THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM
IT MAY have taken seven years for Sarah Silverman’s outrageous comedy series to make it to free- to- air, but fear not: these episodes are every bit as hilarious and envelope- pushing as when they were first broadcast. With earlier episodes tackling abortion and sexual deviance, tonight Silverman takes on race. After she gets into an argument about whether being black is harder than being Jewish, she puts on blackface to settle the matter. It’s all in the name of postmodern irony, people!
