In the first season of the critically-acclaimed The Sarah Silverman Program, Sarah gets hepped up on cough syrup, takes in a homeless man and poops her pants.
With her unique perspective on life and her ability to turn just about everything into a song, find out why Sarah Silverman is an American treasure - an offensive, filthy-mouthed treasure.
The Sarah Silverman Program stars Silverman who plays a character (aptly named Sarah Silverman) whose absurd daily life is told through narrative and an occasional song.
In each episode, Sarah falls into unique, unsettling and always hilarious predicaments, with her sister (played by real-life sister Laura Silverman), her nerdy gay neighbours, Brian and Steve (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee) and dim-witted Officer Jay (Jay Johnston) never far from her side.
Follow Sarah and the rest of the gang in what is totally the best second season ever as she becomes romantically involved with God and decides to become black for a day to prove it's harder to be Jewish.
The series is based on an idea by Silverman, Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab. Silverman, Schrab, Heidi Herzon and Dan Sterling are the executive producers. Schrab also served as director of the pilot and several of the episodes.
Gary Mann is the executive in charge of production for Comedy Central.
