Sarah Silverman loose in Hollywood
We get a lot of press releases here at LAist, and it isn't like us to simply repeat them. But when it comes to telling you about the Sarah Silverman performance at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater tomorrow night at 9:30pm (5 bucks!), we have to pass this along intact:
The first time Sarah Silverman performed at UCB Theatre, she nonchalantly unwrapped a tampon while performing her material, took a sip of water, put the tampon in her mouth then flung the bugger against the theatre wall. She continued her set, never addressing what just happened. Four months later the tampon remains stuck to our theatre wall, like a high school spitball.Best Week Ever’s DOUG BENSON invites his fancy, big-name, professional stand-up pals SARAH SILVERMAN, PAUL F.
