Popular comedian, actor and writer Sarah Silverman will site down with Bravo’s Emmy-winning series “Inside the Actors Studio,” hosted by James Lipton this month. The episode featuring Sarah Silverman will air on Thursday, October 22 at 8pm ET/PT.
Host James Lipton will interview the two-time Emmy-winning performer in anticipation of her leading role in the upcoming film, “I Smile Back,” which hits theaters October 23rd. Silverman was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series category in 2009 for Comedy Central’s “The Sarah Silverman Program.” In 2013, Silverman debuted an hour-long stand-up HBO special, “We are Miracles,” which earned her a 2014 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special.
“It is no surprise that Sarah Silverman is a phenomenon who holds nothing back,” said James Lipton. “On our ‘Inside the Actors Studio’ stage, she not only lived up to that reputation, but surpassed it, revealing hilariously and touchingly the secrets behind the tantalizing secrets of her life and work.”
With a versatile career including film, television, stand-up comedy and more, Silverman takes the audience from her childhood to the established success she endures today. She discusses her struggle with depression as an adolescent, as well as what drove her to entertaining others through humor at an early age.
The actress also delves into her New York Times best-selling memoir “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee,” and why such a serious setback in her teenage years ultimately defined her future as an effective performer. Additionally, viewers learn of Silverman’s experience as a female pioneer on the comedy scene and why she decided to expand her ever-growing repertoire starring in the intense drama feature, “I Smile Back.”
