They say that comedy is all in the delivery, and it is never truer than with Silverman. She delivers the most outrageous sketches, tackles anything that smells like a sacred cow, and she does it with a lightness, and a disarmingly natural style, that you can’t help but be charmed – and amused to your core. That is unless you are offended and irate. I can see she’s not for everyone. That her humor can be offensive and overbearing to some. But for all the bathroom humor – fart jokes and poopie snickering – there’s a vein of incisive social commentary that runs through her humor that is brilliant. This from someone who really cannot abide Porky’s slapstick or Sandleresque mugging.
She hints at one point that laughing at yourself is a wonderful and necessary thing. That’s her secret. I think she’s the freshest comic and one of the most talented writers working today. And she sings too.
