It’s about time… Read More

Have we got great news for you. Sarah Silverman will be starring in her first ever HBO stand-up special, Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, Deadline reports.

Taped in front of about three dozen folks at Largo in LA, the special skewers such subjects as porn, religion, politics, and “the miracle of existence.” Silverman has appeared on a number of HBO shows, dating to the ’90s series The Larry Sanders Show and Mr. Show With Bob And David. We Are Miracles is produced by Funny Or Die and Black Gold Films and executive produced by Heidi Herzon, Mike Farah, Anna Wenger, Betsy Koch, Amy Zvi and Sarah Silverman. Liam Lynch directs.

It’s unclear how Silverman has gotten this far in her successful comedic career without her own special, but whatever, we’re ready and excited. Her sitcom, Susan 313, wasn’t picked up by NBC, and we were greatly disappointed. Silverman posted the pilot episode on her YouTube channel and it left us wanting more, but nothing was to come. So, at 10 p.m. on November 23rd we’ll get what we’ve been waiting for.

Mazel tov, Sarah! If you haven’t yet watched the pilot for Susan 313, be sure to below.
