Sarah Silverman is about to follow in the footsteps of Louis C.K. and Wanda Sykes. She's taping a comedy special for HBO.
Given HBO's long history of comedy specials, it's a little surprising that this will be Silverman's first. But it's true: though Silverman pops up on productions such as "Talking Dead" and "Wreck-It Ralph," her last full-length comedy performance was the 2005 theatrical release, "Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic."
Silverman's special, "Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles" will tape in Los Angeles in May and debut on HBO in the fall, presented in association with Funny or Die.
It may be her first comedy special, but it's not the first time Silverman has done HBO comedy. She appeared as a performer on the HBO sketch comedy series "Mr. Show" from 1995 to 1997. She also appeared in three episodes of the comedy series "The Larry Sanders Show" and guested on "Real Time With Bill Maher."
