OMG! Can you believe Sarah Silverman has never had an HBO special?

The comedian is a household name and well on her way to becoming a legend and somehow she's only just now hitting the hallmark of ha ha, the hourlong HBO special.

HBO programming president Michael Lombard is excited to finally have the offensive-in-all-the-right-ways woman on the not-TV-network. He says:

"Sarah Silverman is a fresh, fearless and utterly original comedy voice. I’m thrilled that we can bring the humor of this unique talent to our viewers."

There was one awkward moment in negotiations when Sarah demanded the cable channel give her one of those baby dragons from Game Of Thrones.

Execs laughed but admitted it's really hard to tell if the straight-faced comic was kidding, especially after she started tweeting about how she was "finally going to be a mother."

JK! Luckily, Sarah is funnier than we are, and we can't wait to see how crazy she gets in We Are Miracles, set to premiere this fall!

    I am a big fan of Sarah. But it is interesting how she gets away with "racist" humor by taking on a persona in her act. If a white male comedian tried the same humor without taking on such an obvious persona he would be skewered. Some people are offended though. When I saw her in concert the female half a hispanic couple put her hand on her date's chest as a way of telling him to calm down because he was steaming and looked like he was about to jump out of his chair and go after her.

    I don't know what's more annoying - her voice or her lack of humor. There are actual funny comedians out there more deserving of a special.
