    For all its shock-driven, laugh-out-loud moments, what makes Jesus so entertaining is that it puts you in the presence of a dementedly sharp mind -- one that understands that leftist subversion doesn't have to coddle or breast-feed the choir.
  2. She is so funny she should come with a seven-day waiting period.
  3. Silverman is wickedly fast. Her timing kills.

    Sarah Silverman's cartoon bunny rabbit smile could make her the poster child for orthodontia, but it's her timing that's the real thing of beauty.

    How can such awful things come out of the mouth of such a pretty girl?
  6. Ms. Silverman is a skilled performer, and Jesus Is Magic is occasionally very funny, but don't be fooled: naughty as she may seem, she's playing it safe.
  7. The hot comic du jour wants to startle us but is merely startlingly dull.
