Sarah Silverman

In the foreword to her memoir The Bedwetter, published in 2010, Sarah Silverman wrote, “When I first selected myself to write the foreword for my book, I was flattered, and deeply moved.” The comic and actress is well-known for her controversial jokes. “Everybody blames the Jews for killing Christ,” she said in a standup routine. “And then the Jews try to pass it off on the Romans. I’m one of the few people that believe it was the blacks.” The Sarah Silverman Program ran on Comedy Central from 2007 to 2010.
