Sarah Silverman has been performing comedy since 1992 and quickly got an opportunity to write and perform for "Saturday Night Live" in 1993 and 1994. While her time there was short-lived, she used it as motivation to write, perform, and better her craft. She eventually used that experience to write sketches for “The Larry Sanders Show,” which parodied her time at SNL playing ‘The New Writer", a new staff writer whose jokes are not used due to the chauvinism and bias of the male head writer.
Sarah has done many things since with comedy albums, TV shows, and activism. Next time you are looking for a laugh, check her out!
