why did it take them so long?

/she desperately needs a throat punch.

Hey, if I blow Jimmy Kimmel, can I have a TV show too?

If she'd just asked me, I could have saved her a flight across the ocean.

Well, if you dig awkward, hairy, horse-faced, buck-toothed whores... so be it.

I have never found here funny. Just annoying.

50 euros for a 40 minute set? That's around 65 US dollars right there. Shoot, my NIN tickets were only 35$ and including the opening act that's around three and a half hours of entertainment right there.

She got what she deserved.

RTFA, subtard, they booed her for doing too short of a set. Traditionally when people are upset at not getting more of something it's because they like it. Thus the whole "wanting more" aspect.

I find that I can't really pin down my feelings on her. She's somewhat attractive, but I could just as easily pass her on a street and not notice unless someone pointed her out; she's sometimes funny, but I can't point to any particular humor; she'd probably be insane in bed, but I have no concrete basis to pin that on.

So, to sum up, I'd probably hit it if someone pointed her out at a bar, she told a decent joke and proceeded to deep throat a popsicle.

Wait...what were we discussing?

Also... Lewis CK came to my school a couple weeks ago and performed a 90 minute set for 5 bucks a ticket (15 if you weren't a student).

Don't worry guys, shouting down every comedian you "don't get" leaves plenty of gigs for Carlos Mencia, Dane Cook, and Larry the Cable Guy.

"Clever things make people feel stupid, and unexpected things make them feel scared."

/Not calling Silverman clever, just pointing out that axing anything out of the ordinary makes for the land of puppet people (put it on the tv, it's true).

Actually, worse. £50.

It was London. They don't use Euros in the UK for some reason or other.

Silverman is the least funny "comic" evar. Period. Evar.
 
2008-10-21 04:27:07 PM  
she isn't funny but that article sounds like BS from someone that she pissed off, unless the quoted yells from the audience were the writer's own, kind of long & specific.

Hey we went to see Ricky Gervais here in LA and he was underwhelming, too. Foreign exchange indeed.

How about there? Do you find there funny?

Sorta cute... check
annoying JAP voice... check
foul, disgusting mouth... check

Yeah, she's a winner! When will comics realize that dirty words, in and of themselves are NOT funny... at least to those of us who grew up beyond junior high!

The people who so strongly hate Silverman on Fark are by and large people whose opinions are repellent to me, so Sarah wins by default.

Dude, you need to get me the hook up on those NIN tickets...

I rest my case. Oh, how was that food-fight in the cafeteria, today?

I don't hate her, I just have no idea who she is. The first time I heard of her was the other day (on Fark) and now I read that she's the 'world's hottest, most controversial comedian'. Somehow I doubt it.

You just try being funny after getting raped by a doctor.

I laugh because of her courage.

Neil Hamburger begs to differ.

But..but..she's a semi-cute middle aged woman using dirty words! How could that bit not work? That's gold, Jerry! Gold!

I almost feel bad about how good that made me feel.
 
2008-10-21 05:25:36 PM  
I'm not familiar with her standup, but her sitcom is hilarious. It's so patently bizarre and cruel that I can't help but laugh.
 
2008-10-21 05:26:14 PM  
she shoulda stripped
I'd pay to see her naked
Not a lot, but i would pay
 
2008-10-21 05:39:17 PM  
The Matt Damon thing was funny. That's about it, though. And I shudder when I think about the hair. Not hot.

Really? I find it less funny than the previous season of Last Comic Standing. And I might add that that was a sucky season.

I will gladly deliver it, with my throbbing choad.

She's about as funny as Margaret Cho.

/not gay, so they both suck

People have different tastes I guess. I never miss an episode.

Except Mitch Hedberg wasn't funny.

Maybe part of the problem is you believe there was a non-sucky season of Last Comic Standing.

I actually like Sarah. Meh. So what?

Your favourite comedian sucks. Especially if s/he has ever been a cast member of MadTV.
