Sarah Silverman to Return to HBO

The actress-comedian is on board for a comedy special and late-night series pilot.


Award-winning comedian, actress, writer and producer Sarah Silverman will return to HBO for a new stand-up comedy special and late-night series pilot order.

The proposed late-night series will involve Silverman “weighing in on the mishigas of the week and taking live video calls.”

“I’m as passionate talking about my face-washing routine as I am talking about why billionaires cost us money,” said Silverman. “Nothing’s off the table and nothing’s too high or lowbrow for me. I mean — look at my face — I’m literally all brow.”

Most recently, Silverman served as creator, executive producer and host of the Emmy-nominated Hulu talk series I Love You, America and she is currently in production on the Universal Pictures comedy Marry Me. Her latest stand-up comedy special, A Speck of Dust, garnered two Emmy nominations and a Grammy nomination. In 2014, Silverman won a writing Emmy for her 2013 HBO comedy special Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, which was also nominated for Outstanding Variety Special that year. The special also earned a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album.

Silverman has appeared in HBO’s Mr. Show and The Larry Sanders Show. Along with Judd Apatow and Amy Zvi, she will serve as executive producer on her late-night series pilot.
