Bios

Emmy winner Sarah Silverman is as versatile of a performer as they come. Her repertoire includes everything from film and television, stand-up comedy, to iconic online videos, and she added author to this list when she released a book in 2010, The New York Times Bestseller, The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee. Silverman recently wrapped production on Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West opposite Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson and Amanda Seyfried, which will be released next year, and she will soon debut a new hour-long stand-up special, We are Miracles, on HBO in November. Additionally, Silverman is a part of JASH, a new comedy collective on YouTube featuring original content by Silverman (and friends Michael Cera, Tim & Eric and Reggie Watts).

Silverman was nominated for a 2009 Primetime Emmy in the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series category for her portrayal of a fictionalized version of herself in her Comedy Central series “The Sarah Silverman Program.” This marked Comedy Central’s first ever Emmy nomination in a scripted acting category. She also received a WGA nomination for her work on the show. Silverman won a Primetime Emmy in 2008 in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for her musical collaboration with Matt Damon. In addition, she was honored with a Best Actress Webby Award for her online video “The Great Schlep,” in which she persuaded young Jewish kids to encourage their grandparents in Florida to vote for President Obama prior to the 2008 election.

Last year Silverman voiced a character in the Oscar nominated Disney animated film Wreck It Ralph, alongside John C. Reilly, and she was also seen starring opposite Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen in the Sarah Polley dramedy Take This Waltz. In 2004 Silverman made an impressive splash with her concert film Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic. Directed by Liam Lynch, the film garnered major attention at the Toronto Film Festival and created huge national buzz. Silverman also garnered critical praise in the documentary feature, The Aristocrats in which 100 of the industry’s most prominent comedians tell a version of the same joke. Her other film credits include, Peep World, I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With, The School of Rock, There’s Something About Mary and The Way of The Gun.

Silverman co-starred on the Fox comedy “Greg the Bunny”, and has guest starred in a slew of acclaimed and notable television shows such as the Emmy nominated drama “The Good Wife,” and “Monk,” which earned her an Emmy nomination in 2008 in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category, “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Seinfeld,” and “Mr. Show with Bob and David.” Silverman also lent her voice to the Comedy Central show, “Crank Yankers.” 

Silverman was dubbed “the most outrageously funny woman alive,” by Rolling Stone. With her comedic timing and stage presence it’s no surprise that Sarah has been asked to host major award shows. In 2007 she hosted the MTV Movie Awards and she has also twice hosted the Independent Spirit Awards.

Silverman grew up in New Hampshire and attended New York University. In 1993 she joined “Saturday Night Live” as a writer and feature performer and has not stopped working since.

Silverman currently resides in Los Angeles.
