her comedy loses it's punch on people who have no illusions about what people think and what they say in their hearts or behind closed doors.

In other words, if you're well aware that most of the people smiling in your face are racist, bigoted bastards ... someone informing you of this fact isn't going to wow you all that much.
