Um why do people think she`s funny? It might`ve been okay if she`d told some more jokes. The performance was boring; Oh look at me, I`m sticking a microphone up to ass. WOW harharhar

first of all-sarah silvermans hysterical, anyone who says otherwise doesnt know her at all. and shes an amazing actress, like in school of rock

second of all-whoever couldnt realize the fact that she probably didnt get the bright idea to do that song, and was probably told to by a writer just like everything else in those sort of shows, is a moron and a waste of sperm.

i thought she was really funny, but thats an opinion. the fact is its not right to be saying you dont like her because of something a writer told her to do. i thought it was funny and clever anyway, and i doubt anyone could have done it much better than she did.

oh one more thing, im 14, and i think female comedians are hysterical

that was me, bigbonny. and I LOVE monty python. python was both silly and smart. i was just kind of pointing out the fact that you can`t lump all american humor as blatant and stupid and brit humor as clever and witty.

It`s just American Humour as far as I can see. And to whoever said about Benny Hill and The Young Ones... yeah those are like 20 and 30 years old now, the UK *has* kind of moved beyond Monty Python now ya know?

And Im not insulting Americans, Im just saying that its kind of American Humour which is very physical and blatant, its not usually satire or subtle.

Ahh, I get the gist of it. Living across the Pond, I`ve never heard of her. I just found the whole jammering-stammering part boring, and then all of a sudden she`s singing out of her arse and people are laughing. I didn`t get it.

I actually found it funny. I like Sarah Silverman. Maybe if you were more familiar with her, you`d find it funny.
The whole point of it is that she was stammering and stuttering (like you pointed out in your first post) as a character. She was parodying the typical maudlin, sensitive, Vegas-type performer who goes in for all of that "here`s hoping we can be a better people..." crap.
So, that was the set-up. To appear as if she`s being sensitive and thoughtful. Then, she sings out of her pussy and arse. Which is the last thing you`d expect a sensitive person to do while singing a gospel song.
Explaining it probably won`t make it funnier, but I had to try.

Fair enough. I didn`t like it, and I wanted to illustrate on what I didn`t like about it. From the way you speak of that post, my guess is that you found it boring. Good, you were supposed to. I wanted to bring home exactly how boring I found it. It was naive of me to not expect a backlash, but that won`t change my mind. If someone finds it funny, fair enough. That`s their choice. It`s my choice to dislike it.

Sooo... I wish to know, from anyone willing to tell me, why is a woman singing out of her arsehole funny?

Oh, I don`t claim to have the authority to say what is right or wrong concerning humor. I was just pointing out the fact that different people have different ideas about what`s funny and what isn`t. And I used the example of you getting smacked in the head to make that very point. I suppose it might`ve seemed a little mean-spirited on my part, but I only did it because you went off on the big huge post about how awful you thought it was.

Well well, Enohead, this is an example of hypocrisy, as your post would suggest you`ve had the good grace to never criticise anything, ever, which we all know is a lie. I didn`t like it, and I was voicing that opinion. Who are you to say what is right or wrong concerning humour?

Well, KMeTG - you ask "why is that funny?"
I guess it all depends on what you find humor in. Everybody has different ideas about what is funny and what isn`t.
For example, if someone hit you in the back of the head with a iron bar, you probably wouldn`t think it was funny. But I would find it hilarious.

And now I`ve actually heard what she has to say, I wish I hadn`t.

Just watched all of it. A woman sings through her pussy and arsehole. Why is that funny?

Boring. "This is so cheesy, I guess I... I... I wanted to come here and... sing a song... to... erm... I dunno, I dunno... ... ... ... maybe inspire to, to be the best person we can be, you know. Maybe no the best person in the world. Just a... a... er... a better person today than... than... than we were yesterday. Amazing Grace." Oh for poo`s sake GET ON WITH IT!!! No-one gives a drat about her reasons for it, they just want to hear something funny. It was like they pulled a random person off the street and said "Hey, do this." Not all Americans are stupid, but she won`t help break that stereotype!

My suggestion... especially regarding chauvenists/racists (case in point BladeofKeyZ) is that when people feel they can`t achieve something, or feel intimidated by said-thing they demoralize it... I wouldn`t of said this until I saw...
`Actually, I have laughed at women... gender confused, unattractive women.

I still say you can`t be hot and funny at the same time. I would like to be proven wrong, though.`

I mean I don`t care if you just don`t like her... but this makes me think that you insult her jokes because it makes you feel better about yourself - her being attracctive and you being... whatever you are ;) either way...

Anyway I thought Sarah Silverman was really funny in the Aristocrats - I thought her sketch was one of the best haha.

that wuz to shockingly C-R-A-P for words...
^when u say no comment, madmax11, that usually means u have no comment to make, it isn`t just something u say to be funny, so there

and third, i would bet $1,000,000 that every single one of you that say, "women can`t be funny" or, "women are horrible comedians" enjoy a particular female comedian very well, very, very well
and as a second note 2 that, u all have laughed at a female at SOME point in ur life, if u say nuh - uh, 1. ur really boring person 2. go fudge urself, and 3. liar, u will now burn in hell

I guess I`m just an average-aged person because I thought this was funny. Not roll on the ground peeing myself funny, but I`d like to see all you 13-17 year old sexiest elitists get up on a national stage and be funnier.

... That wasn`t good. I mean, at the beginning I was ok with it until she had to sing her boring song. If she was good at it maybe it would of been better, but she wasn`t that good and amazing great should be sang only by considering the time, place and occasion.
