  1. 1

    Sarah Silverman is saying all of these things just to get some publicity. She knew what she said would have them up in arms. She goes from insulting her former boyfriend, to this, she just wants people to watch her TV show that sucks, I used to like her.



  2. 2

    Perez - considering how offensive you are to gay slurs and how much you advocate equality, one would think you wouldn't give these types of stories a stage. Laughing at mentally challenged CHILDREN is NOT funny. Sarah Silverman is pathetic and so are you. I have loved your site for a long time, but I will not be visiting it anymore and I will tell my friends to do the same. You disgust me.



  3. 3

    This is soo stupid , everyone knows what type of comedian she is , why cry when she does what she does?

    Clearly the Retards here were the organizers. What did they expect her to do? Change her style? And then afterward they insult her. What a bunch of uptight assholes. Go Sarah



  5. 5

    lmao I think Sarah Wins that one!



  6. 6

    lmao @ the aol joke



  7. 7

    Sarah Silverman is AWFUL. She's not funny at all



  8. 8

    I really don't think she's even funny anymore. I feel like when she first started, she had some really funny acts. Now it's just entirely crass, which doesn't take much intelligence to dream up. In this case, though, they shouldn't have hired her for the conference. It's their own fault if they weren't up-to-date on the likely content of her act.



  9. 9

    She's not funny. She will pay one day for her deeds. Shame on her.



  10. 10

    She has her moments, but watching her just makes me cringe.

    LOL TED is right. Sarah Silverman is for the lowest common denominator.



  12. 12

    i fucking hate this pendeja, apparently she has never been arround a child with Down syndrome, which incidentally are not retarded they are more intelligent than her and that your gordo maricon ….



  13. 13

    So much for being a cutting edge kind of conference. You invite Sarah, you get Sarah. You invite Kathy, you get Kathy. Why are those who invite female comedians so uptight after-the-fact?



  14. 14

    Well I guess if your self-described as being the "CHOSEN PEOPLE" then you are free from mediocrity no matter how UGLY you really are.



  15. 15

    OMG! I can't stand her! She's rude and crude and definitely NOT funny!
    I've tried watching her ,twice,and both times I could only deal with it for like 30 seconds. I am far from a prude but this woman is just a jerk.



  16. 16

    She is painfully unfunny and tries so hard to be "edgy" and "offensive". This is probably a publicity stunt to get people to watch her shitty show.



  17. 17

    Sierra 929 you said it all. Its not like the content of her schtick is any suprise. She was NOT a good choice for this forum. Thats not her fault. But, still, she just isn't very funny. Just tacky.

    Push Boundries???? Isn't that just fucking hilarious. Liberal insensitivity lives.



  19. 19

    Sarah,

    For a comedian, you are so sensitive.



  20. 20

    While I am not even close to being a prude and I accept almost any joke as being all in good fun, I think what she said about mentally challenged children is despicable, as they cannot stand up for themselves the same way anyone else can.

    I always found her humor to be a bit boring. I guess she is trying her best to get any publicity she can.



  21. 21

    Sarah Silverman confuses mean with funny. Her fan base needs to stop enabling her stupidity. Hey Sarah, you're a mean idiot. Hey TED, you knew what you were getting into…Stop hiring her because she's "edgy" and "hip". Hipsters need to get a backbone and stop laughing along with the bullies.



  22. 22

    Why would ANYONE hire her?!?!?!?!



  23. 23

    Sarah Silverman is a bitter, washed up tranny. She's not funny, looks like a collie, and has chronic halitosis.



  24. 24

    well, while I don't necessarily care for all of Sarah's material, I can say that to invite her with out knowing what type of material she uses is just plain ignorant. And while I don't really think it's very mature to sling words back and forth at each other, THAT WAS SO FUNNY!!! Last person on earth with an aol account!! OK it was worth it just to say that.

    I don't think she should have used inappropriate material in such a forum, like I said, that was the risk they took.



  25. 25

    Being a "special needs" person himself, you would think Internet cockroach Perez Hilton would be less inclined to support Sarah Silverman

  26. YUCK says – reply to this


    26

    I've said this before, this chick is totally lame. she has never uttered anything I thought was funny. she sucks put a fork in it. this bitch is done.
    **
    unfortunately I have watched her stand up act live more times than I would like to admit (for work Purposes only) and she has left me wanting to run out of every venue immediately. I look around and everyone is either talking through her act or looking at her hoping something funny will finally come out of her mouth.
    **
    she is the opposite of seinfeld, he kept it funny and didnt need to cuss to get a cheap laugh, this ugly broad cusses all the time in hopes for a laugh but the laugh is on her, she is too old for this pathetic shit, give it up already and worst of all comedy central gives her some validation.

  27. YUCK says – reply to this


    27

    what boundaries did she push fat ass, if you didnt like her on a personal note you would be the first pig to say she is one wack bitch.



  28. 28

    did they not know who sarah silverman was when they hired her? she just did what she does best!

  29. Heh says – reply to this


    29

    Everyone knows her bipolar style of humor so they should have known better than to book her, that was a very un TEDlike thing to do in the first place ..But she makes no apologies and that is her act, so love it or hate it just dont expect her to change it. I am not really a fan of hers but I am on her side on this one.



  30. 30

    Did I hear that America was the land of free speech? I must have dreamed that some where.



  31. 31

    Too funny. This reminds me of Stephen Colbert being invited to the Washington Correspondents' Dinner a few years ago, and causing an uproar by tearing into George W. Bush. What did the fools expect? Some retards need to learn something (ANYTHING) about their speakers before inviting them.



  32. 32

    obviously people need to stop being so RETARDED. sarah silverman is a controversial comic, and a damn funny one at that. if you don't like her, don't watch her show, she doesn't need your viewership. and if you think perez is wrong for liking her, don't visit his website, he doesn't need your hits. grow up and stop being douchebags. and for those of you who like her, it just means you have an awesome sense of humor. team silverman!



  33. 33

    I think that there are sooooo many double standards at play here. John Mayer is a douche for trying to be "funny" about race, but Sarah Silverman is funny for talking about the mentally handicapped.

    Total BS. It's all in or all out. If we are going to as a society play nice and respectful then all slurs by anyone go out the window. If, however, we are going to make exceptions then we will never progress. Either we all just have a ribald free for all or we decide to self-censor and never use any derogatory word in any context.



  34. 34

    Go Sarah!



  35. 35

    I hate this horse-faced c*unt. Like most gay men, I certainly welcome the crass comedy any comedienne brings to the table, but this stupid bitch is just tasteless and a far cry from funny. Being funny and being a complete, moronic imbecile are two different things. Hopefully she'll get hit by a car pretty soon.



  36. 36

    she could have picked another topic other than terminally ill children.
    maybe something on the technological side?



  37. 37

    Personally I dont care for her,I just dont find her funny.



  38. 38

    pushing boundaries, and making fun of retarded people are two different things. Besides, these liberal comedians, they think if they say 'sarah palin' they are being funny. Sarah used to be funny, now she just attacks. And to say, 'they knew who they were hiring' , a 'professional' also knows their audience. An audience on technology, design and EDUCATION. And she does jokes on 'retarded people'. Looks like that professional really isn't and was just pulling whatever material she had, instead of doing material suited to her crowd. She is on her way out and I am glad Kimmel dumped her ugly ass



  39. 39

    She sucks and they shouldn't have hired her. It's equally their fault.

    The guy was just stating his opinion, which he has every right to do. She should just shutup and take it. In this country you don't have a right to NOT be offended. Grow a spine, Sarah.



  40. 40

    Re: Mickey9661 – I agree. I've tried watching her show, but it is pathetically unfunny. Watch what you say Sarah - you may be the parent of a developmentally disabled child someday (especially if it takes after you).



  41. 41

    Really, there is nothing left to say. They invited a retarded person to speak about mentally retarded children that were born that way. Sarah Silverman has chosen to be retarded and insensitive without regard for the feelings of people that cannot defend themselves. Something that causes so many people so much pain and guilt and anger should never, never, never, be taken so lightly. Sarah crossed the line and is too stupid to know.



  42. 42

    suddenly we LOVE AOL!!!!!…silverbitch sucks …not funny at all….WHY DID THEY INVITE THAT NO TALENT HAG?



  43. 43

    …..Perez is a big fat douche…



  44. 44

    How does this idiot get work? I thought you had to be funny to be a commedian!



  45. 45

    Her schtick has gotten really lame and boring,next she'll be telling fart jokes!



  46. 46

    Some people really don't get her. The joke was funny. She wasn't making fun of mentally challenged people. She was making fun of people who use special needs kids as accessories. It was pretty funny if you get it.



  47. 47

    Sarah Silverman is not funny. Insulting people is not funny. Accepting money to be crude and rude to your host and their guests is not funny. Offending people in the audience, who had no choice but to listen to it (remember paying money to see Sara Silverman is different from paying money to attend a conference on technology) is not funny. She should have rmembered who her audience was and the fact that they were not there to really see her. She owes her hosts and their guests an apology.



  48. 48

    Re: Ozz465 – As mentioned before, the audience did not pay to see her as they would have to be at one of her shows. They paid to attend a conference on technology and as such SS should have remembered that her audience was not the dimwitted narrow-minded losers and bullies that are usually in her audience. Berating people is SO NOT FUNNY, and very much why the need for political correctness exists.



  49. 49

    Not appropriate for TED. I can see that the people at this venue though that they would be clever and get someone who is edgy, but come on, have you not heard her speak? She would be more appropriate for a conference like Adults With Warped Senes of Humor,Idiots and Terriblness AWWSHIT



  50. 50

    Her comments we also really in poor taste, just like the family guy. You do not poke fun at Retards or children. I have poor taste in comics, but she is one that I will choose to stop listening to.



  51. 51

    Obviously the TED organizers thought that she understood what TED is about. The bar is a little higher when you appear at TED. Or she did it just to get publicity.



  52. 52

    Team Sarah! Corporate types should know when they hire Sarah S. or Kathy Griffin that they are going to get outrageous, plain-spoken diatribe! Go with it and be proud!



  53. 53

    never liked her or her humor.



  54. 54

    ummm … it was Sarah Silverman. You invited her. If you want warm and fuzzy get Oprah next time. I hear she'll be available.



  55. 55

    It is a double sided mistake and they're both to blame…the conference organizers should have known better than to invite her and she should know when the right time to turn it on and off is. I know it's her shtick to be "edgey" but save that for your own show and be a little more appropriate at a gathering like this. An TED, don't invite peple that aren't techie dorks!

    I hope Sarah Silverman ends up with a special needs child. I bet she wouldn't think it was SO funny then.

  57. @v@ says – reply to this


    57

    If they want good taste, why hire Sarah Silverman? Go on youtube and see what she does before booking her.



  58. 58

    sarah is awesome! they new what they were getting when they invited her.. if they wanted something more PC than they shouldn't have asked her to do it..



  59. 59

    YAY!! GO TEDCHRIS AND STEVE CASE I AM THEIR NEW BIGGEST FANS!!
    SOMEONE NEEDED TO SMACK DOWN THIS UGLY BITCH- no one likes her which is why her ratings are in the fucking tank!!! shes is mistaking offensiveness with edginess, and she can go fu ck herself now that jimmy kimmel refuses to do it!!



  60. 60

    i guess making fun of "retards" is the new platform for the democratic party? sarah silverman's done it (despite the fact her entire audience is retards), seth mcfarlane did it, and obama has done it.
    they should really reconsider- THEY JUST INSULTED EVERY MEMBER OF THEIR PARTY!!



  61. 61

    that's like the dumbass group last year who invited a black comedian (chris rock? chris tucker? i don't remember) who is well know for using the N-word in his standup…then they were SHOCKED AND HORRIFIED when he used the N-word.

    people are fucking stupid if they think Sarah Silverman is not going to be edgy and foul mouthed. if you want someone clean cut don't invite her morons!

    Sarah is 100% in the right on this and those other guys are just stick up the ass tightward nerds too worried about being PC



  62. 62

    You know what amazes me most about this? That someone is so willing to throw everything they stand for out the window so quickly in order to insult someone whose politics they don't like. Can you imagine Sarah Silverman making similar comments about one of the Obama daughters? Of course not–it would be wrong for anyone to do so. It's just as wrong to attack the disabled child of a Republican as it to attack the disabled child of a Democrat. Why don't we just leave people's kids out of our political attacks altogether? It's time for people like Sarah Silverman and Perez Hilton to grow the hell up.



  63. 63

    Oh please, Sarah Silverman is lucky to be booked anywhere to be fucking honest.That bitch isn't funny and all her shit is stupid. Her show on comedycentral was shit. why they are reviving that lump of steaming dogcrap is beyond me. She's basically the stupid version of that whiney ass feminist wannabe janeane garofalo. The relevance peeked when she dated Kimmel.



  64. 64

    Re: Andy27
    Hahahahaha! Agree, Nice and harsh at the end.Lmao!



  65. 65

    It doesn't sound like Sarah did any prep work before this gig and just did one of her ready-made stand-up routines. She probably should have toned it down a notch and made an attempt to tailor her act to the TED crowd.
    Also, she is REALLY good friends with Howard Stern - I think being good friends with Howard Stern lets her think that she will get more famous if she goes a little raunchy, like it will make her edgy like Howard.



  66. 66

    I think the more I read/see of this cvnt, the more I hate her…



  67. 67

    I'm sorry I don't see the humour. It's just plain offensive.



  68. 68

    Re: coqauvin – Why make this about religion, you dumb ass? You don't even know what the term "chosen people" even means - it refers to responsibility and sacrifice and being required to live your life in a humble, moral, and ethical way. That's if you subscribe to that view. However, it's no surprise you don't realize this, considering you can't even spell coque properly….coqauvian LMAO!! You are so dumb, it's hurting me.



  69. 69

    The people who find Sarah's humour offensive don't understand it. Sarah calls people out. Sarah is calling out those people who want to believe they are good people by intentionally giving birth to and/or adopting developmentally disabled children. She's saying it's selfish. It's selfish b/c people who do this are doing it for THEMSELVES and not for the benefit of the child. It's selfish b/c while the parents of the child may feel superior and "good" and benevolent and be seen by society as such - their child will suffer in the long run. Society is cruel to the developmentally disabled and the parents are NOT thinking of their child. Having a developmentally disabled child gives parents a cachet of exclusivity viz "Oh, what a brave and couragous woman - caring for her cute developmentally disabled child". And parents LOVE being needed.
    *



  70. 70

    But eventually that child will grow up to be a developmentally disabled adult. Not so cute anymore. Society will be cruel to him/her. She/he will be taken advantage of. My ex has a developmentally disabled uncle. It is HORRIFIC what he has to go through. His own friends steal money from him and he has no idea and thinks they are his best friends. His mom is in her 90s. Who will look after him? It's unbelievably sad and there is nothing cute about it. That's what Sarah Silverman is trying to convey via her humour. The problem is it's above a lot of peoples' heads. Sarah's trying to point out that people who ostensibly do "good things" do it out of selfishness and not out of love.
    *
    I'm not sure how I feel about Sarah Silverman's humour but I do recognize that it isn't mean-spirited. Her humour is intended to make people re-examine their hypocritical beliefs. But a lot of people just don't get it.



  71. 71

    Listening to or watching Sarah Silverman is equal to listening to or watching a Psych patient. You initially have compassion, but eventually become tired and bored with her. Psychos are tedious!!



  72. 72

    TEAM SARAH SILVERMAN ALL THE WAY!



  73. 73

    Sarah Silverman: "I'm an attention-starved four year old in a grown-up's body, and when things don't make sense to me, or when I find things funny about people I don't like, I write them down. And then I laugh, because I'm an attention-starved four yeard old in a grown-up's body, and I actually believe that every thing I think is funny about people I don't like is something that every one else will think is funny."



  74. 74

    Re: Dave Letterman - staff fucker – Please don't assume that the posters who find her offensive "don't get it". We know she's calling people on their shit. It's not flying over our poor little heads. We just disagree with her approach. You don't need to spell it out in a two part post. Thanks

  75. YUCK says – reply to this


    75

    Re: barbados789 – OMG so true, her humor if you can call it that doesnt offend me, its just super lame. I feel sorry for her.



  76. 76

    Re: brish549 – I'm glad I enlightened you as to how her humour is to be taken. And I really don't mind spelling it out for you in a two-part post. I consider it my humanitarian duty. You are welcome :)



  77. 77

    Why do people continue to push comedians like Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes and Margaret Cho on us? Everything they touch turns to shit, and yet still we see them getting shows and specials. I don't understand?



  78. 78

    this is ridiculous. she does this for a living, and theyre going to take back what they did after the fact? theyre morons



  79. 79

    She doesn't push the envelope, she spits in it and seals it so that it stays mucky and useless. That's what her comedy is. No real witty observations. She sounds like a surly thirteen year old girl with a shrill voice. She seems to be very able to get jobs and very unable to keep them. Shows, SNL, playing the bitchy girlfriend, etc. Mitch Hedberg made simple observations about life that were funny and you didn't want to punch him in the face because he always talked in the same strange manner.



  80. 80

    if were good on using retard then can we also use gaytard?



  81. 81

    alls i have to say is "i'm fucking ben affleck" and "i'm fucking matt damon" hahahah funniest songs ever written. period. she's out of her mind bat shit crazy and if they knew that they likely wouldn't have invited her. get a grip the worlds full of shit and its all on how you handle yourself that makes the difference. you cant control other people. stfu



  82. 82

    Silverman's humor runs the gamut of insulting to crual so if that's the kind of person you are, you will find her amusing. However, if you are a human being,Silverman is not amusing at all. The promoter needs to see acts before he books them instead of trying to book comic that are "cutting edge". Silverman for her part, needs to get with the times, Case hasn't been with AOL for quite some time. I guess she isn't so cutting edge after all.



  83. 83

    I for one cant stand the bitch!!! Ever since the jokes on Brit Brit's kids when she called them a mistake. I think she is overated and will do anything to get attention. The pinacle of her carrer was dateing Jimmy Kimel cant stand the bitch.



  84. 84

    Sarah kicks butt and then some!!! :-)



  85. 85

    This is like inviting Bill O'Liely to speak at a Democratic convention and be nice. YIKES! Those planners are to blame.



  86. 86

    Celebrity ass kisses as always!



  87. 87

    AOL Can Go and Tank Tomorrow, I Don't Care, is one of the anthems from the new Post-bands music. One aspect of the new music is that it has some bite with its melody.
    Go Silverman.

    I think Sarah is pathetic. My nephew is special needs.. Perez, i would never have thought you would stand beside her.. I love your site because your always passionate and stand behind what you believe in. Equal rights but to go TEAM sarah is just sad.. She gets her laughs by belittling a certain group. They are human beings most of which CANNOT stand up for themselves.



  89. 89

    Re: azulle – How about we call YOU a fucktard? Seems appropriate.



  90. 90

    Sarah Silverman is a douchebag! It's not cool to make fun of disabled children.



  91. 91

    It was stupid to invite Sarah Silverman. However she proves that she is nothing more than a tacky washed-up wanna-be comedian with no real comedic genius. Using "retarded" is not and never has been funny. People that use it are ignorant and by defending their actions prove that they have no respect or brains. I feel bad for Sarah and people who think they are avant-garde or funny…your not so get over yourself and smarten up.
