Tonight, she continues to refine material about Scientology, Palestinians and Jews, and Kabbalah: "I just came from an amazing Kabbalah meeting. I just feel so much better ... than you. How can you explain Kabbalah? I wish I could just download it onto you or something. It takes a lot of studying to really get it. It's like, Kabbalah comes from inside US ... weekly magazine ... Kabbalah is an ancient, Judaic mystical mysticism. Judaic, yes, it's a sect of Judaism, but it's like the best of it, only. It's like being Jewish but without the big nose."
After her set, a little after 11 p.m., she bumps into David Spade. They chat about her new stuff, which he likes. Two identical middle-aged twins, aspiring comics, come up to compliment her. "Oh my God" Silverman says. "You're twins! You could, like, play a kid on a sitcom!"
Silverman is gracious, but she's eager to get home. Despite their careers, she says, she and Kimmel are not late night types. "We're TIVO/Scrabble people," she says. She dons a wool coat and wraps a long maroon knit scarf around her neck. Before she gets into her Saab and drives off, she whips out her PDA and shows some video of Kimmel asleep in his bed with her dog, Duck, a Chihuahua/pug mix that she rescued from the Van Nuys animal shelter. I kinda want to hook up with my boyfriend tonight," she says apologetically. "I'd like to be spotted canoodling with him."
