Sarah Kate Silverman (born December 1, 1970) is an American comedian, writer and actress. Although usually credited as Sarah Silverman, she is sometimes credited by her nickname Big S or Sarah 'Big S' Silverman. Her comedy deals with topical humor and satire, societal taboos, and controversial topics such as racism, sexism, and religion. Her comedy acts are sometimes performed from a caricatured or stereotypical Jewish-American princess perspective, in which, according to Village Voice writer Michael Musto, she mocks bigotry and ethnic or religious stereotypes by endorsing them ironically. Silverman stars in and produces the Sarah Silverman Program, which debuted February 1, 2007, on Comedy Central.
