Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, November 27th at 7:30pm for “Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic” at the Kendall Square Cinema. Look for Sean wearing a nametag and sitting in the little seating area in the lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
“Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic is written by Sarah Silverman, directed by Liam Lynch, and produced by Heidi Herzon, Mark Williams and Randy Sosin. Lynch, the fastrising video and film director currently in production on the feature TENACIOUS D IN: THE PICK OF DESTINY, collaborated with Silverman to adapt her show to the screen. The film comprises Silverman’s performance before a live audience interwoven with stylish musical numbers and backstage intrigue. Bob Odenkirk, Brian Posehn and Silverman’s comedian/actor sister, Laura Silverman, make appearances along with Silverman’s band The Silver Men.
Silverman, who has been compared to the legendary Lenny Bruce, is known as one of the funniest and most provocative people in comedy. Despite the current political climate, in JESUS IS MAGIC she takes on such pitchblack topics as September 11 th , unwanted body hair, and the Holocaust, and spins them into decidedly unpolitically correct comedic gold. As she says in the film, “When God gives you AIDS, (and God does give you AIDS, by the way) make LemonAIDS.”
