    There is plenty of irony in Silverman's presentations, but her title is sincere.

    It hardly needs saying that Ms. Silverman’s material is not for everybody.... But she isn’t spewing things out randomly, hoping to get by on shock value. The execution is fairly intricate.

    Few comics could get away with such an irreverent act, but Silverman pulls it off with her disconnected style that blends vulgarity and vulnerability.

    While both these specials boast a fair number of yuks, we won’t repeat any lines.... We don’t have a durable enough dash key on our computer to start regurgitating Silverman's set.

    Silverman has never been sharper or seemingly more confident as a comedian and performer, and the laughs are there--just not quite as many as might be expected.

    Silverman performs her proudly raunchy set before an intimate 39-seat audience, which is only fitting for someone who is so defiantly in-your-face.

    A brisk and pleasingly outrageous hour-long set taped before a crowd of 39 people in a very small Los Angeles venue, she shows off her ability to segue from naif to sharp-tongued devil in a split-second.

    Sarah Silverman's always been a great comedian who's unapologetic style of stand-up causes several viewers to shy away or possibly write her off as insensitive. Although some great stand-up comics get away with more crude humor than others, such as Louis C.K. or Donald Glover, for whatever reason Silverman's performances have often been scrutinized for just that reason. The fact that she doesn't let her comedy suffer from how people might potentially react is an amazing display of how dedicated she can be at times. For example, at certain points in the show she simply embraces the silence said after a crude joke and works her best with the crowd of only 50 which includes herself and the camera crew (39 without). Which brings me to the crowd. The biggest vice I had with the performance was how it was too dependent on just how the crowd received some of the jokes. None the less, the material was great and although this performance didn't change anyone's life, it's always good to remember that it's a stand-up set and not a groundbreaking documentary. Expand

    Although filled with random and, at times, confusing obscenity, Silverman's performance is still indicative of her unique stage presence and cheery attitude and a large amount of laughs. Expand

    Wow. I've never watched Sarah Silverman's stand-up, though I've heard she's the kind of person you either love or hate. Well, it seemed like everyone in the club absolutely adored her, as they were essentially laughing at everything she said, joke or otherwise. I on the other hand chuckled once, and cringed for the remaining thirty minutes I subjected myself too. This woman just does not appeal to my sense of humor. She's filthy but not clever, a fatal combination. If you're like me, watch Bill Burr's new special on Netflix. That man knows how to tell a freaking joke. Expand

    A extremely stiff delivery and same old stuff, dead babies, Jews killed Jesus her self adulation of her own breasts. I'm surprised they could find 39 people that brain dead to find her funny...but hey it is LA. Expand

    I saw her for the first time on the HBO special. She is horrible. She is just not funny. If she thinks she is shocking anyone and somehow it is funny she is wrong. I can hear the same tasteless jokes and vulgarity on the subway. If the best subject matter she can come up with are the 9/11 widows then she needs to find other work. She isn't worth another word.

    Sarah Silverman can be extremely funny, I first noticed her on the Comedy Central roasts...but this time she was anemic and unfocused. I would rather flip thru the phone book than waste my time watching this show.

    Sorry Sarah...try harder.
