    What the fuck? Howard Stern Syndrome is infecting a comedian once known for being edgy and offensive.

    ----------------------------------

    Sarah Silverman on 2007 Blackface Sketch: 'It's Totally Racist out of Context, and I Regret That'

    Comedians are known for pushing the envelope when it comes to social issues, but Sarah Silverman admits that at least one of her bits has left her with some regret. On Thursday's Watch What Happens Live, a caller asked Silverman, 44, "What is the most regrettable joke you've ever delivered?"

    Silverman's jaw dropped, and she sat silent for a moment before host Andy Cohen asked the comic if she had "any jokes that you have felt like, 'Yeah, I wish that I had not [said that]'?" Silverman's answer was mixed: "Yeah – but no in that I like looking back at stuff I did 10 years ago and cringeing. That means I'm growing and changing. I like to be changed by new information."

    In the episode, "Me and the waiter in the restaurant, played by Alex Désert, switch [races]," she explained. "I say it's harder to be Jewish, and he says it's harder to be black, and we switch for the day. And it's really aggressively stupid, and we're both idiots."

    In addition to sending up common, offensive stereotypes of both Jewish and African American people, Silverman wore blackface in the bit and later tweeted out a still from the episode for her fans.

    "Now it's forever there and it looks [like] it's totally racist out of context, and I regret that," Silverman said. "But there's nothing I can do about that."

    She should apologize for calling herself a comedian all these years.

    She should apologize for not being funny and for having a severe case of Jewface.

    She's so old - it's really time to go away. Even far left Hollywood won't embrace such an old one trick pony, even if she jumps through all the requisite hoops to prove her leftist allegiance.

    Funny because that episode was good, I saw it when it aired... forever ago before she became a crazy abortion activist

    Starts at 3 minutes in, eventually she convinces the entire town to go blackface

    I liked Sarah and thought her show was funny. But I think this is where we part ways. Just like when Chappelle got mad at white people for laughing at his jokes. I was a major fan, but that was it for me. Asshole doesn't get to make millions off white people laughing at his jokes and then say it's not right (and then not give back the millions or donate it to a black cause).

    This is getting fucking ridiculous. Pretty soon, no one will be funny. It's already nearly come to that. Tosh.0 and Always Sunny are pretty much the only current things I find funny. And I've heard the latest Tosh episodes have gone way downhill (I haven't seen them yet).

    There's a lot of hilarious people coming up on YouTube and podcasts. there's not going to be a void left by Sarah. that's why Howard has attacked YouTube and podcasts repeatedly, he's incredibly threatened by some of the talent.

    he started a feud with Ari Shafir, the most talentless loser on the internet, because he was no threat and Howard knew he would look better than Ari. but there's plenty of funny people online.

    Tosh is only funny goofing on videos. His attempts at skits and humor w/o using the videos fall flat. But I have to say this season not much is all that funny even including the videos, and even he likes to call others "racist" only half-joking.. Comedy is dead.

    Friday on Jay Thomas, Shuli was all bent out of shape at the idea of someone going as a famous black basketball player, and even Jay and Cristina couldn't agree with him.

    The future of Comedy is a bunch of unfunny Shuli hacks, get used to it.

    I used to think Silverman was funny most of the time. Now she just takes herself way too seriously. Seems to be a prerequisite for nearly everyone who goes to the far left or right of the political spectrum.

    II was just finishing up her interview on the show and she wrapped up by saying basically the same and praising the pelican for evolving. It really was sickening. Part of his problem is that he gets support for not being funny anymore from these "celebrities".

    He's evolved himself right out of being funny.

    If Sarah wants to change her act, I'm ok with it since it's on her dime, unlike Howard who is ripping off his employer paying him hundreds of million of dollars.

    I just hate the apologies about the content of prior work and whining that due to social media (and lack of rights to the material), it cannot be controlled. No 'Tapes Team' for Sarah. Waaaaaah.
