Sarah Silverman lands her first HBO standup special
HBO announced this week that Sarah Silverman will get her first comedy special on the premium cable giant, prompting more than a few people to ponder, "Really? What took so long."
Titled "Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles," the special will tape in Los Angeles in May and will debut on HBO this fall.
"Sarah Silverman is a fresh, fearless and utterly original comedy voice," blurbs HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo. "I’m thrilled that we can bring the humor of this unique talent to our viewers."
Silverman earned Emmy nominations for "The Sarah Silverman Show" and a guest stint on "Monk" and won an Emmy as part of the team behind a "Jimmy Kimmel Live" song. She was most recently heard on the big screen in "Wreck-It Ralph" and seen in "Take This Waltz."
