"Sarah Silverman joins this year's unmatched comedy lineup on the DPAC stage. We are thrilled to host one of Silverman's select stand-up dates this spring. Fans will get the rare opportunity to experience her uncensored humor and hilarious sarcasm up close and personal at DPAC," said Emily McLoughlin, Marketing Director for Concerts and Comedy at DPAC.
Silverman's repertoire includes all media- film and television, stand-up comedy, iconic online videos, even prank phone calls, and she added author to this list when she released her first book in 2010, the New York Times Bestseller, The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee. Silverman voices a character in the Oscar-nominated Disney animated film Wreck it Ralph, alongside John C. Reilly and Jane Lynch. She was recently seen starring opposite Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen in the dramedy Take This Waltz.
Silverman was nominated for a 2009 Primetime Emmy in the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series category for her portrayal of a fictionalized version of herself in her Comedy Central series The Sarah Silverman Program. This marked Comedy Central's first ever Emmy nomination in a scripted acting category. She also received a WGA nomination for her work on the show. Silverman won a Primetime Emmy in 2008 in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for her musical collaboration with Matt Damon. In addition, she was honored with a Best Actress Webby Award for her online video The Great Schlep, in which she persuaded young Jewish kids to encourage their grandparents in Florida to vote for President Obama prior to the 2008 election.
