Sarah Is Magic*


This is an important day for true fans of comedy. Today, dear friends, Jesus Is Magic comes out. Jesus is, of course, Sarah Silverman's movie (she wrote and stars in it), which has been anticipated highly (by us) since the trailer started running before The Aristocats Aristocrats all those months ago. What's even better is that it's getting pretty good reviews, in case our enthusiasm isn't contagious enough to get you into the theater.

Most of the movie is her stand-up, but there's also other stuff mixed in. We're not entirely sure what other stuff, since we haven't seen it yet, but we're sure it's going to be sweet. Incidentally, we saw Sarah at The Improv a few weeks ago...and she wasn't terribly great that night... Uuuuuh... But, in her defense, it was clear she wasn't drunk and/or stoned (which is rare), so we still lurve her anyway.

So, to those of you in L.A., New York or Chicago, get thee to a googolplex! To everyone who lives anywhere else (why would you do that?), um, enjoy Jumanji in Space: We Couldn't Get Robin Williams, but We Got Dax Shepard... Zathura.

*It's occurred to us that this would have been great for a "Things with More Appeal," but we're sure none of you noticed we decided to end that ritualistic masturbation, when it didn't appear on Wednesday. We even started to do a "Things with More Appeal.13" post that day which would simply have said "Never doing this again." But then, we decided to go see what was on the teevee.

I saw "Jesus Is Magic" too, and I'm not sure it was OK to laugh!

But I laughed anyway.

Here's my post on the movie.
