Comedic Confidence With Sarah Silverman

Comedy can seem simple, but having confidence with a room full of people laughing at you can be difficult. Sarah Silverman reveals how she maintains confidence through the laughter, heckling, and thrown objects.

In a recent interview with Jamie Foxx on Off Script she goes into details of how she gained confidence by her dad teaching her swear words when she was a child. Silverman says, ” I think it was a lack of knowing better because I had one of those crazy dads that thought it would be hilarious to teach their 3-year-old swears.”

Silverman goes onto say that the reactions she would receive from adults when she would say swear words would give her joy, realizing she could get this feeling from comedy. She also talked about her embarrassing moments that built her confidence, including bombing during stand-up acts.

She talks about one of her first performances for Showtime at the Apollo, when she was performing the audience started throwing subway tokens and coins at her on stage. Foxx also shared his failed performance experience for Showtime at the Apollo, saying that Sinbad introduced him as a comedian from the West Coast and people were booing him off the stage before he walked on.

Silverman contributes all the hard times to her gained experience as an actor in both film and television. She also has entered the streaming world with her new Hulu series I Love You, America; which is about people with different political ideologies and how they can co-exist in the current political climate.
