Comedy on the Edge

Sarah Silverman works at the offensive edge of comedy in a style that lulls you into comfortability and then hits you in the blind side of prejudice and hypocrisy. Silverman in her act speaks with perfect diction and good posture, but when you listen to what she is saying it is shocking as she touches on taboo subjects. In Jesus is Magic a live concert is combined with some filmed musical numbers and framing devices to create a concert film that captures the sensibility of a comic who is bold and unafraid to offend. It’s not for everyone, but I think that if it clicks with you, you’ll really enjoy it.
