Comedy Central’s “The Sarah Silverman Program” is back next Wednesday, October 8th with a special two night premiere event! Wheeeeee. I deiced to fall in love with her after watching this video.
This season join her and the rest of the gang as they discover marijuana, bring a lawsuit against the country of Mongolia and much more. The premiere episode will be followed by a second on Thursday, the 9th.
“The Sarah Silverman Program” stars Silverman portraying a character (aptly named Sarah Silverman) whose absurd daily life is told through narrative and an occasional song. In each episode, Sarah falls into unique, unsettling and always hilarious predicaments, with her sister Laura (played by real-life sister Laura Silverman) her nerdy gay neighbors, Brian and Steve (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee) and dim-witted Officer Jay (Jay Johnston ) never far from her side.
In the premiere episode, “High, It’s Sarah,” Sarah gets high for the first time, then leaves herself voicemails imploring her sober self to carry out her stoned inspirations. Some of these thoughts prove to be good ideas, while others definitely don’t. Meanwhile, Laura and Jay have relationship trouble when Jay inadvertently lets the world know that he had a “nocturnal emission” as a result of a dream about a local news correspondent.
Guest stars Garry Marshall and Missi Pyle come along for the crazy ride.
