Kimmel introduced his guest by focussing primarily on her comedy career, with a small reference to how "there's nothing awkward about her being here." However, Silverman immediately forced the conversation on to their seven year long relationship by presenting Kimmel with an unconventional guest gift: a box of his old things.
Silverman was a writer and occasional performer for 18 weeks on Saturday Night Live and starred in and produced The Sarah Silverman Program, which ran from 2007 to 2010 on Comedy Central, for which she was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.
She released an autobiography The Bedwetter in 2010.
It’s no surprise that the way Silverman portrays homosexuality on her program is controversial. At one point she decides she’s gay, then pouts when her friends laugh at her: “As a lesbian, I resent your laughter.” And of course, when she uses ‘gay’ as an epithet, she qualifies: “I don’t mean gay as in homosexual …I mean gay as in retarded.” Is Silverman criticizing homosexuality, or typical humor she’s known for, or trying to say something deeper, more important?
Brian and Steve are certainly an appealing change up for network television.
Silverman began dating Welsh actor Michael Sheen in January 2014.
They’ve been described as “geeky,” “schlumpy,” and, in the words of their creator, “big, orange and gay.” Brian (Brian Posehn) and Steve (Steve Agee) are the distinctly different ‘gaybors’ on the Sarah Silverman Program.Silverman, whose ‘Program’ was quickly renewed for a 14-episode second season, takes a sarcastic look at love throughout the show – her (real life and television) sister is regularly heckled for dating a cop.And her own quickie with God ends when he wants to cuddle and she just wants him to leave.Chubby, bearded, wearing glasses, they are as far from Will can get.In fact, their sexuality is so understated that the actors themselves claim they weren’t sure that their characters were gay until after the pilot and first episode were filmed.You have to hand it to Sarah Silverman; even amid a romantic split, she brings the funny.
