New Jew Review:
The Sarah Silverman Program

She's one of my favorite foul mouthed comedians out there today. Dane Cook can blow her, she's that good. For those of you not in the know, tonight "The Sarah Silverman Program" starring Sarah Silverman makes it's way onto Comedy Central's lineup. Billed as a "Curb Your Enthusiasm" with poop jokes, the program looks promising.

Here's what Comedy Central has to say about it:

Step into the incredible world of Sarah Silverman as she goes about her life, which on any given day, can include taking in a homeless man, exploring her sexuality or encouraging a young girl to enter a pageant in order to fulfill her own childhood dreams.

Sarah plays a character named Sarah Silverman whose absurd daily
life is told through an array of scripted scenes and song. In each episode, Sarah manages to fall into unique, sometimes unsettling and always hilarious predicaments, with her sister (played by real-life sister Laura Silverman), her geeky gay neighbors, Brian and Steve (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee) and Officer Jay (Jay Johnston) never far from her side.

So will it float? Look, any show that promises to show us Jimmy Kimmel dressed as a woman, and Brian Posehn (one of the "Comedians of Comedy") as a gay man combined with the attitude and jokes found in Silverman's movie "Jesus Is Magic," has got a real good shot. Don't believe me? Well, check out some tracks from the soundtrack to the movie and you be the judge, ya pube.

I watched Sarah Silverman's show last night and thought it was was phenomenal. OK, there were a lot of ka-ka jokes. But the humor was fresh, new, twisted. The writing was really fabulous.

I enjoyed it too. I'm especially looking forward to next week's episode featuring Zach Galifianakis as a homeless man Sarah takes in to her home only to let him live out of a cardboard box.
