Seattle, WA – Live Nation welcomes Sarah Silverman to The Showbox on Sunday, February 11, 2007 at 7 p.m.
There is no doubt that Sarah Silverman’s star is on the rise. From stand-up comedy to film and television, Sarah has seen her share of success. But 2005 marked a huge year for the talented actress who is poised to make an equally impressive splash in 2006. The feature length film version of her one-woman show opened in theaters November 11th to rave reviews. Sarah co-starred on the FOX comedy Greg The Bunny opposite Eugene Levy. She has also guest starred in a slew of acclaimed and notable television shows, such as The Larry Sanders Show, Seinfeld, and Mr. Show with Bob and David. Silverman also lends her voice to the hugely successful Comedy Central show, Crank Yankers.

The film Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic, directed by Liam Lynch and filmed before a live crowd in Los Angeles in 2004 garnered major attention at the Toronto Film Festival and created huge national buzz. Silverman was in turn named one of the Entertainers of 2005 by Entertainment Weekly and landed herself a spot as the Breakthrough Comedian of the Year in People.

On the heels of the success of Jesus is Magic, Comedy Central recently ordered six episodes of Silverman’s television show, The Sarah Silverman Programme. The show, about a detached and eccentric woman with no discernible goals whose tale will be told through an array of comedic scenes and songs that, taken as a whole, compose a single day of her life, is (loosely) based on her life and is slated to premiere in February.
