Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic

Synopsis: Sarah Silverman appears before an audience in Los Angeles with several sketches, taped outside the theater, intercut into the stand-up performance. Themes include race, sex, and religion. Her comic persona is a self-centered hipster, brash and clueless about her political incorrectness. A handful of musical numbers punctuate the performance. It begins and ends with her in conversation with two friends: at the start, she's the loser compared to their recent artistic successes; by the end, she's the star, in her dressing room, dismissive and cutting.

I said 'Shut up, you stupid twat' And...

- Oh my God.

- I know.

Because... And then I'm like:

'Oh f***, what did I just do?'

But then the audience loved it.

They went nuts.

And she looked like an idiot, like they're all like,

she is a stupid twat that should shut up.

- That's awesome.

- So it was like felt really good. So that's on the record.

It's all like... So many more copies.

Called someone a stupid twat on it.

Who knows. I just glut out

the record finally.

It's so good, so good.

Perhaps I'm a bit producing it. It's crazy.


And then this book. The stupid idea

I had about how guys are jerks.

I went on Oprah with it.

Oh my God, why didn't you tell me?

I would have loved to see that.

I didn't know how would it go,

I wanted it away. You know.

- Can I come on to?

- Yeah, for sure.

Oh my God, that's so cool.

And Dacky was in it.

Cause I brought him to the table reading they needed

a dog for one scene and then like "He's perfect"

He is perfect.

And then I sold that script

to this Comedy Central.

- A sports thing.

- Sport show of all things.

I know. I don't even know

anything about sports.

Who loves.

It's concept, I guess.

What about a...

What about you?

What's been going on?

I haven't seen you in a while.

So much.

- Wow, really?

- Yeah.

You've been getting out a lot.

Wow, cool.

Are you shopping it around or...?

No it's doing it.

I mean it's...

- I mean it's gonna be on. It's a show.

- On TV?

No, but it's actually

like a play slash movie.

- It's cool. Like in a theatre.

- Wow.


It sounds amazing. What is it? What's it about?

Are you like the star of it? What is it?

It's about a ...

the Holocaust.

Yeah. And it's kind of a...

But it's funny.

And it's also musical.

- Oh my God, that sounds awesome.

- I know.

When are you doing it?

It's a real opus, you know.

You know what, tonight. And it's

actually tonight so I'd better skid detail.

- Right now?

- Yeah. I've got a bunch of stuff to do pre-pro.

Can we come see it?

I wanna see it.

Sh*t. It sold out. It's totally sold out,

every scene. I know, it sucks.

What if we just hang backstage and

like watch from the wings or something?

Yeah. Can we just be backstage?

We can stand by the

curtains and be quiet.

I can't think why not.

- So will you let us know...?

- Yeah, sure, definitely.

I'm excited. I'm totally excited.

So see you guys tonight.

- Good luck.

- See you at the show.


"Here I go again with my big mouth."

"Spelling off like I got some going."

"I wrote a show and it's playing tonight?"

"I'm so foolish sh*t man. What was I thinking?"

"I gotta write a show but how am I gonna

do a show. And I don't even have a show to write."

"I never wrote a show, but if I ever wrote a show,

I bet that all of them would know and thinking bites."

"You know what. F*** down."

"I could write a show."

"I could write a show. I'll just do it."

"I'll write a show."

"All it takes is elbow grease"

"And I could write a show."

"I'll write a show tonight."

"I hope I do it right."

"I could take this mixed up

world and put it in a show."

"I'll write a show alright."

"And I'll have it by tonight."

"All I need is a theatre space

and a bag of weed and a star."

"A star!"


"Good job, Sarah. I'm writing a whole show for tonight.

I don't even have a star. Who's gonna be my star?"
