Foul-mouthed Australian comedian Jim Jefferies puts everything out there in this raunchy EPIX comedy special -- and shows off his skill for skewering sacred cows and virtually everything else with brutal honesty.
Her innocent good looks are just a cover for Last Comic Standing winner Iliza Shlesinger's acerbic, stream-of-conscious comedy that she unleashes on an unsuspecting audience in her hometown of Dallas in her stand-up special "War Paint."
Comedian John Mulaney talks about his milk toast boyish looks, his childhood, his Jewish girlfriend, his gayish charm, his favorite TV shows, Ice-T, a homeless person he met in N.Y., and a prostate exam with Batman.
Prepare for an evening of riotously shocking material as sharp-witted stand-up superstar Sarah Silverman steps up for her first HBO solo special. Performing in front of an intimate audience of just 39 fans at L.A.'s Largo nightclub, Silverman takes aim at such subjects as cell-phone porn, crazy religions, specialty deodorants, terrible roommates, eyebrow waxing, her 19-year-old dog, Barack Obama and Republicans, having babies, Pixar movies, the miracle of existence, and much more.Written by
I first learned of Sarah Silverman when I saw ads for "The Sarah Silverman Program" in 2007 or 2008.* I then saw some of her skits and laughed out loud. Her HBO special "Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles" features her in the Largo telling all manner of edgy stories. I particularly liked Silverman's memory of being in the shower with her mom. It just goes to show that humor really does work best when the person is allowed to say whatever s/he wants. Above all, Silverman is among the best that there is in comedy, always letting everyone have it equally.
*I later learned that she co-starred in "Bulworth", "There's Something About Mary" and "Evolution", all of which I had seen years earlier.
