Early Sarah Silverman Standup Routine

It is always fun to get a look back at a comedian’s early performances, especially when they don’t suck. In the past I’ve posted about Jerry Seinfeld, David Letterman, and the cast of 30 Rock.

So what a pleasant surprise to find this 1992 gem of a performance by a 22 year old claiming to be Sarah Silverman. Who can tell, it might really be her. Just think how many people she has offended since!


Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
