Sarah Silverman is one of comedy’s edgiest talents, with her prom queen innocence masking her ignorance and prejudices. (It’s just an act.) Her shtick is being sweet and a bigot with sunny irony.
So I was a little caught off-guard seeing this video. Not a moment of irony, not a word of joking. It appears shot in her home while she was emotional about the deaths of gay teens nationwide. It also capsulizes lots of other gay rights issues. Watch.
