As an actress, creator, writer, executive producer, comedian, and author Silverman is one of the most versatile talents in entertainment. She was most recently seen starring in The Lonely Island’s “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” and will next be seen in both “The Book of Henry” and “Battle of the Sexes.” Previously, Silverman starred in “I Smile Back,” the film adaptation of the Amy Koppelman novel. The drama premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim and was later released in theaters. She received much praise for her role as “Laney Brooks,” culminating in a 2016 Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.”
On stage, Silverman continues to cement her status as a force in standup comedy. In 2013, she debuted her hour-long, critically-acclaimed HBO standup special “Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles,” which earned her the 2014 Primetime Emmy Award for “Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special.” The special received an additional Primetime Emmy Awards nomination that year for “Outstanding Variety Special” as well as a Writers Guild Awards nomination. In September 2014, Silverman released the special as an audio album, which went on to receive a 2015 GRAMMY Award nomination for “Best Comedy Album.”
Silverman has made memorable guest appearances on a number of acclaimed and notable television shows, including “Monk,” which earned her a 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards nomination for “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.” She continues to lend her voice to the Emmy-nominated Fox animated series “Bob’s Burgers” and has a recurring role on the Golden Globe-nominated Showtime series “Masters of Sex”, which will return for its fourth season this year. Additionally, she is a part of JASH, a comedy collective on YouTube featuring original content by Silverman and friends Michael Cera, Tim & Eric and Reggie Watts.
